Queer Directions Experimental Classroom

We invite all UofT graduate students across the disciplines to apply to participate in an “experimental classroom” as part of the Bonham Centre’s annual Queer Directions event. Each year, Queer Directions features innovative developments in queer studies, focusing on emerging and vital themes and critiques. This year’s topic is Indigeneities and Sexualities, and the classroom will be led by our symposium speakers:

Audra Simpson (Kahnawake Mohawk) is Professor of Anthropology at Columbia University.

Dayna Danger is a 2Spirit/Queer, Metis/Saulteaux/Polish visual artist who uses photography, sculpture, performance and video to question the lines between empowerment and objectification by claiming space with her larger than life scale work.

Joseph M. Pierce is Associate Professor in the Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature at Stony Brook University.

T.J. Tallie is Assistant Professor, History at the University of San Diego.

This is an opportunity to discuss ideas and share work with some of the most important artists, activists, and scholars in the fields of Indigenous studies, intersectional queer theory, gender studies, transnationalism and diaspora, and critical race theory.

The classroom will be held on Thursday, March 11, from 3pm-5pm, on Zoom.

Applications open on February 01 and close on February 22. Applicants can expect to hear back by February 25.  To apply, please fill out the form below.
