Henrietta Moore - Upcoming Talk, University of Toronto Scarborough, March 8, 2013

Prof. Henrietta L. Moore (William Wyse Professor of Anthropology,
University of Cambridge)

"Personal Matters: Intimacy and Exclusion in Africa and Europe"

Organized by the Centre for Ethnography, UTSC

10:30am-12:30pm, UTSC, Room, MW110

Lunch will be served

The talk will discuss recent mass protests over gay marriage in France,
LGBT activism in Uganda and circumcision in Kenya in relation to public
debate and national politics.

Henrietta L. Moore is the William Wyse Chair of Social Anthropology at the
University of Cambridge. Previously Moore was Deputy Director at the
London School of Economics (LSE) and also served as the Director of the
Gender Institute at the LSE. She is a leading theorist of gender in the
social sciences and she has worked extensively in Africa. Her work has
developed a distinctive approach to the comparative analysis of gender and
sexuality, and to the intersections between culture and globalization. Her
recent book, "Still Life: Hopes, Desires and Satisfactions", argues for a
reconsideration of globalization based on ordinary people's capacities for
self-making and social transformation.

All are welcome. Please RSVP to
