Reading Lawrence King, Re-reading Rodney King: lecture by Gayle M. Salamon

Lawrence KingREADING LAWRENCE KING, RE-READING RODNEY KING

a lecture by Gayle M. Salamon

February 9, Wednesday
6:30 to 8 pm

Gayle M. Salamon, English, Princeton

This talk focuses on Lawrence King, the gender transgressive and gay 15-year-old who was shot to death by a classmate in his Oxnard, California middle school in 2008. Professor Salamon will discuss the ways in which aggressivity is simultaneously attributed to and directed toward queer and gender nonconforming youth, and will consider the place of race in media accounts of the murder through a revisitation of the Rodney King case.

Gayle Salamon received a Ph.D. in rhetoric from the University of California-Berkeley, where she wrote her dissertation on “Assuming a Body: Transgenderism and Rhetorics of Materiality.” She has held a research fellowship at Brown University’s Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women, and has taught a broad spectrum of courses at UC-Berkeley on the topics of embodiment and gender. Her new research project at Princeton will explore the role that proprioception and chronic pain can play in shaping a bodily sense of self. Her teaching this year will include courses on themes of “passing” in modern literature, and transgender theory. Salamon holds the new LGBT Studies Fellowship, funded by an endowment from the Fund for Reunion, the bisexual, transgendered, gay and lesbian alumni association of Princeton.

Organized by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality; co-sponsored by the NYU Gender and Sexuality Studies Program, and by Pride in Practice, a student group of the NYU Silver School of Social Work.

This event is free and open to the public.  Venue is wheelchair accessible.  If you need sign language interpretation services or other accommodations, please let us know as soon as possible.
