Teaching, Not Bowing: Queer Pedagogy in an Age of Assimilation

James Baldwin_thumb

October 14, Wednesday
7 to 9 PM

LGBTQ Studies Pedagogy Workshop presented by CUNY Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) and co-sponsored by CSGS.

Matthew Brim, English, College of Staten Island, CUNY

This workshop will explore the responsibilities of the queer studies teacher in hyperassimilationist gay and straight culture. How might queer classrooms be intentionally framed as separatist in this context, and what does separatist queer pedagogy look like? The workshop will be discussion based, so please come ready to participate.

Matthew Brim is Assistant Professor of Queer Studies in the English department at the College of Staten Island, CUNY. His research focuses mostly on 20th- and 21st-century queer American literature and culture. His current book project, titled “James Baldwin and the Queer Imagination,” argues that Baldwin plays a central and complicated role in the “queer imagination,” a term used to characterize the overlapping creative energies and critical approaches that have given rise to the universalizing project of queer literary and theoretical inquiry.

CUNY Graduate Center
365 Fifth Avenue, Room C201
between 34th & 35th Streets
