UK: Public Lecture: Prof. Judith Butler on 'Sexual Politics'
Without denying that clear tensions exist between religious traditions that condemn and forbid homosexuality and progressive sexual movements that tend to promote exclusionary conceptions of the secular, the lecture focuses on the importance of conceptions of cultural translation, antagonism, and the critique of state coercion to consider what 'critical coalition' might mean for religious and sexual minorities.
Judith Butler is Maxine Elliot Professor at the University of California, Berkeley. Chetan Bhatt is a professor in the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths.
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For more information: email email@example.com or call +44 020 7955 6043.
