Formations of Queer Diaspora: Trauma and Empire
Bachelor of Arts
Department or Program
This thesis project is explores the contours of nation-state violence and the trauma-inflicted upon deviant populations transnationally. I will explore how fluid, relational experiences with violence evoke transnational diasporic formations which can begin to be actualized when we consider their postionalities to national narratives and contingencies of (be)longing. I will examine racialized deviant populations experiences of nation-state violence in the United States as well as racialized deviant populations residing in Palestinian refugee camps to exemplify the shared memory, and trauma-inflicted experiences with nation-states.
