Joshua Chambers-Letson: One More Try

Monday, April 10, 2023 | 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Seigle Hall, 204
Harry & Susan Seigle Hall

One More Try (Or, Teacher, There Are Things That I Don’t Want To Know)

The reading group “Cruising Utopia in the 2020s” invites you to a lecture by Joshua Chambers-Letson—a return to the dynamics of melancholia and reparation in queer theory, a meditation on the art of living with grief, and another (final) attempt to reconcile with a teacher who told you goodbye, goodbye, goodbye…

Joshua Chambers-Letson is Professor of Performance Studies and Asian American Studies at Northwestern University and author of After the Party: A Manifesto for Queer of Color Life and A Race So Different: Law and Performance in Asian America. They are presently the 2022-2023 Thinker in Residence with the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation.

Sponsored by the Department of Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity, and the Center for the Humanities.
