Steffen Knaupp talk on "Lola and Bilidkid" rescheduled for April 16
Queering the Family, Queering the Nation State discusses Kutluğ Ataman's 1999 film, in Carlton Commons at 3:30 p.m.
This talk investigates family as a way to negotiate the tension between ethnic, sexual and national identity by showing how in 20th century German film, representations of sexuality and family intersect. Discussing Kutluğ Ataman's "Lola and Bilidikid," Kaupp will argue that fictional narratives engage with post-45 German history through a queering of traditional family structures.
Steffen Kaupp received his doctorate from Carolina-Duke Graduate Program in German Studies. He is currently an assistant teaching professor at the University of Notre Dame.
