manliness and masculinity

Tonight (Wednesday night), will be Round Two of the Harvey v. Judith Lecture-Off. I don't know about you, but I'm excited.

In October, Harvey Mansfield proposed a New Feminism (conservatism) in Sever at the same time as preeminint radical social theorist Judith Butler gave a lecture on her new book in the Holyoke Center. Tonight, Mansfield is back for more and this time lecturing on "manliness" in Kirkland (6 pm) at the same time as famous gender and queer theorist Judith Halberstam is speaking in the Barker Center (5 to 7 pm). Halberstam, visiting this semester from USC, is most famous for her book Female Masculinity. I would love to know if either speaker had the other in mind when scheduling their event; it certainly seems too good to be coincidental.

Do you mean that these events are today (Wednesday) or tomorrow (Thursday)? I'm just unsure because of the time at which you posted.

I think it's rather unfortunate that they don't actually debate one another.

The Salient is trying to arrange a debate between Profs. Mansfield and Halberstam for this Spring.

That would be fascinating.

Halberstam, being a famous scholar on female masculinity, might have some things to say to Mr. "Mansfield."

I would like to sort out my differences with Professor Mansfield the Manly way. I am open to a duel any time he would like. His choice of weapons-no projectiles-I vote rapiers.

I invite Judith Butler to be my second.
