"Stranger Bedfellows: Sodomy, Sex, and Politics in Siam" 

When: Thu., Nov. 29, 12:30 p.m. 2007
Price: free

Yes, she'll talk about Thai lesbians -- and about polygyny. But Tamara Loos isn't advertising the salty side of modern-day Bangkok. At UC Berkeley's Institute of East Asian Studies (2223 Fulton St., Berkeley) on Nov. 29, the Cornell University Associate Professor of history discusses these subjects as they were in the 19th century. Presented by the Center for Southeast Asia Studies, her lecture, "Stranger Bedfellows: Sodomy, Sex, and Politics in Siam," draws upon her book, Subject Siam, which examines the intersections between law, gender, and society in a Southeast Asian nation that is unusual, among other reasons, for the fact that it has never been colonized. 12:30 p.m. CSEAS.berkeley.edu
