January 17 and 18, 2020
An Academic Symposium at the Center for Popular Culture and Music at Uni Freiburg, Rosatraße 17-19, 79098 Freiburg.
This symposium seeks to consider how feminist, queer and trans* musicians, filmmakers, writers, photographers and performers contribute to popular culture.
Which affects do their works engender, how do they rouse their audience and to what ends? How do queer pop-stars use fame, fashion and performance to fabricate and circulate ambiguous messages about new forms of gender, race, class and desire and even about the limits of what is considered to be human? Which other ways of living and relating to difference in all its forms do their contributions
