The 2013 Kaufman lecture, S. Bear Bergman
November 4, 6:30
Student Activities Center, Room 225
IU South Bend
The IU South Bend campus, area campuses, and wider community are invited to the 2013 Kaufman lecture, which will be given by S. Bear Bergman, internationally acclaimed speaker on trans and GLBT issues.
The signature event each year for the Women's and Gender Studies Program is the Gloria Kaufman Memorial Lecture, which honors the founder of Women's Studies at IU South Bend, Dr. Gloria Kaufman, who was also a professor of English on our campus. Her students and friends created a foundation gift that would allow us to modestly sponsor “an annual speaker of national reputation to address a topic of interest in the field of Women’s Studies.” We’re delighted that this year’s speaker is S. Bear Bergman, who is known for witty, welcoming, and very smart performance/talks. This year's 2013 Kaufman lecture is on November 4, 6:30, 225 Student Activities Center, IU South Bend
Among S. Bear Bergman's many publications is the ground-breaking book (with Kate Bornstein), Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation (Seal Press, 2010), which has won many awards.
We anticipate an exciting evening as Bergman presents his talk:
5 Questions People Always Want To Ask The Transsexual(but shouldn't)(but I'll answer some of them anyway)
A reviewer says of this talk: Bear asks the questions that trans people constantly get asked - and then turns them inside out and upside down, showing what's behind them (and how they perpetuate certain myths) on his way to helping audiences gain some real understanding of what trans lives and experiences are all about. A funny, fast-paced, participatory hour, 5 Questions sends audience members away knowing surprisingly much more about trans people, considering how much they laughed
The talk will be followed by Q and A, and a reception with refreshments. For more information, contact Professor April Lidinsky, Director of the Women's and Gender Studies Program at firstname.lastname@example.org or 574-520-4528
