Due to travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we unfortunately had to cancel this event. We hope to have Fischel join us next academic year.
Joseph Fischel, Associate Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Yale University, joins us at the University of Rochester for the 2020 Rainbow Lecture.
About the talk:
