Beschreibung: Anti-homosexual policies, hostile attitudes and violence against queer people in African societies have become an issue of international politics and western social movements as well as transnational queer movements. These issues have become visible not least through media representations. At the same time, both African and western scholars have emphasized to what extent research on sexuality in Africa has been biased by conceptions of sexuality that are deeply intertwined with colonial and neocolonial hegemonic ideologies and politics. In western social movements and academic discourses queer politics and queer theory have been developed as critiques of dominant liberal-democratic concepts of coherent subjectivities, identities and sexualities, and have increasingly become globalized in their demands for universal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (LGBTI). Such claims, however, neglect the multitude of concepts of genders and sexualities and their linkages to particular notions of identity, subjectivity and agency within different cultural settings. African researchers have both engaged with the globalised discourse of rights and developed different epistemological approaches to grasp the complex historical and current realities in Africa. The public lecture, workshop and film series aim to scrutinize to what degree the outcry and campaigns against heteronormative politics in Africa are intertwined with continuing processes of Othering and discuss queer politics and theory as situated and non-universal as well as in relation to questions of visual, fictional and artistic representations Public lecture Wednesday, 06 November 16.00-18.00: Re-membering Mwanga: Same-sex Memory and Belonging in Postcolonial Uganda (Rahul Rao, SOAS, University of London, UK) Film Programme (Cine K) Wednesday, 06 November 2013, 20.00: Getting Out (Uganda 2011) Wednesday, 13 November 2013, 18.00: Call me Kuchu (USA 2012) Wednesday, 20 November 2013, 18.00: Breaking Out of the Box (South Africa 2011) Wednesday, 27 November 2013, 18.00: Dakan (Guinea/France 1997) Seminar sessions: tba
