​2016 DC Queer Studies Symposium
The 2016 DC Queer Studies Symposium will be held on April 22. We invite proposals for presentations addressing the theme “Queer Beyond Repair” from a variety of inter and transdisciplinary perspectives. Suggested topics include but are not limited to :

  • queer theories of social, material, and symbolic death ;
  • queer practices of survival and endurance, including methodological and aesthetic practices ;
  • queer perspectives on anti-blackness, slavery, and colonial and imperial violence ;
  • queer ecologies and ontologies of the posthuman, nonhuman, and inhuman ;
  • eassessments of reparative and paranoid approaches in queer theory ;
  • queer approaches to sovereignty, broadly construed

Proposals for 15 to 20-minute presentations should include name, affiliation, e-mail address, title of paper, a 250-word abstract, and a 1-2 page CV.

We also welcome submissions for 45 to 60-minute panels, but we may reorganize speakers due to the demands of scheduling. If you submit a panel, please include a panel title and a brief explanation of the panel rationale.

Please send materials by e-mail attachment (Word or PDF only) by January 15, 2016 to DCQS@umd.edu.

Put “Submission for Queer Beyond Repair” in the subject line of your message. For more information, contact JV Sapinoso at sapinoso@umd.edu. Selected participants will be notified by February 19, 2016.

All symposium events are free and open to the public.
