Description

The Graduate Center, CUNY and the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) will be presenting The Homonationalism and Pinkwashing Conference over two days, from April 10-11. This historic event will feature a varied group of speakers representing various countries, ethnicities, nationalities, genders, ages, communities, universities, and academic fields in discussion around a new arena of thought, specifically the concepts of Homonationalism and Pinkwashing. These concepts have been addressed by a number of scholars of all racial, cultural, and religious backgrounds, revealing that Homonationalism and Pinkwashing are pressing, urgent, and inspiring topics in international academic work. This conference, which sold out six months before its date, is already significant, respected and pioneering in burgeoning arenas of academic study and inquiry.
