The Right's Gender Wars and the Assault on Democracy

Monday, March 13, 2023 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

William W. Knight Law Center, 110
1515 Agate Street, Eugene, OR 97403

Twenty years ago, Arlene Stein interviewed residents of “Timbertown,” Oregon who became embroiled in a bitter battle over LGBT rights, publishing the prize-winning book The Stranger Next Door. In this talk, which coincides with the re-release of the book with an updated preface, she revisits Stranger in the context of an even more deeply divided nation.

Stein is a professor of  sociology at Rutgers whose research focuses on the intersection of gender, sexuality, culture, and politics. The author or editor of nine books, she received the American Sociological Association’s Simon and Gagnon Award for career contributions to the study of sexualities.

Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Women in Society and the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics' Public Affairs Speaker Series. Cosponsored by the Department of Sociology and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
