The conference aims to look beyond this particular case in order to address the reception and influence of Stonewall in other national contexts, and the circulation, translation, importation, reappropriations, and sometimes rejection of LGBTQ communitarian practices and cultural models that originate in the United States. Does Stonewall’s notoriety “colonize” the memory of movements born outside the United States?
Does it invisibilize or even destabilize different forms of identification and resistance?
We warmly welcome all papers broadly relevant to the subject without predefining chronological and territorial limitations, as the major goal of the conference is to address questions that involve more than one research field and promote multidisciplinary dialogue and cooperation.
The papers will be published online and in a dedicated volume of Conference Proceedings.
