On (Queer) Opacities

A conversation series hosted by the GenderQueer Lab at the Institute for European Ethnology

The series reflects on the right to opacity, a concept developed by the Caribbean author-theorist Édouard Glissant whose voice has gained wide recognition in several fields engaging with de-and-postcolonial frameworks. Our scheduled events host Gayatri Gopinath on 24/5, Anna T. on 14/6 [online], and Omar Kasmani on 13/7. How to negotiate the right to opacity through our research engagements? And how to write opacity in relation to queer beings and becomings? 
Curated by Prof. Dr. Beate Binder and Imad Gebrayel
