Resisting Norms or Overthrowing Oppression? The Radical Futurelessness of Queer Politics
C. Heike Schotten
Associate Professor of Political Science, College of Liberal Arts
University of Massachusetts, Boston
The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) is pleased to present “ZER0 FUTURE.” The conference contemplates the intersecting, hopeful, and dystopian imaginaries of current futurisms, with a particular focus on its queer and feminist trajectories. Blending academic and artistic practice, the day's events will include three panel discussions highlighting McGill graduate students and other researchers on the topics of decolonizing the future, technology and futurism, and futures of the mediated body.
You are cordially invited to the Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) for our annual Welcome Reception to celebrate the new academic year. This is an informal opportunity to reacquaint yourselves with our staff, students and fellow colleagues around the university, and to meet new hires, students and staff members. The reception is also a chance to greet our new visiting professors and postdoctoral students. We hope you will join us to socialize over a glass of wine and other refreshments. Everyone is welcome.
