Sat., June 11, 2 pm: “Queer Disclosure: Identity, Biopolitics, and Medical Practice,” gallery talk by Will Robertson, ABD (School of Anthropology, University of Arizona). Inspired by queer Latinx artist Michael Martinez’s exploration of “the function of stereotypes—how they come to inform law and the imagination of North America – in the age of state-sanctioned racial profiling,” this talk addresses the sociocultural effects of making queerness visible in medical environments. I explore the ways medical practice makes some categories of sex/gender, sexuality and race more or less visible than others through an examination of queer identity disclosure in medical settings. Drawing on the work of French social theorist Michel Foucault, I argue these acts of disclosure make queer bodies categorizable and thus more intelligible, countable and controllable.
