R. Benedito Ferrão will present “Twenty-Five Years after Dominic D’souza: Of (De)Coloniality and (Un)Queer Reclamations” at the UW-Madison Annual Conference on South Asia’s Feminist Pre-Conference: Gender, Sexuality, and Occupation, on 26 October, 2017.

Abstract:
On this, the twenty-fifth anniversary of Dominic D’souza’s death, and in light of the global shift away from AIDS-activism and towards marriage equality as the defining factor of current gay identity, this presentation will consider how the reclamation of D’souza as a Goan figure may renew the possibility of decolonial queer activism in South Asia.
