Dr. Ghislaine Pussait’s Homobonobo Project: a performance by Shelly Mars

March 1, Thursday
6 to 7:30 pm

Shelly Mars, solo performance artist

followed by a discussion led by:
Una Chaudhuri, English, New York University
Carolyn Dinshaw, English and Social & Cultural Analysis, New York University

A multi-media presentation in the style of a keynote lecture by the self-important Dr. Pussait, a Belgian ethologist and Bonobo expert.

The piece playfully questions the limits of scientific approaches to understanding animal (and human) behavior.

Queer studies meets Animal Studies meets Posthumanism to take on the imperial history of scientific racialization.
