This Keynote Lecture by Gayle Salamon will explore the case of Latisha King, a gender-transgressive 15-year-old who was shot and killed in an Oxnard, California junior high school by a 14-year-old classmate in 2008. Salamon will offer a phenomenological reading of the school and the courtroom to explore the paradoxical nature of gender and race in this legal case, in which gender was simultaneously treated as a material object and understood as the effect of immaterial bodily gesture. This event is co-Sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics.
