About This Blog

QuIR is a network that invites scholars, artists, and activists to share and create bodies of knowledge that speak to the intersections between queerness and Italianness. In the spirit of openness and exchange this blog privileges accessibility of language. We recognise that everyone is coming to these topics of exploration from different backgrounds, and specialised linguistic choices may close off discourse and ostracise those who might have something valuable to contribute to our continued conversation. This space is meant to be as linguistically accessible and personal as possible so as to foster the exchange of ideas, theories, and experiences.

Interested in participating in the conversation? Just write us at queeritalia@gmail.com. Posts can be either in English or Italian. A regularly updated archive of our blog posts can be found below.
