RACISM, CAPITALISM, AND SEXUAL POLITICS IN CONTEMPORARY GERMANY
June 18, 2019 - New York City

At this event, Heinz-Jürgen Voß and Smaran Dayal will introduce the newly published book “The Queer Intersectional in Contemporary Germany” (2018), featuring a number of distinguished authors, including Judith Butler, Sabine Hark, Christopher Sweetapple, Zülfukar Çetin, and Salih Alexander Wolter. The collection of essays explores global activist agendas, organizing strategies, and political discourses of the radical left, offering both theoretical and practice-based approaches. This conversation on issues of anti-racism, anti-capitalism, and queer politics in contemporary Germany will be followed by a Q&A. An Open Access version of the book is available here.
