ACE hosts discussion with Professor Jin Haritaworn on new book

An evening of food and discussion with York University Professor Jin Haritaworn is planned for Nov. 23 in celebration of the book, Queer Lovers and Hateful Others: Regenerating Violent Times and Places (Pluto Press).

Queer Lovers Book Reading Nov 23The event, which runs 5:30 to 7:30pm in HNES 140, is hosted by ACE (Accessibility, Community, Equity) at York University – a student group at the University who organize events around issues of equality.

Haritaworn is a professor of gender, race and environment. In this book, queer subjects have become a lovely sight in the shadow of hateful others, who are fixed as homophobic and disposable.

Rather than an ‘in’ or ‘out’ sexual citizen, Haritaworn treats the queer lover as a transitional object that renders the shift between a welfare regime and a neoliberal regime palpable, and makes punishment and neglect appear as signs of care and love for diversity.

ACE organizes workshops, seminars and peer mentorship sessions designed to offer students social and emotional supports for success.

Light refreshments will be provided at the event, and the book will be available at the York University Bookstore.
