Please join Richmond’s Research Center for the Study of the State, Power and Globalisation for a discussion of BA International Relations alumn Dr Taylor Riley’s new book: Queer Word- and World-Making in South Africa. The event, which will be held on Thursday 17 November at 5pm, will take place in Classroom 3, Building 12, Chiswick Park, Richmond American University London, W4 5AN.
Focusing on everyday experiences of sexuality in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal, Dr Riley considers personal narratives and other queer artefacts to shed light on linguistic and performative strategies of resistance, referred to as queer word- and world-making.
Taylor Riley is a postdoctoral research fellow in anthropology at University College London. She received her PhD from BIGSAS, University of Bayreuth (2018) for research on sexuality and knowledge in South Africa. She has taught courses in anthropology and in gender and sexuality studies in Germany and the US, most recently at the University of California Irvine.
