Downtown Lecture Series: “21 st Century Drag: Queer Play from Social Media to Story Hour”

Sexualities Lecture Series Photo

In this talk, Harris Kornstein, assistant professor of Public & Applied Humanities, will discuss research
into two of drag’s more recent frontiers: digital performances of identity via social media, and children’s
story hours. Drawing on their own performance practice, Kornstein looks beyond discourses of gender
or sexuality, and instead focuses on the ways drag disrupts binaries of truth and fiction, visibility and
privacy, and pleasure and politics.  
This free, in-person lecture is part of the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’;
Downtown Lecture Series on “Sexualities,” held at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Oct. 12, 19, 26, and Nov. 1
at 6 p.m. Free admission with registration.
