Transnational Sexualities Series presents: Gayatri Gopinath - "Unruly Visions: The Aesthetic Pratices of Queer Diaspora"


Unruly Visions examines queer visual aesthetic practices that negoti- ate diasporic movement in multiple geographic locations, and suggest other possibilities of moving through these spaces that deviate from the straight lines of hetero- and homonormative scripts that typically determine one’s life trajectory.

Gayatri Gopinath is Associate Professor in the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis, and the Director of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at NYU. She works at the intersection of transnational feminist and queer studies, postcolonial studies, and diaspora studies. Her new book, Unruly Visions: The Aesthetic Prac- tices of Queer Diaspora, is forthcoming from Duke University Press in October 2018.

This series and event is cosponsored by Stanford Humanities Center, CCSRE, and the Clayman Institute for Gender Research
