Come and join us for a relaxed in-person exploration of Queer Theory and the many ways we can use it in our everyday lives!

About this event

Queer Theory encompasses an intentional questioning and deconstructing of the categories (man or woman), oppositions (man vs. woman, heterosexual vs. homosexual) and equations (gender=sex) that underpin notions of identity and sexuality (Rosemary Hennessy, Queer Theory: A Review of the difference Special Issue and Wittig's The Straight Mind).

Queer Theory, alike various domains of theory, has a reputation for being 'out of reach' or 'difficult to grasp'. We strongly believe it doesn't have to be that way and want to take folks who are interested in Queer Theory, on a journey to explore how it can be used in everyday life. The discussion will be naturally led by the thoughts and reflections of the participants - we will also provide discussion prompters i.e excerpts from texts and visuals.

Following on from the main discussion, participants are then invited to partake in a Zine workshop where they can develop what they've explored into an authentic Zine!!

All activities are hosted by Book28 Volunteers. If you have any questions about the event please don't hesitate to contact us on: book28.library@gmail.com
