The Kitchen Table: Stirring the Pot – Deconstructing:  Identity, 
Sexuality, and Queerness

/March 21, 2010, 01:00 PM to 06:00 PM //(Mason Hall, Conference Room D3)/

As part of the 2010 Sojourner Truth Lecture Series, this one-day retreat 
will examine and dissect the meanings and symbols associated with 
identity, sexuality, and queerness.  We will explore the various 
characteristics assigned to women by modern-day society and deconstruct 
these stereotypes through group discussions, personal reflection, and 
artistic expression.  We envision self-discovery unfolding within the 
day’s planned activities. We hope to open up a kitchen table discussion 
to define and express a clear depiction of what makes up an identity and 
to create a dialogue for resistance.

Sign-up for the retreat in the African and African American Studies 
office – Johnson Center 240A or the Women and Gender Studies office – 
Johnson Center 240K.  Please contact Toby Jenkins, [log in to unmask]
