Presented by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

Lisa Lowe (Tufts University), Tavia Nyong’o (Yale University), Licia Fiol-Matta (NYU Department of Spanish and Portuguese), and Manijeh Moradian (Barnard College) discuss Gayatri Gopinath’s (NYU Department of Social & Cultural Analysis) Unruly Visions: The Aesthetic Practices of Queer Diaspora (Duke University Press, 2018), which brings queer studies to bear on studies of diaspora and visuality, tracing the interrelation of affect, archive, region, and aesthetics through an examination of a wide range of contemporary queer visual culture.

Spanning film, fine art, poetry, and photography, the book stages unexpected encounters between work by South Asian, Middle Eastern, African, Australian, and Latinx artists such as Tracey Moffatt, Chitra Ganesh, Akram Zaatari, and Allan deSouza. Unruly Visions shows how their art functions as regional queer archives that express alternative understandings of time, space, and relationality. The roundtable will be followed by brief comments by Gopinath.

No registration required.
