Gloria Anzaldúa’s Queer Decolonial Futurities: Free-Ass Subjectivities in the Borderlands
Lecture by Paola Bacchetta as part of the Curators Workshop, in English

Paola Bacchetta’s talk engages with Gloria Anzaldúa’s conceptualization of subjectivities in the Borderlands/borderlands. Departing from how she situated herself: as Chicanx and queer in geographical, historical, cultural, social, and spiritual-energetic dimensionalities, the talk considers Anzaldúa’s self-and-other conceptualizations in-fusional-relationality to other humans and to all sentient and non-sentient beings-becomings across the planet. Finally, the presentation points towards Anzaldúa’s vision of our collective futurities.
