About this event
In the stretch between sunset and sunrise, whole worlds come into being…
Kemi Adeyemi and Kareem Khubchandani discuss their new volume Queer Nightlife (University of Michigan Press, 2021). We will explore house parties, nightclubs, and bars as improvisatory spaces of queer and trans of color performance and theorize aesthetics, art, sound, and dance as world-making projects.
Kemi Adeyemi is the 2020 CLAGS Fellowship winner for her book Feels Right: Black Queer Women’s Choreographies of Belonging
Kareem Khubchandani is the 2019 CLAGS Fellowship winner for his book Ishtyle: Accenting Gay Indian Nightlife
This event will have CART captioning and ASL interpretation. It will be live-streamed on the CLAGS Facebook page and recorded for future viewing on the CLAGS youtube page.
