Sweetapple, Christopher Michael, U. of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA - To aid research on 'Convergence and Cleavae: Queer Muslims at the Instersectin of Exclusion and Inclusion in Contemporary Europe,' supervised by Dr. Jacqueline Urla

Preliminary abstract: In Germany, as elsewhere in contemporary Europe, sexual politics and the politics of immigration have converged around the figure of the Muslim. Homophobia has been actively constructed as inherent to Islam and thus Muslims, and in the process homosexual citizens and Muslim immigrants have come to be understood as mutually oppositional categories of identity. My research troubles the discursive habit of segregating queer from Muslim through an investigation of subjects who dwell at the intersection of rising Islamophobic exclusion and queer recognition.

Preliminary abstract: My research project focuses on the Jewish revival movement that emerged in the Soviet Union between the 1960s and the late 1980s. This movement was virtually invisible in public space, and the state periodically persecuted its members. To avoid the gaze of the Soviet state, Jews clandestinely gathered in private apartments, where they collectively studied Hebrew, sacred Jewish texts, Jewish history and tradition, celebrated Jewish holidays, and even published samizdat (unofficial) Jewish magazines. Some of them decided to practice Judaism daily.
