October 28, 2022

Hybrid format, Swift Lecture Hall, 1025 E 58th Street, Floor 3 and online (Zoom webinar information forthcoming)

This one-day conference concludes a series of workshops, initiated in May 2022, that addresses the current wave of anti-gender and anti-LGBTQ+ politics in the US and around the world. The October 28 capstone event will bring together leading scholars to discuss the political, legal, symbolic, discursive, organizational, and financial entanglements that structure and drive this dynamic political movement. Among our panelists is Srimati Basu (University of Kentucky), who will be present on the anti-feminist men’s rights movements in India. It is co-organized by Roy Kimmey, PhD candidate in History, and Michaela Appeltová, Teaching Fellow in the Social Sciences, with faculty sponsorship from Susan Gal and Tara Zahra. This event is co-sponsored by CEERES and COSAS.
