PennGALA & Yale GALA Present: Cutting Edge Queer Studies

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
This location is ADA accessible

Where does one find sexuality? Is sexuality possessed by humans alone, or might we discover sexuality in books and buildings, art and animals? If sexuality is locatable, why study it? A foundational (if oxymoronic) premise of LGBT Studies is that sexuality is shaped and reshaped over time, space, and relations of inequality. What are our contemporary conflicts over sexuality, and how do they travel across borders, communication technologies, and disciplines of knowledge?

Join scholars from Penn and Yale to discuss their current research projects

on sexuality, sociality, and beyond.
