EVENT: Queering Christ's Medieval Loincloth
5pm, Academic Block 1.03
The paper will look at weaving theology, medieval art, queer theology and the historical imaginary together provides an intellectual space of reparation for those made vulnerable by the intersections of sexuality and Christian religion.
It will touch on the problems of medievalism in this approach (with especial emphasis on the misuse of the medieval historical imaginary as demonstrated so palpably in Charlottesville), but mainly focus on how visual practice can unpick social injustices within theology and, as an expected side effect, challenge the normative canon within medieval studies as it has been taught in the English speaking and European context.
