LGBT Studies Honors David M. Halperin, This Year's Brudner Lecture Recipient

PhotoDavid Halperin delivered the 2011-2012 James Robert Brudner '83 Memorial Prize and Lecture on October 5th on the Yale Campus, and again on October 6th at The Yale Club of New York City. Halperin is the W. H. Auden Distinguished University Professor of the History and Theory of Sexuality at the University of Michigan teaches English, Women's Studies, Comparative Literature, and Classical Studies. He is a classicist by training; his early publications were on Hellenistic Greek poetics and ancient Greek philosophy. He currently works in the history of sexuality, lesbian and gay studies, and feminist and queer theory, and he has played a role in the institutionalization of queer studies within the academy.

His talk "How to Be Gay," was well received both on campus and in New York. For more information about the Brudner Lecture, and a list of past recipients visit, http://www.yale.edu/lgbts/brudner
