About the conference

Join our association for our fourth annual meeting from May 29-31, 2016 at the University of Calgary. As critical scholars and activists situated in relation to various academic, artistic, and political networks, the association runs a variety of panels, workshops, performances, and exhibits that highlight the intersections of sexuality, race, class, gender, and indigeneity. This year, our conference explores the places of resistance and collusion operationalized by contemporary sexualities and sexuality studies. We ask which communities and forms of belonging are made viable, and which are rendered uninhabitable within contemporary framings of sexuality in an age of global politics?
