Go On! "All in the Family?"

(In addition to the post above, IntLawGrrls alumna Ruthann Robson contributes this Go On! guest post)

This Thursday and Friday, March 25 and 26, the Graduate Center at my home institution, the City University of New York, will host a free conference entitled "All in the Family? An Interdisciplinary Conference on Kinship and Community."
I will be a featured presenter in the conference’s closing session, presenting my piece "UnSettled," forthcoming in Queer Empire, an anthology from Routledge. "UnSettled" is a reading and assemblage/slide show that explores the links and dissonances amongst five colonial/post-colonial societies (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States, specifically Appalachia and California) with regard to their indigenous peoples and their colonizers, and the struggles with family, sexuality, and law.
Hope to see you there!
