Lunch & Learn: Queer(ing) Italo-Québécois Literature
Not much has been published on queer Italo-Québécois writing, despite the growing body of English-language literature by LGBTQ+ Italian-Quebecers, who have decided to write their own stories. In this Lunch & Learn, Dr. Licia Canton will present her QUESCREN Working Paper “Queer(ing) Italo-Québécois Literature”, where she aims to rectify this absence and encourage conversations about identity, diversity and inclusion.
Time: 12 PM EDT – 1 PM EDT
