What are "objects"? Do they think? Can they dance? Do we shape them, or do they shape us and our world in profound, invisible ways? Are they our fellow citizens? Why do these questions matter? Join us as we discuss these questions and more with Graham Harman, philosopher and founder of object-oriented ontology.
QTPOC, pronounced "Cutie Pock," stands for Queer and Trans people of color. QTPOC Thursday is a space for dialogue centered around Queer and Trans people of color. We share news, stories, tea, laughter and love.

Ben Bateman, English faculty member and director for the Center for the Study of Genders and Sexualities, will discuss the themes of his new book.
Join us for an evening of performances by Cal State LA Black women, exploring the "Angry Black Woman" race-gendered myth and stereotype.
