Public Lectures, Workshops & Readings

  1. Scott Herring: The Trials of Robert Rayford

    February 21, 2020, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Ekdahl Conference Room, Regnier Hall

    The talk, titled "The Trials of Robert Rayford," is part of the English department's 29th Annual Cultural Studies Symposium. It is free and open to the public.
    Herring's lecture will survey the queer archives of Robert Rayford, a St. Louis teenager sensationalized as "the earliest known case of AIDS in this country." Through Rayford's story, Herring reveals a quagmire of scientific racism, metronormativity and debility that nevertheless offers us insight into representations of pre-Stonewall sexual cultures in the American Midwest.
    Herring is author of "Queering the Underworld: Slumming, Literature, and the Undoing of Lesbian and Gay History" (University of Chicago Press, 2007), "Another Country: Queer Anti-Urbanism" (New York University Press, 2010; Lambda Literary Award), and "The Hoarders: Material Deviance in Modern American Culture" (University of Chicago Press, 2014), as well as numerous scholarly essays and journal articles.
