“The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that position be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time.” -Angela Davis

What’s Sex Got to Do with Family?

humanities center_blog

with Lisa Duggan, Elizabeth Grosz, Gayle Salamon

The Andrew W. Mellon Seminars in the Humanities

Sex is both at the core and the edge of the family life. In an era when the conceptual and political transformation of the family is most palpable on a global scale, often generating impassioned debates among those wedded or even indifferent to “the family values,” this panel seeks to explore family formations through their deepest open secrets: sex, sexuality and sexual practices.

Panelists include:

Lisa Duggan, (NYU) author of The Twilight of Equality?: Neoliberalism, Cultural Politics, and the Attack on Democracy;

Elizabeth Grosz, (Rutgers) author of Volatile Bodies: Toward a Corporeal Feminism;

Gayle Salamon, (Princeton) whose forthcoming book is titled Assuming a Body: Transgender and Rhetorics of Materiality.

Kyoo Lee, Resident Mellon Fellow at the Center for the Humanities, will moderate the conversation.

Monday, October 5th, 6:30 pm

The Graduate Center, CUNY
365 Fifth Ave (btwn 34th & 35th)
