The Annual Queer Theory Lecture


Matt Brim

This talk contributes to the understanding of queer studies as a class-based knowledge project. Brim traces the relationship between queer academia's aspirational mood and the increasing extraction and relocation of queer faculty and students from working-class places to elitist ones. What do such simultaneous acts of community building and busting mean for the field? Brim suggests that within this complicated dynamic the need-and the opportunity-to bolster cross-class queer studies relationships comes into focus.
