Rethinking School Shooters: Queer Futures, Gay Panic, and the Right to Victimization, a Lecture by Dr. Rachel Levitt

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 3:00pm

Uptown Campus
Anna Many Lounge, Caroling Richardson Building

Rethinking School Shooters: Queer Futures, Gay Panic, and the Right to Victimization
A lecture by Dr. Rachel Levitt, Assistant Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at Kansas State University
3:30pm on March 28, 2019
Anna Many Lounge, Caroline Richardson Building
Some of the most well-known school shooting cases have used the legal defense that the shooter was justified because he was retaliating against the homophobic bullying he endured. However, unlike the bullying cases that center young gay people's experiences with homophobic harassment, these school shooters' defenses require a different relationship to sexuality, race, and gender. In this talk, Rachel Levitt will highlight three school shooter cases and what they reveal about the law, homophobia, racism, and who is seen as a victim. 
Rachel Levitt is an Assistant Professor in the Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies Department at Kansas State University. Dr. Levitt earned their PhD in American Studies from the University of New Mexico with dual graduate certificates in Women Studies, and Race and Social Justice. Their research focuses on the subjects of queer liberation and places those subject formations into historical, social, and legal context. 
This lecture is sponsored by Newcomb College Institute and the Gender and Sexuality Studies Program
