Archive Queer BIPOC* Histories: A Roundtable

9. July 2022 16:00

Archiving Queer BIPOC* Histories: A Roundtable with Peter Rehberg (SMU), Thao Ho (SMU) and Tarek Shukrallah (Humboldt University Berlin). Topics include trans-historical entanglements of queer movements (Germany-Indonesia), queer of color critique in archival work, archival records of migrant gay movements, and collection activities and indexing in the SMU archive.

The roundtable is part of the Unsettling Archives conference. The 3-day conference (7-9/7/22) focuses on the relationships between narrative and material representations of bodies and its frictions that unsettle and confirm gendered and racialized knowledge productions in archives. You’ll find more information here.

The event will be held at Schwules Museum in English and is a cooperation between Schwules Museum, Princeton University, and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Entrance: 4€
