Queer Studies in Quebec Research Group (ÉRÉQQ)

The Équipe de recherche en études Queer au Québec (Queer Studies in Quebec research group) is composed of six members of the Universities of Sherbrooke and Montreal and three collaborators. It is concerned by the literary, media, and cinematographic representations of queer bodies in Canada and Quebec produced in French and English.

Program

The objective of the ÉRÉQQ’s program is to provide the necessary institutional support for collaborative interdisciplinary and intermedial research projects for the six regular members in Quebec and the three collaborators across the country doing research in queer studies in French and English in the fields of literary studies, translation, film, and visual arts. The group aims to facilitate the sharing of theoretical and methodological tools for research on queer corporalities and identities, and assure the national and international dissemination of its members’ research. The ÉRÉQQ examines corporality in existing research in queer, gender, and sexuality studies in Quebec and Canada, and advances the theorization of the body, spatiality, and temporality from an intersectional and intermedial point of view.
