The University of Toronto Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies monthly Sex Salon Speaker Series and the Caribbean Studies Program present:

Queer, Creole, Contested: Caribbean Archives Reimagined
Wednesday, November 27, 2019
University College 253

In this panel, space is opened to reimagine ideas of legitimate histories, legitimate archives, and legitimate knowledge production within the Caribbean (to queer the Caribbean). Focusing particularly on the idea of alternative archives, this panel will be chaired by MÓNICA ESPAILLAT LIZARDO, who will present their doctoral work in progress that posits alternative queer archives of Dominican belonging (oral/ performance/ visual) and contests the formal state-sponsored archives that silence and erase the lives of Black and queer Dominicans. Mónica will speak with KAYLA CARTER and BRIANNA ROYE, two Afro-Caribbean Canadian artists, to reflect on queer Caribbean archives from theory to praxis.

Join us November 27, 2019 from 5-6:30 PM in University College 253, University of Toronto
