Terry Castle speaks tomorrow (Monday, March 7)

Please join us for a public lecture by distinguished Puget Sound Alum Terry Castle:

“The Necessary Orphan: Insurrection, Autonomy, Parents and Rebellion in 2011.”
Monday, March 7 at 4pm in the Rotunda.
Free and open to the public.

Terry Castle is a UPS alum (English, 1975), who is a leading literary and queer scholar. Her 1995 Apparitional Lesbian is still fresh and crucial reading for anyone working in queer, gothic, novel, or gender studies. Castle’s latest book, The Professor has been receiving rave reviews for its powerful writing and incisive self-reflection, its torquing of the genre of memoir; it has been nominated for a National Book Circle Critics prize. Castle is always provocative and astute. Her talk on Monday is titled “The Necessary Orphan: Insurrection, Autonomy, Parents and Rebellion in 2011” and will discuss the pop psych phenomenon of “helicopter” parents, undergraduate education, enlightenment, and filial rebellion.
