Works-in-Progress Claudia Cabello Hutt

Please join WGS Thursday, October 25th from 12:30pm to 1:30pm in Curry 342 for a Works-in-Progress with Claudia Cabello Hutt.

“Queer Networks: Latin American Women in the First Half of the 20th Century”

The project maps–thanks to mostly unpublished archival documents–a network of queer Latin American and Spanish women artists, writers, and patrons who lived away from their countries, traveled, and challenged heterosexual norms of family, sexuality, reproduction, and economic dependency. It reevaluates recognized visual artists, writers, intellectuals, and patrons such as Teresa de la Parra, Lydia Cabrera, Gabriela Mistral, Victoria Kent, and Frida Kahlo, along with figures who have been forgotten or minimized by official cultural history. Analyzing the affective, material, creative, erotic, and intellectual functions of these networks from the perspective of queer studies allows a new understanding of the conditions for cultural production and the way all cultural networks shape ideologies, poetics, intellectual projects, and political practices.
