Is Liberation Academic?

February 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

A roundtable of University faculty reflect on Gay Liberation – a movement whose story cannot be told without Stonewall – and consider to what extent liberation is an “academic” question, in both senses of the term. Among the issues to be explored: the contested legacies of Stonewall; NYU’s role, then and now; shifts and changes wrought by the last 50 years; and the promises and challenges of queer futures, in and beyond the academy.

The panel brings together leading NYU scholars from across campus.

Kwame Anthony Appiah, Professor of Philosophy and Law, NYU Arts & Science and School of Law
Caroline Dorsen (NUR ’97, NUR ’14), Assistant Professor, NYU Rory Meyers School of Nursing
A.B. Huber, Assistant Professor, NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study
Ann Pellegrini, Professor of Performance Studies and Social and Cultural Analysis, NYU Tisch School of the Arts
Kenji Yoshino, Chief Justice Warren Professor of Constitutional Law, NYU School of Law

Moderated by Carolyn Dinshaw, Dean for Humanities, NYU Arts & Science
