“Radical Visions: Lesbian Feminist Dreams and Nightmares in the Long 1970s”

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Katelyn M. Cambell, 3rd year PhD student in the Department of American Studies at UNC-CH, presents "Radical Visions: Lesbian Feminist Dreams and Nightmares in the Long 1970s” for our LGBTIQA+ Speaker Series' September event! What does it mean envision a radically different world? To what extent do utopian visions rely upon the existence of a corresponding dystopia? This talk engages with lesbian feminist visions of other possible worlds, utopian and dystopian, from the United States in the long 1970s.

Katelyn M. Campbell's work is concerned with lesbian feminist place-making and relationships to land and settler colonialism in the 1970s. Katelyn is an alumna of Wellesley College and the 2016 Harry S. Truman Scholar from West Virginia. She lives in Chapel Hill with her feline companion, Theodore.

Presented over Zoom, with opportunity for Q&A afterwards. Please register for this event here.
