QUEER INTIMACIES - CAMILLE ROBCIS "Liberte, Egalite, (Hetero)sexualite: The French Gay Marriage Debates"

Description:
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies Program invites you to join us for this second event of our annual spring lecture series, this year themed "Queer Intimacies." Camille Robcis is Assistant Professor of History at Cornell University. She is a 2013-2014 Society for the Humanities Faculty Fellow. Her recently published book, The Law of Kinship: Anthropology, Psychoanalysis, and the Family in Twentieth-Century France, examines how and why French judges and legislators turned to structuralism--and more specifically, to some of the most difficult and abstract concepts of Claude Lévi-Strauss and Jacques Lacan--to reassert the centrality of the heterosexual family in political debates around bioethics, same-sex unions, single-parent households, family names, surrogacy, and adoption. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 25, 2014
