Heather Love: “The Stigma Archive”
January 19, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Professor Love, author of Feeling Backward: Loss and the Politics of Queer History (Harvard, 2007), is at the Stanford Humanities Center this year. She is working on a book on the source materials for Erving Goffman’s Stigma: On the Management of Spoiled Identity (1963). Stigma serves as a methodological case study for thinking through the challenges and possibilities of comparative studies of social exclusion.
