3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

A workshop with Dr. Arlene Stein on doing research on sexuality and LGBTQ issues. On Friday, Nov 9, the LGBTQ/Sexualities Research Cluster will host a workshop and discussion with Dr. Arlene Stein, Associate Professor of Sociology at Rutgers University.

Arlene Stein is Associate Professor of Sociology and is on the Women's/Gender Studies Graduate Faculty at Rutgers University. She is the author of three books and the editor of two edited collections on sexuality and gender. Among them is The Stranger Next Door: The Story of a Small Community's Battle Over Sex, Faith, and Civil Rights (Beacon), an ethnographic study of a conservative campaign against gay/lesbian rights and its impact upon one community. The book won the American Anthropological Association's Ruth Benedict Award and an Honor Award from the American Library Association. Sex and Sensibility: Stories of a Lesbian Generation (University of California), an earlier work, examines the impact of feminism on women's sexual identities. A collection of her essays, Shameless: Sexual Dissidence in American Culture (NYU), was published last year. She received the Simon and Gagnon Award for career contributions to the study of sexualities, given by the American Sociological Association.

Co-sponsored by The Department of Sociology, The Center for Women's and Gender Studies, The Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, The Office of Graduate Studies, and The Gender and Sexuality Center.
