Brown Bag Lunch Book Discussion with Amy Blackstone, Professor of Sociology at the University of Maine

  • Date: Friday, September 27, 2019
  • Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
  • Location: Dahl Centennial Union, Mott/Borlaug

Dr. Blackstone will participate in a lunch hour book discussion facilitated by a WGST student (Nora Myint). The author will focus on publicly engaged gender scholarship and her new book "Childfree by Choice" where she delves into the childfree movement from its conception to today, exploring gender, race, sexual orientation, politics, environmentalism, and feminism, as she strips away the misconceptions surrounding non-parents and reveals the still radical notion that support of the childfree can lead to better lives and societies for all.

Book copies will soon be available via CEPE.
