Queer Focus Series: Activism

March 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The impacts of war can be felt far outside the actual battlefield. Russia’s war against Ukraine has set off historic levels of migration, in addition to huge environmental and economic impacts. Modern war also disproportionately affects gender and sexual minorities, something we are seeing in Ukraine even as Putin’s anti-LGBTQ+ agenda seeks to relentlessly drive support for the war at home. How can a queer-studies focus advance conversations about decolonization in East European and Eurasian Studies? To address this question, Queer Focus will have six virtual panels featuring speakers from various disciplines and institutions. Panelists and participants will explore how gendered regimes were constitutive of Russo-centric relationships of power, defining the region and how we study it, as we collectively grapple with what it means to re-examine our current research, teaching, and institutional practices.

Panel 6 of the series will examine the role and impact of queer activism within the region. Join Zoom Webinar.
