Program

Jasbir Puar is Associate Professor of Women's & Gender Studies at Rutgers University. She is the author of Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times, which won the 2007 Cultural Studies Book Award from the association for Asian American studies. In this lecture she will reflect on the last ten years of homonationalism and its effects. Puar is especially interested in what the Trump presidency and other right-wing governments might suggest about the successes and failures of LGBTQ human rights platforms and about the elasticity of homonationalism. She finally points out that U.S. driven queer theoretical projects need to account for the U.S. as a generator of permanent war both globally and within its own boarders.
