Pedro Di Pietro: “Decolonizing Queer Space: Race, Sexuality and the Production of the Real”
April 25, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
Pedro Di Pietro
Visiting Assistant Professor; Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities and Townsend Fellow, UCB; Research Affiliate, Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Philosophy, Interpretation, and Culture, Binghamton University
Professor Di Pietro examines the production of queer spaces in the Andes and their diasporic dispersal in the Americas. He also examines geopolitical linkages between subaltern queerness and vernacular spirituality among Latino/as in the U.S., weaving regional epistemologies of sex/gender/desire together with a critique of the human/non-human distinction and its ethico-political aftermath across ethnic, gender, and queer studies.
CO-SPONSORS: The Department of Latin American and Latino Studies, and the Critical Race and Ethnicity Studies Research Cluster.
