Queer Visual Culture – Spring 2017 presents thesis projects of three emerging scholars who are working in the field of architecture, visual culture, race, gender studies, and queer theory. Jamee Crusan (CCA) will present The Double Edge of Visibility and Invisibility: Cassils and Queer Exhaustion. Jennifer Moreno (SFAI) will present Queer Activism in San Diego: Visual Politics of Walls, Closets and Their Hauntings. Jess Dorrance (UC Berkeley) will present An Archive of Toxic Feelings: The Visual and Embodied Politics of Queer-Feminist Historiography. The program will be moderated by Professor Sampada Aranke (San Francisco Art Institute).

Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) brings together recent graduates in the disciplines of Fine Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Environmental Design disciplines whose work explores gender identity and issues relevant to queer and trans people of color with Bay Area non-profit, community based arts and social service organizations for a series of conversations that will bring community perspective to their work and develop a network of queer scholars and community partners to foster collaborative research, workshops and cultural events that will enrich the lives of the queer community. This program is being organized by the Queer Cultural Center and Creative Labor. This QCCA event is co-sponsored by The Queer Cultural Center, the Graduate Program in Visual and Critical Studies and the Provost’s Office.

Queer Conversations on Culture and the Arts brings together locally and nationally renowned artists, writers, filmmakers, and scholars for a series of conversations to discuss a broad range of LGBTQI topics in the humanities, architecture, design, and the arts. QCCA is an on-going collaboration between the Queer Cultural Center, California College of the Arts, and U.C. Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design.
