Queer Devices: A European Network for Queer Anthropology Workshop

11 – 13 September 2015, Central European University, Budapest

The European Network for Queer Anthropology (ENQA) is pleased to announce its first workshop. The aim is to offer a space for participants to present and explore work foregrounded in anthropological epistemologies and ethnographic methodologies, and which has sexual and gender diversity and difference, broadly conceived, as a central theme. In so doing the workshop will open up a discursive and reflexive space in which to critically engage with and further debates, especially by providing an argument for (1) the importance of both ethnographically grounded and post-ethnographic, theoretically inflected approaches in queer studies, and (2) of relativizing ‘Western’ paradigmatic knowledge regimes in the study of gender and sexual diversity.
