Sandra Soto's presentation offers a queer consideration of the neoliberal paradigm of citizenship elaborated by Richard Rodriguez over the past 25 years. Whether involving his childhood suburban single-family home, his adult urban Victorian house queerly quartered into a set of apartments, or the transcendent "brown study" in which he writes, this presentation closely examines the meanings Rodriguez attributes to domestic space and architecture and finds that here racialization and sexual desire collide in ways that Rodriguez himself cannot seem to manage.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF ROOM
