Badia Fiesolana

This workshop will focus on queerness and its position against dominant modes of thought, in the framework of social, political, and affective discomfort.

The conference Queer Dis-eases: Disruptive Histories, Politics, and Bodies aims to create a pluralistic space for academics, activists, and artists to come together and reflect on how queerness generates discomfort and how this could be harnessed as a productive political tool for collective action. During two days, speakers from different disciplines and coming from all over the world will look at four main themes from a queer perspective: health and illness, ecologies and bodies, affects and minds, networks.
