David L. Eng Richard L. Fisher Professor in English
Knowledge by the Slice | Location: Cafe 58, Irvine Auditorium, 3401 Spruce Street, Philadelphia
Description:

David L. Eng and Melissa E. Sanchez will discuss the critical and social implications of queer theory with an emphasis on its value for thinking about culture and politics across broad historical and geographical contexts. By extending the scope of queer theory beyond its usual boundaries of the contemporary U.S., Eng and Sanchez propose that we can better understand and contest the gendered, racial, and economic hierarchies through which sex and sexuality have become one of the primary languages of civilization and citizenship today.

Philip Nelson Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Penn Lightbulb Cafe | Location: Wilma Theater, 265 South Broad Street
Description:

This event is free and open to the public. Register Here. Scientists often seem to be asking obscure theoretical questions. But sometimes asking such questions and doggedly following the answers leads to unexpected practical payoffs, as well as deep insights into how the world works. Physicist Philip Nelson will explore how the question “What is light?” leads to an understanding of how we see and to some powerful new ways to do so. If you have any questions about the event, please e-mail Julian Shendelman at juliansh@upenn.edu

Description:

IS IT TIME FOR AMERICANS TO DRAW INSPIRATION from movements against authoritarianism that have emerged around the world in places such as Togo – or rather, should we strive for a politics of civility and accommodation to forestall a slide into crisis and, in consequence, the very authoritarianism we fear?
