Positioning Strategies In Queer – Feminist Hip – Hop

We are glad to welcome the beautiful soul Benedict Weskott to our this years discourse program with a presentation and discussion on his research on positioning strategies in queer-feminist hip-hop.
Benedict discovered his love for music and the conversations about it at an early age. His studies of Social Science in Bochum ended with the thesis: Queerfeminist Hiphop as Self-Empowered Appropriation of a Cultural Field – Qualitative Analysis of Three Positioning Strategies in German-speaking Hip-hop. Currently, he works in music journalism for various media, as a drag queen and DJ, and gives workshops on gender and sexual diversity.
