Language matters. It mattered 50 years ago at the advent of Cornell University’s Women’s Studies program and in 1995 when its LGBT Studies program was established. How we — both as citizens and academics — articulate the categories on which these programs are built drives what we study and how we advocate.
What You'll Learn:
Biddy Martin, founding member of the Cornell LGBT studies program, former provost at Cornell, and currently president of Amherst College
Ezra Young ‘09, visiting assistant professor at Cornell Law School, and founding board member of the National Trans Bar Association
Naiara Bezarra-Gastesi ‘21, Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies major
Ximena Sanchez ‘22, Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies minor and author of "Transpropaganda"
The discussion will be moderated by Durba Ghosh, professor of history at Cornell and former director of FGSS.
The event will be hosted on the Ithaca Cornell University campus in room 401, Physical Sciences Building.
In-person participation is invited; virtual attendance is also welcome. Registration is required to attend.
