Subversive Performances of Quarantine: Organizing Across Differences at the Conjuncture of Protest and the Pandemic

street performance

Principal Investigator: Jinthana Haritaworn

Funding: SSHRC Insight Grant.

Term: 2021-2026.

The project examines the contributions that multiple marginalized communities are making to help their societies survive and recover from the pandemic. It proposes that those who have experienced and, often, led intersecting movements for justice are in an ideal position to innovate critiques and responses that can benefit everyone. The objective is to explore alternative paradigms of quarantine that create greater safety for all, and to make contributions to scholarly debates on intersectionality, social movements, queer activism, archives, HIV/AIDS, polyamory, affect and mutual aid, as well as public debates on health education, police violence, transformative justice and community organizing.
