A renowned gender/queer theorist, Professor Judith Jack Halberstamfrom the University of South California, kindly accepted our invitation to a student event organized by the LGBIT student club, Sumposion, at International Christian University (ICU).

Professor Halberstam has written on (queer) subculture, pop culture, visual culture etc. "Female Masculinity" and "In a Queer Time and Place" are the most famous writings by Professor Halberstam.

This event is student-organized and student-oriented, meaning that the expected audience is primarily undergraduate students. Graduate students, faculty and those not affliated with university are, of course, welcome, too.

Judith "Jack" Halberstam
-Professor, University of South California. Fields of interest:subculture, pop culture, visual culture, queer culture, etc. Her 1999 "Female Masculinity" opened a door to understanding hegemonic gender norms through the perspective of masculinity on non-male bodies. She also co-authored "The Drag King Book" with Del LaGrace Volcano in 1999. In 2005, she published "In a Queer Time and Place: Transgender Bodies, Subcultural Lives" in which she offers a new way of interpreting the concepts of time and space in queer subculture. She is definitely one of the most exciting scholars in Queer Studies and Transgender Studies in the United States.
