"'We're Not Hiding But We're Invisible': Race, Fugitivity, and Queer-Feminist Futures in the Prison State.”

Professor Stephen Dillon
Assistant Professor of Queer Studies
Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts

Thursday, Janaury 18th
4:30 pm - 6 pm

Dillon holds a B.A. from the University of Iowa and a Ph.D. in American Studies with a minor in Critical Feminist and Sexuality Studies from the University of Minnesota.

His scholarly interests include queer studies, race and white supremacy, critical prison studies, transgender studies, American studies, critical theory, and feminist studies. His research focuses on the racial, gender, and sexual politics of the late twentieth-century U.S. prison system. In particular, he is interested in the forms of knowledge produced by post-1960s prisoners and activists as they confronted a new state form he calls the “neoliberal-carceral state.”

Part of the 2017-18 Women’s Studies and Feminist Research Visiting Speakers’ series.
