Celebrate Sexuality Week at Hamilton College

By staff  |  Contact staff
Posted April 6, 1998
Anthropologist Kath Weston will be the keynote speaker for Hamilton College's Celebrate Sexuality Week. Weston will speak on What Goes Around, or Portrait of the Queer Theorist as a Young Woman, on Friday, April 17, at 4:15 p.m., in the Fillius Events Barn, Beinecke Student Activities Village. The event is free and open to the public.

Weston, who received her doctorate from Stanford University, is the author of Families We Choose: Lesbian, Gays and Kinship (Columbia University Press, 1997) and Render Me, Gender Me (1996), in which she challenges definitions and assumptions about gender by weaving her own commentary with the voices of lesbians from a variety of race and class backgrounds.

Her latest book, Long Slow Burn: Sexuality and Social Science will be published by Routledge this fall.

Currently, Weston is a visiting professor of sociology and women's studies at Brandeis University.

Celebrate Sexuality week will run from Monday, April 13 through Friday, April 17.
