Richard Fung is this year’s Kessler Award recipient. He is a Toronto-based video artist, writer, theorist, and educator—a public intellectual who has pushed forward the debates about queer sexuality, Asian identity and the uneasy borderlands of culture and politics.
The Kessler Award is given to a scholar who has, over a number of years, produced a substantive body of work that has had a significant influence on the field of LGBTQ Studies. The awardee, who is chosen by the CLAGS Board of Directors, receives a monetary award and gives CLAGS’ annual Kessler Lecture.
Richard Fung’s 2015 Kessler lecture is titled Re:orientations: Shifts and continuities in Asian Canadian queer and trans identities and activism.
