Angela Chen talk: Asexual Possibilities
This event is in the past.
In this talk, Angela Chen, author of Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex, goes beyond ace 101 to discuss where asexuality fits into modern sexual politics and how the asexual lens can complete and clarify what we want and where we go next.
Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex was named one of the Best Books of 2020 by NPR, Electric Literature, and Them.
This event is free and open to the public on Zoom.

Her reporting and essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Guardian, Aeon Magazine, Paris Review, Chronicle of Higher Education, Lapham's Quarterly, National Geographic, Smithsonian, and more.
This event is made possible through the Dr. Thomas Klein Gender and Sexuality Speaker Series.
