This piece responds to the Queer Precarities workshop and its invitations and provocations to think back through and forward to questions of class and sexuality, and as navigated by feminist geographers. I think thorough the situatedness of academic (re)productions as always occurring in time and place, when new terms and articulations may repeat or disguise. Precarity as a term of now may act to displace class as a term of then – or ‘them’ – raising enduring questions about the politics, production and interruption of knowledge. I offer up queer-class stories, including dimensions of the personal, political, affective, archival and material, encountered across place and time. I am still compelled by class as a concept and one which still often collides with queer. In this short viewpoint, I hope to show and share some of the research reflections enabled by the Queer Precarities workshop.
