Queering Canada’s Built Environment

Regular session
9:00 AM, Saturday 28 May 2022 (1 hour 30 minutes)
Break (copy)   10:30 AM to 11:00 AM (30 minutes)

Queerness and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer histories are a part of architectural and historical production. Yet, these perspectives do not enjoy the same prominence as heterocentric narratives. This session aims to interrogate all aspects of gender and sexual identity related to the Canadian built environment. It seeks to scrutinize the successes and failures of architecture, architectural history, and heritage in accommodating queer and trans bodies as well as their voices. This includes studying queer Canadian spaces, the use of queer theory to analyze the built environment, and exploring how queer people and places have been excluded from the architectural canon. We invite research based in case studies, research-creation, and interdisciplinary collaborations. Presentations that approach identity and representation intersectionally are encouraged.
