“A Very Binary Drama”, a public dialogue by Prof. Davina Cooper with Prof. Tuija Pulkkinen (discussant) and Dr. Antu Sorainen (mod.) at Think Corner, University of Helsinki: photos and a short video clip
At the end of March 2019, the Corekin and
QueerWils Research Projects welcomed Professor Davina Cooper (king’s College,
London) at Think Corner, Helsinki University with Public Talk “A Very Binary
Drama: the Conceptual Struggle For Gender´s Future”. The talk was followed by a
discussion with Professor Tuija Pulkkinen and moderated by the Academy Research
Fellow, Dr. Antu Sorainen.
The Talk was a second part of the
“Dialogue series on The Future of Gender, Sexualities, Kinship and Inheritance”. The first Public Talk of this dialogue
was given by Professor J. Jack Halberstam (Columbia University, New York).
The Dialogue Series was popular among the
very diverse auditory consisting of scholars and students from gender studies,
art, law and other specialities. The invited thinkers raised very different
topics around the future of gender and sexuality, followed by intensive
discussions with audience members.
Below, we are happy to present the photos
and a short video from the second Public Talk given by Professor Davina Cooper
27 March 2019.
