Distinguished Lecture Series

Each spring, the Department of Women's & Gender Studies sponsors a Distinguished Lecture.

Anne McClintock

Tuesday, April 8 at 7 p.m., Trout Auditorium (Vaughan Literature Bldg)

This year we welcome Anne McClintock, Simone de Beauvoir Professor of English and Women's and Gender Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison. She will discuss, "US Empire, Paranoid Masculinity, and the Gendered Dynamics of Torture."

Professor McClintock is the author of Imperial Leather: Race, Gender and Sexuality in the Colonial Contest, which was republished online by the ACLS E-Humanities Book Project. McClintock has written short biographies of Olive Schreiner and Simone de Beauvoir and a monograph on madness, sexuality and colonialism called Double Crossings. She has co-edited Dangerous Liaisons with Ella Shohat and Aamir Mufti, as well as two special issues of Social Text: one titled "Sex Workers and Sex Work," and the other titled "Queer Transexions of Race, Nation and Gender."
