POSTPONED! No-State Solution: Palestine and the Question of Queer Theory

The March 10 talk has been postponed to fall 2020. We will share a new date as soon as possible.

Dr. Puar will review nation-state based queer theory from the last three decades and explore what queer theories of anti-nationalism, non-nationalism, and no-state solutions could entail, converging with work in Black and Indigenous studies and movements in Palestine.
