Panel: "Civil Rights Discourse in Post-Stonewall LGBTQ Texts"
Areas: Women's and Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, 20th and 21st C American Literature, Interdisciplinary
Northeast Modern Language Association 2014 Convention (April 3-6, 2014 in Harrisburg, PA)
LGBTQ activist discourse often turns to the black civil rights movement as model and analogy. This panel explores post-Stonewall LGBTQ texts working both within and against civil rights discourse. What are the dangers and advantages in using “like race” arguments in LGBTQ activism? How have the successes and failures of the black civil rights movement informed contemporary LGBTQ texts? Papers addressing texts from a variety of genres and media are welcome.
