Sept 19: A New Queer Agenda: launch party for Scholar & Feminist Online

a launch party for Scholar & Feminist Online

September 19, Wednesday
6 to 8 pm

Location:
NYU Department of Social and Cultural Analysis
20 Cooper Square, 4th floor

A New Queer Agenda, a special double issue of The Scholar and Feminist Online (issue 10.1-10.2, Fall 2011/Spring 2012 guest edited by Joseph N. DeFilippis, Lisa Duggan, Kenyon Farrow and Richard Kim), proposes a new set of issues for a revitalized queer movement with a global democratic vision, reaching across lines of race, ethnicity, gender and gender expression, class, religion, and nationality. The writers of the essays, documents, and interviews collected in this volume are all activists from across the country; they are visionary thinkers who are community organizers, journalists, social workers, writers, academics, lawyers, advocates, and counselors. Most of them have worked with the nonprofit Queers for Economic Justice (QEJ)—either as staff, board members, volunteers, or as colleagues at other social justice organizations with whom QEJ has worked closely. All of them share QEJ’s vision of seeking common ground and coalition with the full range of social justice organizations, rather than trying to determine what is a specifically “gay” issue.

Co-sponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis; the Barnard Center for Research on Women; and Queers for Economic Justice.

This event is free and open to the public.  Venue is wheelchair accessible.
