Spread over the entire year, the Kessler Conversations aim to bring together past Kessler awardees in conversation with each other and with emerging researchers and practitioners in Queer Studies to evaluate where we’ve been and where we’re going.
Note: The Kessler award is given to a scholar who has, over a number of years, produced a substantive body of work that has had a significant influence on the field of GLBTQ Studies. The awardee, who is chosen by the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) Board of Directors, receives a monetary award and gives CLAGS’ annual Kessler Lecture.
Double Note: Thanks to Daniel over at the Park Slope Queer Parents Listserv for bringing my attention to this group!
