Jennifer Doyle: “Harassment & the Unravelling of the Queer Commons”
May 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
| Humanities 1, Room 210
This talk will attempt to speak to the difficulty of this moment for queer/feminist theorists—for teachers, students and staff who live and work with harassment, with forms of misogyny that are so embedded in professional life as, in some ways, to feel synonymous with it. This work is a return to a scene many of us have never left, but which critical formations tend to represent as having passed: super-sexual political writing calling for openness against an intolerable future.
Jennifer Doyle is a Professor of English at UC Riverside.
