The Eighth Annual DC Queer Studies Symposium
The symposium will be a daylong series of conversations in critical queer and gender studies. Events will include concurrent paper sessions, a buffet lunch, followed by an afternoon faculty plenary. The day will culminate with the keynote address by Juana María Rodríguez followed by a reception. Rodríquez is Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, where she is also affiliated faculty with the Department of Theater, Dance and Performance studies; the Berkeley Center for New Media; the Center for Race and Gender; and the Center for the Study of Sexual Cultures. Professor Rodríguez is the author of two books, Queer Latinidad: Identity Practices, Discursive Spaces (NYU 2003) and Sexual Futures, Queer Gestures and Other Latina Longings (NYU 2014) and has published numerous articles related to her research interests in sexuality studies, queer activism in a transnational American context, critical race theory, technology and media arts, and Latin@ and Caribbean studies. She is currently working on a third book project that considers the intersection of age, sexuality, race and visual culture.
