Queer New York: Online Roundtable Discussion

Online via Zoom
Wednesday 3 February 2021 (16:00-18:00)

This exciting interdisciplinary roundtable discussion explores 'Queer New York', from the perspectives of four writers whose work has collectively addressed the HIV-AIDS pandemic, gentrification and memory, the Black gay cultural renaissance, ruins, cruising and the waterfront, and queer theatre/performance, art, and seriousness.

Our four panellists are: 

Sarah Schulman (CSI CUNY), author of numerous works including The Gentrification of the Mind: Witness to a Lost Imagination (University of California Press, 2012) and People In Trouble (Dutton, 1990; Vintage, 2019);

Darius Bost (Utah), author of Evidence of Being: the Black Gay Cultural Renaissance (University of Chicago Press, 2019);

Fiona Anderson (Newcastle), author of Cruising the Dead River: David Wojnarowicz and New York's Ruined Waterfront (University of Chicago Press, 2019);

Gavin Butt (Northumbria), author of Between You and Me: Queer Disclosures in the New York Art World (Duke University Press, 2005).

The event will be chaired by Rona Cran and John Fagg.
