Please join Indiana University, Friday October 12 and Saturday October 13, 2012, as they celebrate the life and work of colleague and friend, Alexander M. Doty. This two-day event will include screenings of some of Alex’s favorite films and presentations from luminaries in queer media studies, a field Alex helped found, reflecting on the vibrant contributions of Alex’s scholarship. The film screenings and talks will be followed by receptions both Friday and Saturday to allow those in attendance to share stories and reminisce about Alex’s life and the impact of his work. Please see the schedule of events (to be posted September 20th) here for more details.
