A Talk by Mac McClelland, author of Irritable Hearts: A PTSD Love Story
Monday, October 5, 8pm
Kendall Cram, Lavin-Bernick Center

Mac McClelland is an award-winning journalist and author of Irritable Hearts: A PTSD Love Story. Though Mac gives lectures on a variety of human rights and social justice issues, this talk will address the intersection between sexual violence and mental health. We hope that Mac McClelland’s lecture can provide solidarity for students suffering from trauma and share insights on the impact of trauma and sexual violence on both individual and community levels. Sponsored by NCI and TUCP.


Comedian Tig Notaro

Comedian Tig Notaro has been included on Business Insider’s list of “50 Women Who Are Changing the World” and Rolling Stone’s list of “50 Funniest People Now.” She was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2014 for her top-selling CD Live, which captures a performance that comedy icon Louis CK described as “one of the best stand-up performances” he’s ever seen. Sponsored by NCI, TUCP, Forum Tulane, Newcomb-Tulane College Office of Cocurricular Programs, the Office of Gender and Sexual Diversity, and CPS.
