The ACP is proud to co-sponsor this year's David L. Kubal Memorial Lecture, delivered by Dr. Lauren Berlant of the University of Chicago. Dr. Berlant's work has made indispensable contributions to our understanding of affect and the relationships between subjectivity, community, and the political. Please join us for her talk, "On Being in Life without Wanting the World: On Biopolitics and the Attachment to Life," which serves to punctuate our 2013-14 research theme, "Cultures of Risk: Chance and Precarity."
Let’s face it. Outer appearance matters to some people. The way that we dress often expresses the way that we feel about ourselves, in a particular moment. But for some, clothes can feel like prison. Join the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center for a Fashion Drag Show, and watch models who defy gender norms and express themselves without apology.
