Queer Anthro Reading Group

In this monthly reading group, we explore different dimensions of and perspectives on queer anthropology. Our selection of texts pursues two strategies: (1) to read across different disciplinary and theoretical contexts (queer and gender studies, feminisms, intersectionality/critical race theory) and bring these into conversation with ethnographic texts; (2) to explore a sense of diachronic reading by discussing current debates and issues in relation with “classics” and “older” theoretical and political concerns.

We cordially invite colleagues to join us. If you are interested, please contact:

Date and Time: Every third Wednesday of the month, 15:00–16:30

Venue: MS Teams or at ISEK
