Statement on the TAAF Grant Read

Queer Studies

Chair: Chris A. Eng

In their 1998 collection Q&A, David L. Eng and Alice Hom articulated the critical rubric of “queer Asian American Studies,” forcibly arguing that we must be “unwilling to bifurcate our identities into the racial and the sexual.” The Queer Studies Section of AAAS will serve to collectively contemplate and organize around the productive intimacies and frictions between queer/Asian/America. We aim to generate structures of support and mentorship for scholars working at the intersection of these fields.
