Queer Feelings, Emotional Resistances

September 2, 2019

Presented as part of the Imagining Queer Europe Then and Now conference, this panel included the two presentations, followed by a discussion moderated by Roberto Filippello. Maria Bühner (Leipzig University) presented, ‘“I thought I was the only one that felt that way”: The 1970s as a turning point for the ways to feel about homosexuality in East Germany?’. Javier Cuevas del Barrio (Universidad de Málaga) presented, ‘Queer Theory, Visual Culture, and “emotional resistances” in Torremolinos (Spain) during the Sixties and Seventies’. The panel took place on the second day of the conference, on March 15, 2019, at Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. Abstracts of Bühner and Cuevas del Barrio’s presentations can be read here.
