This workshop brings together scholars whose interests intersect at the nodes of queer lives, queer politics and queer cultures.

We look into (pop) cultural productions as well as legal and political conditions and ramifications of non-normative genders and sexualities, hoping to engage in a dialogue about queer cultures, initiatives and rights in Japan and Germany. We do this with a particular emphasis on the always already ‚glocal‘ condition and discussion within the Asia-Pacific, European and global contexts. How can different cultural, social and political expressions and discourses help us situate and better understand the various contested meanings of „queer“ in the transnational present?

Alle Informationen finden Sie auch noch einmal gesammelt auf unserem Poster, eine PDF-Datei finden Sie im Anhang dieser Mail.

Mit herzlichen Grüßen
