Professor Roxane Gay, an acclaimed writer and cultural critic, will deliver the prestigious Beatty Memorial Lecture on October 11, 2018.
Professor Gay’s work garners international acclaim for its reflective, no-holds-barred exploration of feminism and social criticism. Her collection of essays, Bad Feminist, is universally considered the quintessential exploration of modern feminism. Her debut novel, An Untamed State, was long listed for the Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize. In 2017, Professor Gay released her trailblazing memoir, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, as well as a collection of short stories titled Difficult Women. Professor Gay’s work is relevant, powerful and hugely important, and her appearance at McGill is sure to be highly anticipated.
The Beatty Memorial Lecture is presented by the Office of the Vice-Principal, Research and Innovation, in collaboration with University Advancement. Tickets (5$) are required for the event.
