QUEERING THE HAIN – DECOLONIALIZING MOURNING
An invitation to gather and ask the unthinkable
May 23, 2019, 10-15
Venue: Linköping University: Campus Norrköping.
Building: Kopparhammaren, Norra Grytgatan, Entrance 10A, Floor 2, room KO22.
Registration: Please register with name, address/affiliation and e-mail, at the latest May 20, to email@example.com (max 20 participants)

The workshop will take as a point of departure an introduction to the Hain, as it appears in the anthropological/ethnological literature, then move through stories told by descendants of those performing the last Hain in the early 20th century, and to the implied layers of “lostness” and the task of translation and decolonializing.
