Colloquium on Gender and Violence
September 23, 2019 @ 11:50 am - 1:20 pm
Dr. Katrina Daly Thompson speaks on the topic of gender and violence during the History Department Colloquium.
Her presentation is titled, “Becoming Muslim with a ‘Queer Voice’: LGBT Muslim Resistance to the Symbolic Violence of Ideological Erasure.”
Based on ethnographic research in a multi-sited nonconformist Muslim community, the paper examines LGBT Muslim erasure by dominant Islamic and homonormative ideologies, how LGBT Muslims queer those ideologies in order to forge narratives of belonging, and what such queering explains about the relationship among erasure, symbolic violence, and resistance.
