„Antke Engel has pioneered a new kind of structure for higher education. By building her institute around “Queer Studies” and by setting up a kind of counter-disciplinary site, Engel leads the way into a new understanding of knowledge production. The Queer Institute, by all accounts, was inaugurated in style – the speeches, the workshops and most of all the parties have created a material base for the original forms of sociality and learning that The Queer Institute both imagines and implements. I cannot wait for the next event!“
