At the close of the First Gulf War, feminist architectural historian Beatriz Colomina wrote that war today speaks about the difficulty of establishing the limits of domestic space.

Criminal Queers visualizes a radical trans/queer struggle against the prison industrial complex and toward a world without walls.

This talk examines representations of Muslim women in the U.S. news media post-9/11/01, focusing on how Muslim women became sites of public sympathy and moral outrage. It argues that the logics central to the War on Terror are not possible without their accompanying affects, showing how Muslim women are designated as worthy of feeling while Muslim men are not.
