Radical Visions: Lesbian Feminist Dreams and Nightmares in the Long 1970s
September 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
The QCAPS September LGBTIQA+ Speaker Series event, “Radical Visions: Lesbian Feminist Dreams and Nightmares in the Long 1970s,” will be presented by Katelyn M. Campbell (she/her), a third year PhD student in the American Studies department.
What does it mean to envision a radically different world? To what extend do utopian visions rely on the existence of a corresponding dystopia? This talk engages with lesbian feminist visions of other possible worlds, utopian and dystopian, from the United States in the long 1970s.
Katelyn’s work is concerned with lesbian feminist place-making and relationships to land and settler colonialism in the 1970s. Katelyn is an alumna of Wellesley College and the 2016 Harry S. Truman Scholar from West Virginia. She lives in Chapel Hill with her feline companion, Theodore.
