Queer/Cuir Américas Symposium

Friday, September 20, 2019
1:00-6:00 PM
Gallery Room 100 Hatcher Graduate Library Map
This is a public symposium of the Cuir Américas Working Group | Grupo de Trabajo Feminista/Queer/Cuir to be held in Ann Arbor on September 20, 2019, to advance the publication of two scholarly journal special issues that will appear in the United States (in English) and in Brazil (in Spanish and Portuguese). We aspire to create a public space at the University of Michigan for the discussion of LGBTQ Latinx, Indigenous, and Afro- diasporic gender and sexuality through this one-day public event. Our interdisciplinary, transnational, action-based, Latinx queer feminist scholarly group includes university-based scholars and independent scholars and activists that are involved in diverse educational initiatives in several Latin American countries and U.S. Latinx communities. We will host a panel discussion, a keynote speaker, and a reception.
