Queer Disruptions I
October 13-14, 2016
Queer Disruption I, the first of the Queer Disruptions series, began a conversation with activists and artists from the U.S. and abroad who convened to explore the ways that queer studies, policies and practices theorize, transform and reimagine scholarship and generate new social possibilities. Queer Disruptions extends Columbia University’s rich tradition of debate and research on the themes relating to gender and sexuality.
Queer Disruptions II
March 1-2, 2018
Queer Disruptions II further engaged scholars, activists and artists from the U.S. and abroad in exploration of the ways that queer studies, policies and practices theorize, transform and re-imagine scholarship and generate new social possibilities.
Queer Disruptions III
February 28 - March 1, 2019
Queer Disruptions III highlighted an international slate of esteemed scholars, activists, and artists who convened to celebrate GLQ’s 25th anniversary and to reflect on the seminal conference Black Nations/Queer Nations from 1995.
The program included a concert performance by queer Colombian sound artist Ana Maria Romano on Wednesday, February 27, organized by the Department of Music and the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race at Columbia University.
