“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

Bettina Aptheker @ NYU: Queering the History of the American Left: Who “Counts” as Radical?

February 4th, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
20 Cooper Square, 4th Fl

Presented by the Department of Social & Cultural Analysis, New York University
Spring 2009 SCA SPEAKER SERIES

Bettina Aptheker is Professor of Feminist Studies at UCLA and Spring 2010 Visiting Scholar, Department of Social and Cultural Analysis, NYU

This presentation is based on a project in progress to bring together the queer and the radical left into a historical dialogue, with particular attention to those in and around the Communist Party between the 1940s and the 1980s. In part this is a continuation of an autobiographical journey and, in part, it is about bringing these histories into a unified, if contested and conflicted space, with attention to an intersectional analysis of race, class, gender, and sexuality.

Her most recent book is a memoir, Intimate Politics: How I Grew Up Red, Fought for Free Speech and Became A Feminist Rebel (Seal Press, 2006).
