Brown-bag lunch with Janet Jakobsen
Thu, October 22, 2009 • 11:45 AM - 1:15 AM • Chicano Culture Room, Texas Union 4.206
The Center for Women's & Gender Studies & LGBTQ/Sexualities Research Cluster is sponsoring a brown-bag lunch with Janet Jakobsen, Director of Barnard College's Center for Research on Women, one of the preeminent sites for feminist scholarship:
Rather than giving a lecture, Professor Jakobsen will be available for informal presentation and discussion of the Center's recent project to articulate a combined vision of sexual and economic justice, as well as her administrative work as Director of the Barnard Center for Research on Women, where her activities include organizing the annual Scholar and Feminist conference and editing The Scholar and Feminist Online. She is the author (with Ann Pellegrini) of Love the Sin: Sexual Regulation and the Limits of Religious Tolerance, as well as many other books. See below for further biographical information.
Please join us for this exciting opportunity!
