Queering Paradigms V

Queering Narratives of Modernity

Series:

Edited By María Amelia Viteri and Manuela Lavinas Picq

The authors of this edited volume use a queer perspective to address colonialism as localized in the Global South, to analyse how the queer can be decolonized and to map the implications of such conversations on hegemonic and alternative understandings of modernity. This book is distinct in at least four ways. First, its content is a rare blend of original scholarly pieces with internationally acclaimed art. Second, it is a volume that blends theoretical debates with policy praxis, filling a gap that often tends to undermine the reach of either side at play. Third, its topic is unique, as sexual politics are put in direct dialogue with post-colonial debates. Fourth, the book brings to the forefront voices from the Global South/non-core to redefine a field that has been largely framed and conceptualized in the Global North/core.

MARCELO AGUIRRE

Inauguración, Quinta Conferencia Internacional de Paradigmas Queer ‘Narrativas Queer de la modernidad’

Quito, FLACSO Ecuador, Febrero 20–24, 2014

Esta iniciativa de pensar el cuerpo y las sexualidades desde el Arte nace en 2012, a partir del Coloquio Internacional Queer. En esa ocasión, se buscó acentuar una tensión entre arte y academia para generar una mirada sensible, reflexiva, crítica de estos cuerpos y sus jerarquías, sus límites bajo imaginarios de una sociedad tradicional.
