5 Questions People Always Want to Ask the Transsexual


Location: Student Activities Center - IU South Bend

The IU South Bend Women's and Gender Studies Program welcomes the public to attend a free lecture on November 4 by S. Bear Bergman, a nationally known scholar of transgender studies.  This lecture, to be held on November 4, 6:30 pm in the Student Activities Center, is the 2013 Gloria Kaufman Memorial Lecture, which honors Professor Kaufman, the founder of Women's Studies at IU South Bend.  S. Bear Bergman is known for witty and accessible presentations.  His lecture on our campus is titled:   

5 Questions People Always Want To Ask The Transsexual
(but shouldn't)
(but I'll answer some of them anyway)

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 students away knowing surprisingly much more about trans people, considering how much they laughed.

A reception will follow the lecture.
