Celebrating A Decade of LGBTQ Scholarship

A standing-room-only
crowd helped celebrate
CLAGS’s 10th birthday at
the 10th Annual David R.
Kessler Lecture on
December 7, which
featured Judith Butler,
introduced by warm
testimonials by David Eng
and Biddy Martin. After the
lecture, CLAGS supporters
danced, dined, shmoozed,
and, of course, debated the
fine points of Butler’s talk,
at a benefit bash in the
Graduate Center’s skylight
room. We are pleased to
offer an excerpt from
Butler’s lecture here —
along with some photos of
the festivities.
