José Esteban Muñoz Fund

José Esteban Muñoz Fund Details » Donate Online

The late performance theorist José Esteban Muñoz once described the limits experienced by minoritarian knowledge producers (including, especially, scholars of color) in the academy thus: Within majoritarian institutions the production of minoritarian knowledge is a project set up to fail. Mechanisms ensure that the production of such knowledge ‘misfires’ as it is misheard, misunderstood, and devalued.... The need to produce minoritarian knowledge is a mode of utopian performativity, a certain striving that is both an ideality and a necessity. Recognizing this dynamic and this imperative, the Executive Committee of ASTR has established a competitive, funded, three-year working session in order to support, promote, and feature the production of research by and about people of color at ASTR.
