Sexuality, Immigration, and the Racial State: Towards an Effective Queer Politics

Date: 
03/26/2013 -
12:00pm to 1:30pm
Location: 
Women's Center Conference Room (Frist 243)
Speakers: 
Chandan Reddy, University of Washington

In this talk American Studies scholar Chandan Reddy reviews the many different moments during which the state regulation of homosexuality and immigration have intersected with one another since the middle of the 20th century. Charting these intersections can allow LGBTQ of color activists, policy makers and advocates to see and pursue a distinct trajectory of anti-state politics within the current "Immigrant Rights" movement.
