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], for additional information.
