May 23 Anjali Arondekar: “Orienting Margins: Sexuality’s Geopolitics”

Histories of sexuality routinely mediate geopolitical
difference(s) through the narrative
forms of marginality, disenfranchisement and
loss. What happens if we shift our attention
from the reading of sexuality as marginality
to understanding it as a site of vitalized
abundance–even futurity?
