On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email UMDevents@umd.edu.


A Conversation with Judith Hanna

When: Wednesday, April 10, 2013 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Where: McKeldin Library : Special Events Room : 6137
Event Type(s): Lecture

This semester's final installment in the popular series, "Speaking of Books... Conversations with Campus Authors," will feature Dr. Judith Hanna (Anthropology) discussing her book 'Naked Truth: Strip Clubs, Democracy, and a Christian Right.'

'Naked Truth' takes readers onstage, backstage, and into the community and courts to reveal the conflicts, charges, and realities that are playing out at the intersection of erotic fantasy, religion, politics, and law. Dr. Hanna explains why exotic dance is a legitimate form of artistic communication and debunks the many myths and untruths that the Christian Right uses to fight strip clubs.

Light refreshments will be served.
