Mortar Board's Last Lecture

"Keep the Sexy/Ditch the Sexism: Undoing Gender in Everyday Life"

featuring Dr. Mimi Schippers

Date: Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Building: Josephine Louise House, Ballroom
Location: uptown campus

 Mortar Board Senior Honor Society is pleased to present Professor Mimi Schippers' Last Lecture. Each semester, Mortar Board invites a distinguished faculty member to address the Tulane community and present their hypothetical "last lecture." This semester, through her last lecture, titled "Keep the Sexy/Ditch the Sexism: Undoing Gender in Everyday Life", Professor Schippers will talk about the links between gender and sexuality and what it means to "undo" gender in everyday life and in our relationships.Mimi Schippers is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Gender & Sexuality Studies here at Tulane. Her work focuses on masculinity and femininity and how gender and sexuality shape our identities, our everyday activities, and our relationships to each other. Throughout her career, she has worked to develop theory about how to "undo" gender.  She is the author of numerous articles and publications on these topics. Her most recent book, Rockin'Out of the Box: Gender Maneuvering in Alternative Hard Rock is about how a rock music subculture of the 1990's used everyday practices and cultural norms to develop a new genre of rock music that was not sexist, racist, or heterosexist. Her current project explores how sex and intimate relationships that involve more than two people opens up interesting possibilities for "undoing" gender.  In addition to her scholarship, she publishes a widely read blog called Marxindrag, and she is a community leader in New Orleans and beyond, leading workshops on open and polyamorous relationships.
