Readings for the next two Wednesday Classes

Dear Students,

For the next two Wednesdays we will be exploring ideas around the exhibition Queering Space at Alfred University. This coming Wednesday we will meet in Holmes Auditorium to hear visiting artist Nick Lenker discuss his work. He has recommended one of the readings below. nick poster

The following Wednesday 1/31 we will again meet in Holmes AuditoriumĀ  at 9:00am for a discussion with the curators of the exhibition.

I have attached two writings that I hope will give some insight and context to a few of the ideas surrounding the exhibition.

Please read the Jeffrey Shaw article before this Wednesday. The other two readings will need to be completed by Wednesday 1/31
