Politics, Religion, and Sexuality
Keynote at 6pm, November 8th: Michael Warner, Professor of English, Rutgers University. Elebash Recital Hall
This conference aims to examine the appeal of conservative, politicized forms of religion on the rise today and how they are linked with sexual controversies. Through a series of panels and workshops, participants will examine how this rise of religiosity is linked to a rejection of the dominant forms of secularism, and consider what forms of radically new secularisms might provide new alternatives. Co-sponsored by The Barnard Center for Research on Women, The Center for the Study of Culture, Technology, and Work, and The Center for the Study of Women and Society at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
November 8, Thursday, 4:00 – 8:00pm. Room C203-205
