The CNM CRC Queer Studies Reading Group is a transdisciplinary group of scholars who have broad and diverse research interests in gender and sexuality. This group is designed to bring together graduate students and faculty at NUS and neighboring institutions to meet across and beyond disciplinary boundaries in an informal setting. Our aim is to promote intellectually rigorous discussion of and theoretical engagement with “classic” texts and cutting-edge works in queer and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) studies. In addition, we will occasionally hold writing workshops for works in progress.

This reading group is hosted by the Cultural Research Centre (CRC), a new interdisciplinary research initiative by Professor Audrey Yue in the Department of Communications and New Media (CNM) at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), National University of Singapore (NUS). For queries about the group, please contact the organizers.
