Queer Multilinguality and Embodied Speech

December 2022 - August 2023

The workshop series "Queer Multilinguality and Embodied Speech" provides the ground for a participatory, multilingual and international issue of the Journal InterAlia. A Journal for Queer Studies. This issue is scheduled to appear at the end of 2023 under the title The Multilingual Issue. untranslatability, linguistic multiplicity, embodied speech. Four thematic workshops will bring together contributors and those interested to explore and discover queer forms of speech and expression. The aim is to bring together poetic, artistic and academic contributions that promote queer multilinguality in an experimental way. The workshops activate different first languages, gestures, signs and facial expressions, queer slang and diverse Englishes. How can this be translated into journal contributions that express non-binary gender, queer ways of living, pleasure and desire?
