ADULTS ONLY | A Round Table on Love, Eroticism, and Sex

SAVE THE DATE! Thursday, February 15, Arts 160, 6:00-9:00 PM
In an age where we Netflix and chill on Valentine’s Day, write poetry to our beloved (or our cat) on Facebook Messenger and live-tweet bizarre emotional reactions to fictional characters, it’s always nice to see how love used to be. Professors Shannon Fitzpatrick and Alice Sharp and other guests to be confirmed from Classics will be joining us on Monday, Feburary 15 to discuss topics surrounding LUV in all its forms : platonic, romantic, homoerotic, neurotic, etc. So far I know that Queer Harlem Renaissance and the medieval origins of Valentine’s Day will be discussed  and I can guarantee that the other three topics will be just as interesting.
Candy and light snacks will be served. Feel free to invite friends, family or your date, as the event is open to the public. The Facebook event page and poster are coming soon!
