Nagle has Queer Time in Ireland

Chris Nagle recently returned from a conference on “Queer Temporalities” held at the Humanities Institute of Ireland, University College Dublin, where he was invited to discuss the recent work of Elizabeth Freeman, whose Time Binds conceptualizes chrononormativity, temporal drag, and erotohistoriography, offering one of the most important interventions in queer theory and cultural studies of the past decade. The event was sponsored by The(e)ories: Critical Theory & Sexuality Studies, an interdisciplinary seminar series that has been convened by Noreen Giffney and Michael O'Rourke since 2002, and which has established itself as one of the leading queer theory seminars in the world.
