Conference: Queering (Post-)Yugoslavia and (Post-)Yugoslav Queerness, 17.03.2023, Vienna

Univ. of Vienna; Miranda Jakiša & Aleksandar Ranković (Web)

Zeit: 17.03.2023, 14:00 Uhr
Ort: Institut für Slawistik, Campus der Univ. Wien, Spitalg. 2, Hof 3, Seminarraum 1

The conference aims at bringing together two conceptual frameworks which share the absence of a fixed object: two communities without a state and beyond statehood, experiences of marginalization and violence, engagement with fluidity and a constant flux of identifications.
What do queerness and (Post-)Yugoslavia have in common? In what ways does queerness transcend the (Post-)Yugoslav condition, and how does this condition influence queer lives and queer arts in return? Can we critically think about (Post-)Yugoslavia through and with queer experiences? And how can we re-think queerness through (Post-)Yugoslav experiences?
