Abstract

Abstract:

At the intersections of empirical research, queer theory, and women of color feminism, I explore the place of racialized, gendered, and sexualized erotics in participatory action research (PAR). Focusing on my own erotic experience of a PAR study of intimacy, HIV/AIDS, and systemic violence and regulation, I argue for queer feminist PAR that refuses to cast failures, flirtations, and misreadings as obstacles to understanding. Queer feminist PAR instead recognizes such anxious situations as visceral experiences of social difference and affinity in which researchers, participants, and collaborators assert their personhood. Ultimately, such moments facilitate queer feminist inquiry.
