The Guilty Feminist, Kaytee Stewart

1pm @ Faunce Memorial Room (229)

Come have lunch (Pizza Pier) and chat with Kaytee Stewart, who will be facilitating a conversation with students around the idea of “feminist guilt”.  

Kaytee Stewart is heavily involved in queer and feminist activism.  Her research focus has been on expanding the meaning and application of feminism in policy (particularly around transgender and genderqueer, gender-variant inclusivity and fluidity through disrupting binaried understanding of gender as the predicate for rights and protections) but beyond her academic focus, she has become increasingly interested in how we define, police and judge what can count as feminism and who can embody, live out and identify with feminist ideology. She aims to explore and understand the concept of feminist guilt, as we navigate a world with complex expectations for us as gendered people and feminists.

“Sex, Shame and Love”Charlie Glickman

7pm @ List 120

Shame influences and shapes sexuality for almost everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, and individual desires. If we want to overcome and move past sexual shame, we need to understand how it works and how it affects us. Charlie Glickman PhD has been studying and exploring sexual shame for over a decade and he’ll unpack how it works. Developing shame resilience makes it easier to deal with this difficult but inevitable emotion, along with jealousy, loss, and fear. It also helps us create more space to give and receive love, explore our authentic selves, and build the relationships that suit us. Through both presentation and facilitated discussion, you’ll find new ways to keep shame from getting in the way and create the relationships that work for you! For more info about Charlie, please visit his website, on Facebook , or on Twitter.
