November 9: Exploring Gay Men’s Life Experiences at the Intersections of Gender, Sexuality & Class

a Brown Bag Lunch Talk with Gavin Jack

November 9, Friday
12:30 to 1:45 pm

Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality
41-51 East 11th Street, Room 741

(wheelchair access at 85-87 University Place)

Gavin Jack, CSGS Visiting Scholar, La Trobe University, Australia

It is often suggested that the intersection of social class and sexuality is under-researched. That said, a closer look at multidisciplinary LGBTQ scholarship (covering inter alia gay and lesbian history and urban studies, sociology and social work, subcultural analysis, literature and literary criticism) does surface an appreciation and critical inquiry into the manner in which gay male life reproduces and is organized along class divisions, closely entwined with those of gender, race and nation. The talk will outline and discuss work-in-progress on synthesizing this scholarship and translating it into a research project on gay men’s life experiences at the intersections of gender, sexuality and class. I will focus on the insights and shortcomings of the work I have read thus far, highlighting key theoretical or conceptual questions for open discussion and reflection. I will also present an outline of some tentative steps towards an empirical study based on life history methodology.

Bring your lunch — we’ll provide beverages and dessert!

Gavin Jack is Professor of Management in the Business School, La Trobe University, Australia. He has a Bachelor’s degree in International Business & Languages and a PhD in international management/organization studies from Heriot-Watt University, Scotland. Located within critical management studies, Gavin’s interdisciplinary research interests include: the application of postcolonial theory and analysis to the study of management and marketing; critical, cultural understandings of international, cross-cultural and diversity management; theoretical analyses and ethnographic studies of consumption and consumer culture; more recent interests in the intersection of social class and sexuality.

This event is free and open to the public.  Wheelchair access is at 85-87 University Place.
