Something out of the usual run of things

For the Columbians amongst you, this Friday (I cannot tell you exactly what it will be like, but it should be interesting!):
SPEAKING THE BODY
An Interdisciplinary Conversation

Featuring:
Jenny Davidson, English and Comparative Literature
Geraldine Downey, Psychology
Coco Fusco, Spanish and Portuguese
Eugenia Lean, East Asian Languages and Cultures
Beth Povinelli, Anthropology

The speakers will address a range of topics, including the significance of the body as a site of meaning, especially as it relates to embodied subjects; the body's potential for interdisciplinary analysis; the boundaries of the body; the role of medical discourse and technology in their conceptualization of the body; and whether the human body is always already gendered (if de-gendered or transgendered bodies are considered "human").

Organized by the IRWaG Graduate Colloquium

WHEN: Friday March 7th, 1:00 - 3:00 PM

WHERE: 614 Schermerhorn

Please join us for this unique opportunity to see interdisciplinary
dialogue in action! A reception will follow in 754 Schermerhorn
Extension.
