Session Information

Description: Previous scholarship has highlighted the geocultural traveling and mutations of queer as a powerful, generative tool in the social-political and scholarly dimensions of diverse Chinese-speaking contexts. Participants explore the potential of queer in forming disruption and alternation to normative discourses through specific case studies in contemporary Chinese-language entertainment media and pop culture.
