271. Queer(s) Reading

12:00 PM–1:15 PM Jan 10, 2020 (US - Pacific)

WSCC - 611

Session Information

Description: Panelists explore queer methods of reading, taking up arguments about misreading, rereading, reading askew, reading with regard, wrong reading, and not (yet) reading. Discussion centers on a desire to continue to play with and expand the queer potential of how we read beyond the impasse of arguments between ideology critique and surface reading.
