an online symposium
Friday, April 9, 2021
“Queer Utopias” is a one-day celebration of the forms, modes, and styles of happy queer placemaking. In a historical present dominated by contestations over the future of political life, claims and counterclaims to hidden knowledge, and the inflammatory effects of paranoia, this symposium highlights those hopeful experiments of the past and present whose legacies of pleasure, ease, care, and joy might inspire future experimentation and maybe, by doing so, remake the world.
