THURSDAY, February 14 - Speaker Greta LaFleur (Laurie Holland)

THE COMPLEXION of SODOMY
Thursday, February 14, 4:30 pm
Massachusetts Hall
3rd Floor Faculty Room

Greta La Fleur will discuss her current work on Barbary pirate captivity narratives. Her lecture stems from her book project, American Insides, which argues that the history of sexuality in early America must be conceptualized by examining moments of cultural debate about the relationship between bodily behavior and inner character.

La Fleur’s primary research interests fall within early American literature, feminist and queer theory, the history and historiography of sexuality, the history of science, and 18th-century philosophies of consciousness and subjectivity.

She is assistant professor of English at the University of Hawai’i.
