Jordan plenary paper available

We are sorry to announce that the plenary planned for Thursday, July 8th at 9:30am Eastern Time has been cancelled due to an unexpected illness. Please read what Dr. Mark Jordan was going to share with us, and he will join us at a later date this Fall to engage all of us in a wonderful dialogue.

I am very sorry that I cannot be with you. I was honored to receive the invitation from Boyung Lee and much anticipating the chance to share time with Almeda Wright and all of you. …

Though we cannot gather in an on-line imitation of a classroom, I ask you to imagine, as circumstances allow, that this space –a scene of instruction, as I like to say—has been set apart from distractions, intrusions, and chores. We do not ignore the world. In fact, we try our best to understand it. Still, for a scene of instruction to begin, we must protect attention—especially if we hope to understand sex and gender, those volatile, inseparable, and still risky topics. Could I ask you to set aside some 40 or 50 minutes for this work? To read the paper well you will need to do a little writing. Some weeks from now, REA will schedule an online session for us to discuss it.
