University of Washington Professor, Chandan Reddy, will be speaking in a talk presented by GSPP

GSPP is presenting a talk featuring University of Washington Professor of English, Chandan Reddy, titled "Violence, Intimacy, and the Racial State: Mapping Queer and Color Critique," The event will be held at 4:00 pm in Walter Library 402.

"Violence, Intimacy, and the Racial State: Mapping Queer of Color Critique"
In this talk Chandan Reddy extends his discussion of the importance of sexuality and racial violence in the making and unmaking of modern U.S. society found in his recent book, Freedom with Violence: Race, Sexuality and the U.S. State. By focusing and deepening his discussion of the "racial state," Reddy offers a critique of liberal, leftist and Marxist theories of modern violence. Instead, Reddy argues that queer of color critique might be one critical terrain by which to develop an adequate critique of violence for our current times. Any such critique, he argues, is driven by the need to imagine a politics where violence no longer has both the first and the last 'word'.
