“F***ing with a Virus”

May 5
4:15 p.m.
Benson Auditorium, Pitzer College

This lecture discusses the unregulated experiments that gay men have been undertaking with HIV-transmission. What is at stake in incorporating a virus into one’s sex life?

Tim Dean is philosopher and author, notable in the field of contemporary queer theory, and author of several works on the subject. He is a professor of English and the director of the Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Culture at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He is the author of “Unlimited Intimacy: Reflections on the Subculture of Barebacking.”


MCSI's 2014-15 public event series is Virus.

For 2014-2105, MCSI will invite prominent scholars, artists, and activists across a range of disciplines, to help us understand both the natural and human forces that define, use, are used by, and try to control viruses. If “AIDS is a crisis of connections,” according to curator John Chaich, then one of the primary goals of MCSI’s year of programming on VIRUS will be to address viral crises by making connections across virology, performance, psychoanalysis, public health, photography, poetry, video, critical Internet studies, environmental analysis and other fields that morally, emotionally, and with conscience engage with the virus, the viral, the sprawl, and the many similar repetitious functions that mindlessly spread illness, pollution, power, or ideas in contemporary culture.
