“Queerness as Mesh, Queerness as Mess”
This talk is about the possibilities and limits of sociality and affinity in a household of six undocumented queers of color living in New York City. Amidst the precarity of being “illegal” and surviving economic instability, these queers search for and establish affective openings that conjure moments of fabulous world-making.

Co-Sponsors: Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies, Intercollegiate Feminist Center and the American Studies program, Asian American Resource Center, 7C AAPI Advisory Board (AdBoard),Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts (HMC), Anthropology Department (POM),Pacific Basin Institute (POM), and Gender and Women’s Studies Program (POM).
