Taking as its starting point several works that were published or released in 1997, the year of the Hong Kong Handover, this talk will use recent developments in queer theory to reexamine the implications of the Handover.

Carlos Rojas is Professor of Chinese Cultural Studies; Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies; and Arts of the Moving Image at Duke University, and his research focuses on issues of gender and visuality, corporeality and infection, and nationalism and diaspora studies.
