Next Up!

Next up! is a regular feature on Sundays, showcasing HWC (and beyond) events in the coming week. Use the “Comments” section to provide updates and additions!

Monday, 3/22: Hybrid Committee Meeting (3pm, Rm 604)

Tuesday, 2/23: PTK Transfer Fair, (2pm-on, Rm 1115)

Wednesday, 3/24: Panel Discussion: Pornography, Women, & Sex (2-4pm, Rm 1001). Feminist philosopher Robin Morgan put it this way: “Pornography is the theory, rape is the practice,” tying together two familiar (enough) aspects of American culture–one tacitly, if not openly accepted and one, ostensibly, despised. Yet, in the last ten years, pornography has become more readily available and more widely consumed without comparable increases in sexual violence against women, and some feminist philosophers have gone as far as to say that it is through the embracing of their sexuality–in pornographic contexts or otherwise–that women gain their fullest claims to equality. Hosted by Dave Richardson’s Social and Political Philosophy class, a panel featuring Armen Sarrafian (Art), Allin Young (Humanities), and Serpent Libertine (Sex Workers Outreach Program of Chicago), all fascinating people, will discuss issues related to pornography and its effects (objectification? empowerment?) for women and men and sex in general.

One thought on “Next Up!

  1. I have to teach on Thursday afternoons so I’d like to echo the above regarding the union meeting:

    “Will somebody out there please tell them about The Harold Lounge, and tell them we’d love to have some union representation?”
