    Jennifer Nelson, author of More Than Medicine

    In a conversation about her book, More Than Medicine, historian Jennifer Nelson will focus on how feminists of the ‘70s through the ‘90s applied lessons of the New Left and Civil Rights movements to generate a women’s health movement. The new movement shifted from the struggle to revolutionize health care to the focus of ending sex discrimination and gender stereotypes perpetuated in mainstream medical contexts. With renewed attacks on access to health care, contraception, and abortion, Dr. Nelson will suggest ways histories of feminist and social justice activism might provide lessons for current struggles for reproductive freedom. Who Controls Women’s Health?: A Century of Struggle is a free, three-part talk series that examines key battles over women’s ability to control their bodies, health choices, and fertility. It is developed in collaboration with the Museum of the City of New York and supported by a grant from Humanities New York.

    Ramzi Fawaz, author of The New Mutants

    Ramzi Fawaz explores the queer uses of comic strip form in the mixed-media art works of Joe Brainard and David Wojnarowicz. Both New York, East Village residents at key moments in the development of contemporary queer culture (Gay Liberation and the AIDS crisis respectively) Brainard and Wojnarowicz each turned to comics during pivotal transitions in their artistic careers, using the medium to articulate or express a range of emergent queer social and political aspirations. Through comics they spoke to the changing nature of American sexuality and sexual cultures in the face of the most cataclysmic social and political upheavals of our time.
