Description

NOTICE RE: DRIVING / PARKING

Oct 13 is also parents weekend at Tufts as well, and there is also a police funeral scheduled in the area earlier in the morning. This may make driving to and parking by Tufts a challenge. Please allow for these delays as you plan your attendance.


El Emor en Tiempos de Trump: Queer of Color Criticism and Performance


This day-long workshop brings together scholars and artists working at the intersections of race, sexuality, and performance to consider the creative practices of minoritarian subjects in the pursuit of pleasure, community, health, and survival.


The workshop takes place at Breed Memorial Hall on the Tufts Medford Campus, and concludes in a performance at the Oberon Theater in Cambridge--transportation will be made available from Medford to Cambridge following dinner. All events are free, but we ask that you please register by reserving tickets so that we can arrange catering and transportation accordingly. You can still attend without registering, but it would help us greatly if you did.
