Feminist Translations/Queer Mobilities


Feminist Translations/Queer Mobilities examines themes of genealogy, temporality, acts of translation, and metaphors of mobility in feminist and queer approaches to art, practice, and politics. Bringing together the seminars of Professors Mel Y. Chen (Queer Translations/Gender and Women's Studies) and Julia Bryan-Wilson (Feminist and Queer Theories in Art/History of Art) to foster trans-disciplinary conversation and debate, the conference aims to give equal attention to artists and art objects as to theories and methods, while presuming that such domains are deeply intertwined. Two keynote speakers — Nandita Sharma and Gaye Chan — will bookend the day of graduate student panels. Co-sponsored by the History of Art Department and the Center for the Study of Sexual Culture.
