The Queer Theory Workshop at Columbia Law School together with the Institute for Research on Women and Gender will run a workshop/lecture series in the spring of 2011 reflecting on the current state of Queer Theory. Queer Theory emerged as a way of thinking about the social and cultural condition that cut diagonally across Feminist, Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Studies, which quickly proliferated into a series of theoretically and disciplinarily inflected approaches. This lecture series asks what conceptual, topical, and rhetorical forms have emerged over the last decade–and why these? What is the history of present *queer* approaches to social, political and cultural life, and what might be their legacies? We are particularly interested in reflections on Queer Theory’s contemporary focus on affect, friendship, intimacy, and kinship and the rhetorical forms these seem to demand or solicit, particularly in light of the prominence of marriage debates in the West, the emergence of Islamaphobia in the North, and portraits of sexual colonialism in the South.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
