The Twilight of Queerness?

Too much contemporary Queer/LGBT political activism and scholarship is bogged down by bitterly dichotomous academic disputes. The marriage/anti-marriage and relational/anti-relational debates, for instance, wildly miss a larger political and intellectual potential for queer studies to be a project that breaks apart and surpasses ideological binaries.

Queer CUNY VIII: The Twilight of Queerness? is a student conference that seeks to end reductionist political discourse. The organizers contend that the original possibilities of queer theory, while inspiring, have not been fully realized, and aim to provide more than just space in which to consider this quandary. Instead, the conference will encourage queer students, activists, teachers, community members, and others to imagine life and scholarship beyond the limits of ongoing dichotomy and division.
