Coalitional Possibilities: Public Lecture with Professor Gail Lewis and Professor Rod Ferguson

Public Lectures

Coalition as Space of Inter-Generational Learning 

Gail Lewis, Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Yale University 
Drawing on work with a feminist Muslim community organisation based in London, this talk considers the extent to which inter generational dialogue around queer desire opens a space for changing modes of mutuality and respect outside registers of hetero-kinship, that so easily and often frame inter generational encounter. 

The Antagonisms Between Bourgeois and Coalitional Formations 

Roderick Ferguson, American Studies, Yale University 
This talk uses the histories of black, queer, and labor formations to theorize the internecine relationships between bourgeois and coalitional practices, particularly as they pertain to race, sexuality, and the critique of capital.
