Why You Should Listen:

Among her many research interests, noted sexuality and queer theory scholar Juana Rodriguez studies how various forms of representation can transform the way we “see” people. Using a group of elderly sex workers in Mexico City as an example, she demonstrates how combining visual and narrative information can influence the way their stories are understood.

Rodriguez is a Distinguished Visiting Scholar and her talk is supported in part through funding from the Office of the Provost: Distinguished Visiting Scholar Program.
