POSTPONED to April 3: Meet Me at the Intersection of Trans and Jewish Identity

Due to the impending winter storm this afternoon and evening, we have decided to postpone Professor Ladin's talk to Tuesday, April 3, 2018. Professor Joy Ladin, the first and only openly transgender employee of an Orthodox Jewish institution, will explore the intersections and collisions of trans and Jewish identity through her personal experience and her work on theorizing trans identities in relation to religious traditions. Professor Ladin will give a reading from her memoir and two recently published poetry collections, followed by a lecture on her forthcoming book on reading God and Torah from a transgender perspective.

4:00pm Poetry & Memoir Reading - JRC (24 Stetson Court)
7:00pm Lecture - Griffin 3 (844 Main Street)

Co-sponsored by the Williams College Jewish Association, the Chaplains' Office, the Dively Committee for Human Sexuality and Diversity, the Lecture Committee, and the Oakley Center for Humanities and Social Sciences with support from the English Department and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

Tuesday, January 16 at 4:00pm
