Description

Queer Returns returns us to the scene of multiculturalism, diaspora and queer through the lens of black expression, identity and the political. The essays question what it means to live in a multicultural society, how diaspora impacts identity and culture and how the categories of queer and black and black queer complicate the political claims of multiculturalism, diaspora and queer politics. These essays return us to foundational assumptions, claims and positions that require new questions without dogmatic answers.
