Queer and the Cost of Living Crisis 2023-2024 (RSE Seminar Series)

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Following the publication of Working-Class Queers. Time, Place and Politics (Pluto, 2023), this is a Series of conversations about queers in, through and beyond 'crisis times'.

Contemporary socio-economic crisis is pervasive with rising inequality, democratic erosion, and climate degradation, impacting across everyday local and global contexts. When normative neoliberal governance is itself in question, how might queer life inform State and non-State solutions to crisis? While queer life is often subject to inequality, might attentiveness to queer precarity, persistence, even progress or profit, might trigger a re-imagining of contemporary crisis?
