Queer Urban Geographies


We are hosting a one day conference this April 6th to explore the social dimensions of urban space as it relates to identity, sexuality, perception and community. Themes of mapping, memory, sensing and embodiment will be interrogated in order to reveal new perspectives and afford emerging possibilities.

This conference will inspire a group of students we will be working with at Parsons the New School for Design that will produce collaborative and psychogeographic maps and representations along a series of design probes.

Speakers will include: Alysia Abbott, Shana Agid, Pasqualina Azzarello, Jen Jack Geiseking, Lisa Maya Knauer, Brian McGrath & Tony Whitfield.
