Consider This with Casey Parks

Join us for a conversation about family, belonging, and gender with Casey Parks. A longtime reporter for the Oregonian, Parks now covers gender and family issues for the Washington Post, where she has written about abortion access, Texas’ investigation of parents of trans kids, and the long tail of the US military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. In her 2022 book, Diary of a Misfit, Parks relates her own story of coming out in a rural Louisiana town in 2002 and her efforts to uncover the story of Roy Hudgins, a small-town singer who, like Parks, didn’t conform to the expectations of his community. This conversation—the first in our 2023–2024 Consider This series about fear and belonging—will explore how attitudes about gender affect where people seem to fit in. We'll also discuss where these attitudes come from and how they might change. This event will be ASL interpreted. Read more about this event.

Conversation Project: Violencia sexual y el significado de la justicia

Las acusaciones de violencia sexual se han vuelto cada vez más públicas en los últimos años, especialmente con el advenimiento del poderoso movimiento #MeToo. La manera en que tratamos las repercusiones de la violencia sexual es muy compleja y continúa siendo debatida acaloradamente. En esta conversación exploraremos los potenciales significados de la justicia, específicamente en instancias de violencia sexual. ¿Quién la define, cómo se logra y cuándo sabemos que la hemos conseguido? Esta conversación se llevará a cabo en español.
