Zoom Talk: queer legacies of the queerqueen


Please join the Gender and Sexuality Research Cluster (GSRC) at the National University of Singapore for an upcoming Zoom talk titled “queer legacies of the queerqueen” by Professor Claire Maree on September 7, 2023, 2-3:30pm (GMT +8).

queer legacies of the queerqueen
The voice of the queerqueen has been recorded, transcribed, edited and written into popular Japanese culture in visually complex multimodal texts that recontextexutalise and resemiotize image and language. Practices of „language labour“ (re)trace the queerqueen style and manufacture it as linguistic excess. This presentation will consider how the legacies of (re)cycled queerqueen styles which are staged as „in excess“ of respectable norms impact on discourses of rights for LGBTIQA+ individuals in contemporary Japan.
