David L. Eng and Melissa E. Sanchez will discuss the critical and social implications of queer theory with an emphasis on its value for thinking about culture and politics across broad historical and geographical contexts. By extending the scope of queer theory beyond its usual boundaries of the contemporary U.S., Eng and Sanchez propose that we can better understand and contest the gendered, racial, and economic hierarchies through which sex and sexuality have become one of the primary languages of civilization and citizenship today.
