Professor Ann Pellegrini will join 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.
Introduction by Katherine Fleming, NYU Provost and moderated by Carolyn Dinshaw, Dean for Humanities, NYU Arts & Science
