The Politics of Public Space: Bodies, Restrooms, and Social Justice

Description

Video of the LGBT week lecture on October 7, 2015. Our academic lecture during LGBTQIA Pride Week features Dr. Judith Plaskow, Professor Emerita of Religious Studies at Manhattan College. She focuses on the issue of toilet provision for women and transgender people, exploring how unequal power relations are reflected in the built environment. What does it mean theologically and practically to acknowledge elimination as a basic human function, much the same way that queer studies acknowledge and reclaim sexuality? Digital MP4 HD video recording. Duration: 58 minutes, 51 seconds.
