Dr Hongwei Bao presents talk on queer theory at the University of Warwick

Hongwei Queer Talk
Dr Hongwei Bao presented a talk titled ‘Translating Queer Theory and Imagining LGBT Identities in China’ at the University of Warwick on 28 October 2018.  In the talk, Dr Bao traced the genealogy of how queer theory has been introduced into the mainland Chinese context through academic writings, artworks, digital video films and social activism since the early 2000s. He emphasised the role of translators in creating ideas and the performative role of these ideas in shaping sexual identities and social activism in contemporary China.
