Feminist Translations/Queer Mobilities: A Symposium

Conference/Symposium | December 8 | 9 a.m.-5 p.m. | 308A Doe Library

Gaye Chan, Professor of Art & Art History, University of Hawaii at Manoa; Nandita Sharma, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Hawaii at Manoa

Center for the Study of Sexual Culture, Department of History of Art

The daylong symposium Feminist Translations/Queer Mobilities critically examines genealogy, temporality, acts of translation, and metaphors of mobility in feminist and queer theories of art and politics. It will attempt to give equal attention to artists and art objects as to theories, practices and methods, while presuming that the two domains are of course deeply intertwined.
