Jack Halberstam Receives a Columbia-PSL Global Humanities Grant

Jack Halberstam, director of the CSSD working group Queer Theory: Here, Now, and Everywhere, has received a Columbia-PSL global humanities grant to organize a transnational conference on sexuality and gender theory. The conference, which will take place at Reid Hall in Paris, will address the need to overcome a singular model of gender through cross-cultural interchange and collaboration. The goal is to start a conversation about setting a new path for queer studies, in which ideas flow between cultures and a global model of sexuality studies is displaced by one characterized by diversity of thought.
