BOYCOTT: A READING BY VANESSA PLACE

April 11, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

BOYCOTT: A READING BY VANESSA PLACE
Thursday, April 11, 7-8PM,
ATLAS 100

A reading by Vanessa Place, one of the most influential and controversial contemporary experimental writers. She will read from her new book “Boycott,” in which she rewrites canonical feminist texts by removing all references to women and replacing them with masculine terms. “Boycott” responds to conceptual artist Lee Lozano’s “Boycott Piece,” in which Lozano refused to speak to women as a protest against patriarchy. Place is an attorney, artist, and writer based in Los Angeles. As an attorney, she represents indigent sex offenders on appeal. She has written about her legal work in the nonfiction book “The Guilt Project: Rape, Morality, and the Law” (2010), and she has published her appellate briefs as literature in her trilogy “Tragodia.” Place is also the author of “Dies: A Sentence” (2006), a 50,000 word, one-sentence novel in verse; and the novel “La Medusa”(2008).
Sponsored by the the Dean’s Fund for Excellence, the Women and Gender Studies Program, the Humanities Program, the Department of English, and the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures.
