11th Annual Critiquing Culture Conference

Join us for the SOC Critiquing Culture conference. 

When: Saturday, October 7th

Where: Merten Hall (formerly University Hall), Rooms 1203 and 1204

The 11th annual conference will bring together emerging scholars committed to the analysis and critique of culture.

The theme of this year’s conference of “Social Movements and Resistance” reflects the particularly potent political moment in which we are currently situated. Papers and panels will address, critique, or otherwise analyze contemporary and historical developments of, and responses to, activism and political uncertainty. 

The final session of the conference is a keynote address from the activist Holly Kearl, whose talk will be titled, "Stopping Street Harassment through Activism, Academia, and Resistance". Holly Kearl is an expert on the topic of gender-based violence, including street harassment and sexual harassment in schools and on college campuses. She is the founder of the nonprofit organization Stop Street Harassment and a consultant for organizations like the United Nations, Aspen Institute, the U.S. State Department, the OpEd Project and YOU.
