resoundingly queer

ConferenceBanner55

Held in conjunction with a year-long exploration of the theme of SOUND across the humanities at Cornell, The Department of Theatre, Film and Dance invites you to “Resoundingly Queer."  This gathering of academics, artists, and activists will explore the utterances, echoes, moans, and groans that animate contemporary studies of sex, gender, and sexuality.  The event will include performances by gender-bending luminaries of the stage and screen, as well as plenary sessions featuring scholars and practitioners in conversation on panels, roundtables, and interviews.
