Decolonial and Queer of Color Archiving: Engaging Concealed Pasts
Transnational symposium organized by
Sandeep Bakshi (LARCA, Université Paris Cité) and Paola Bacchetta (University of California, Berkeley)
Wednesday 20 April 2022

Relaying and relying upon the work of the Decolonizing Sexualities Network in the last decade that has now become the living queer of color archive, the symposium extends the meaning inherent in working with the archive of queer of color worldmaking beyond the network’s living archive. It aims to invite prominent decolonial and queer of color archives scholars and place them in conversation with queer of color archivists/activists in the global North (US, France).

The key question that underpins the symposium is: How do queer of color and decolonial queer archiving alter the way in which we think of archiving as a practice of preservation of history?
All participants will incorporate the crux of the question in their presentation/conversation.

The symposium comprises one section of the larger project on decolonizing queer knowledge that is co-run by Professor Paola Bacchetta and Dr Sandeep Bakshi under the aegis of the Decolonizing Sexualities Network
