"From Queering Organization to Organization of Queer Theory: Moving between Organizational and Queer Theory to Develop Strategies of Queer World Making" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, Nov 20, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-06-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p259273_index.html>

Abstract: This essay is a theoretical exploration of the intersection of Queer Theory and Organizational Theory as they confront heteronormativity. Given the importance of organizations, particularly corporate organizations, in structuring social life and given the sites of intervention explored in Queer Theory, this essay initiates a much needed conversation between these two bodies of theory. Using a heuristic framework of Queer World making based on three strategies--worlds revealed, worlds a-part, and worlds among--the essay explores the intersections and gaps of these two bodies of theory. Through this framework the essay explores how diverse and even seemingly contradictory strategies of queer world making create a complex and constantly shifting formation of resistance to heteronormativty.

Abstract: This paper explores the mechanisms through which one learns gender and how is gender expressed in self-identified gender nonconforming queer female-bodied people of color. Using data collected for my senior research project, I examine perceptions of what constitutes a true member of a particular gender category and what mechanisms are seen instrumental in identity development for gender nonconforming queer female bodied people of color.

Abstract: While the use of oral history accounts has gained broader acceptability in the discipline of history, it continues to receive criticism for it’s supposed non-objectivity. Feminist theorists in cultural and science studies have taken objectivity to task, venerating Oral History as a practice better suited than most to documenting the traces of marginalized communities. Drawing from Martin Manalansan’s use of the term “messiness” for queer archives and Donna Haraway’s seminal essay “Situated Knowledges,” I suggest that the lack of objectivity in Oral History practice is in fact a crucial element of maintaining discourses of difference that initially called marginalized communities together over entangled issues of race, class, and sexuality.
In this paper I present documentation of a working class queer Pittsburgh community between 1960 and 1990 as a counterpublic whose cultural heritage undergoes significant appropriation in the 21st century during Pittsburgh’s current “Renaissance.” Through a close reading of archival materials I’ve amassed for the Pittsburgh Queer History Project (1980s videotaped performances and oral histories collected in 2014) I emphasize threads of counterpublic speech, which disrupts the language of neoliberal sexual politics where sexuality is merely a personal issue, separate and sealed from citizenship.
These instances of speech constitute histories of difference, a term I borrow from historian Joan W. Scott, which reveal the entanglement of class, race, and sexuality, suggesting that in this case, the subjects have not always already been “queer” but emerged as “queer subjects” in 20th century working class Pittsburgh. Developing a queer archival collection of these differences sidesteps the trap of calling all queer subjects de facto members of an LGBT community, emphasizing cohesion, homogenization, and normativity under the banner of liberation. Through the connection of archival footage and recent oral histories of LGBT Pittsburghers, I take a critical view of the messiness of queer subjects who can experience both gay marriage and queer bashing simultaneously.

Abstract: Since the U.S. national consciousness took notice of same-sex marriage in 1994 (with the sympathetic Hawaiian Supreme Court ruling), law-making apparatuses have been publicly battling over the possibility of same-sex marriage. Likewise, queer communities have been arguing over the value or danger of same-sex marriage. In my study, I interviewed LGBTQ women, and discovered that many perceive the practice of same-sex marriage as a life-tool rather than as an ideology. They interpret “marriage” through their “queer” perspectives, not “queer” through “marriage.” This study analyzes the participants’ queer readings of marriage as resisting colonized imaginaries of the meaning of “marriage.”

Abstract: This paper discusses the ideological and political composition of the contemporary queer community in India; specifically, how transgender identities are represented within Indian queer scholarship and queer organizations. It seeks to expand the understanding of transgenderism in South Asia beyond hijras by examining other gender variant identities, including trans masculine ones, and analyzing Indian discourses on gender and sexuality more broadly. Online publications, websites, and blogs are important to discourse around transgender visibility in India. I argue transgender/gender variant individuals face greater forms of marginalization within the contemporary queer movement in India because of the silence surrounding their gender identities.
