Hi! My name is Boka En.

drawing of Boka’s face

I publish and teach in Gen­der & Sexuality Stu­dies, particularly on topics such as intimacies/​sexualities/​relationships, im-/possi­bilities of emanci­patory learning spa­ces, and LGBTIQ* move­ments. My PhD project is centred around inclusions and exclusions within and across LGBTIQ*-related activism and academia, particularly in relation to knowledge politics, legiti­macy and ethical expectations. Additionally, I currently work as a Coordinator at the Gender Research Office of the University of Vienna.

I have co-founded Qwir text + design, where I work on translations, other texts and design with Michael En. I am also a founding member of the Non-Mono­gamies and Contemporary Intimacies conference series, which seeks to bring together academics, activists, artists, thera­pists/coun­sellors and (other) practitioners, as well as the working group Inter*​Trans_​Nonbinary in the Austrian Gender Studies Association. Further, I have taught at, among others, the University of Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and have facilitated workshops, including for HOSI Wien and the Austrian Students’ Union.
