Please join us on Thursday, March 30, from 6:30-7:45 pm, in person or on Zoom, for the public lecture by this year's Gerszten Family Visiting Professor, Marcia Ochoa. A leading scholar in Latin American/Latinx Studies, queer/feminist/trans studies, and media studies, Professor Ochoa's research on beauty pagents in Venezuela has radically changed the way we think about beauty, race, gender, and performance.
