Monday night three-month-old CAISO becomes a subject of Neither Heaven Nor Hell: The Realities of Sexual Minority Organizing in the Caribbean, the latest of the CLAGS (the City University of New York’s Center for Lesbian & Gay Studies) “Seminars in the City”. Participate free on the web starting at 6:00 pm. Set a reminder now!
Seminars in the City provide a public, informal but intellectually charged forum to bridge the academy and the community and make complex and often abstruse ideas engaging for nonacademicians. The current Seminar series, Axes of Desire, focuses on questions of sexual human rights in regions around the world and was created by CLAGS’s International Resource Network (IRN), a forum designed to connect and create a directory, archive/clearinghouse and networking forum for scholars, NGOs and activists interested in GLBT research, rights and culture in particular areas of the globe. A Caribbean arm of the IRN was launched in Jamaica in June, where a CAISO member represented Trinidad & Tobago.
Monday October 5’s seminar, Neither Heaven Nor Hell: The Realities of Sexual Minority Organizing in the Caribbean, is taught by Angelique Nixon, a Bahamian PhD graduate of the University of Florida currently at the University of Connecticut.
It begins at 6:00 pm. In keeping with its international focus, the seminar series will be globally accessible via live webcast on CoveritLive.com through the IRN website; and everyone is welcome to join.
