Abstract

Abstract:

Rather than attempting to recover African same-sex practices from the past, we probe the kinds of discursive protocols that can be implemented to uncover queer African archives, defined as methods and movements. In this process, we reconceptualize a transnational queer archive that remains vigilant against dominant taxonomies and actively connected to its political present and future. Because queer African subjects are (dis)located at the junction of multiple sociocultural traditions and geographies, we approach the queer African archive as both an elusive and dynamic site of knowledge production that calls for cross-disciplinary methodologies.
