Queering Paradigms V

Queering Narratives of Modernity


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.

Entrevista a León Sierra: ‘Es importante la politización de las y los artistas de las diversidades sexuales’

ANAMARÍA GARZÓN: Tomando a los 90 como década decisiva para los activismos GLBIT, ¿cómo analizas estas corrientes en Ecuador y la posibilidad de que se haya establecido un contexto queer para pensar en el arte?

LEÓN SIERRA: Creo que en estos años se ha afianzado la homofobia, que finalmente esconde una misoginia. Lo que quiero decir es que la homofobia no es más que una misoginia de la heteronormatividad de la mujer que habita en los cuerpos masculinos de los homosexuales, de los gays. El capitalismo machista utiliza a la misoginia como una herramienta de opresión y de exclusión.
