Gayle Salamon: "Assuming a Body: Transgender and Rhetorics of Materiality" 

When: Tue., Nov. 30, 5:30-7 p.m. 2010
Price: free

Are our bodies 3D flesh-colored things with eyes and bones in them? Or are they something more subjective? At University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) on Tuesday, Nov. 30, Gayle Salamon discusses her book Assuming a Body: Transgender and Rhetorics of Materiality with UC Berkeley rhetoric professor Judith Butler. Salamon suggests new ways of defining the word "body," drawing upon psychoanalysis and queer theory. 5:30 p.m, free. UniversityPressBooks.com
