“She thought it was the misfortune of poetry to be seldom safely enjoyed by those who enjoyed it completely; and that the strong feelings which alone could estimate it truly were the very feelings which ought to taste it but sparingly." -Jane Austen

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

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).
