Jack Halberstam: The Queer Art of Failure

26 October 2011
17:00to19:00

Jack Halberstam will discuss her new book, The Queer Art of Failure, published by Duke University Press in the autumn of 2011, at a Centre for Cultural Studies Research symposium on 26 October 2011. Author of Female Masculinity and In a Queer Time and Place, and also keynote speaker at the Cultural Studies Now conference held at UEL in 2008, Halberstam returns to explore alternatives to the conventional success stories of heteronormative capitalist society and to also ask what “low theory” might contribute to Cultural Studies. Copies of The Queer Art of Failure will be available to purchase at the event alongside some of Halberstam’s earlier books.
