In an effort to explore diversity in Italian media and culture and to keep up with current debates in the country, the Italian section has invited Italian performance artist Primavera Contu and Dr. Julia Heim to discuss the theme of LGBTQIA+ activism in contemporary Italy. The event is titled “LGBTQIA+ Cultures in Italy”, and it is co-sponsored by the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program as well as the Office for Equity and Inclusion.

 

Doctor Julia Heim will give a talk (in English) on queer sex, politics and art in contemporary Italy. Primavera Contu will then perform an interactive meditation on gender/sexuality/identity. The performance, titled “Don’t Panic, BI PAN. Bisessuale non è una parolaccia”, will explore and examine sexual labels, encouraging all participants to reflect, critically and ironically, on their own sexual identities. 

Both events will be interactive and will give students, faculty and staff a chance to learn about these topics through practices of queer engagement. 


A Q&A session and a reception will follow. 


The event is free and open to the public.

 

We hope to see you there!
