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.
