Experience the performance of gender through a spectrum of drag culture.

This opening session of the Radcliffe Institute conference “Beyond Words: Gender and the Aesthetics of Communication” will include live drag acts, clips from the award-winning documentary Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens, and a discussion with the makers of the film.

Together, artists and audience will explore questions of gender performance, identity, and expression; examine cultural assumptions; and witness real-time drag transformations.

ASL interpretation will be available for those in attendance.

The Knafel Center is fully accessible. The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study encourages persons with disabilities to participate in our programs. If you have questions about accommodations or the physical access provided, please contact the events department at 617-496-1084 or events@radcliffe.harvard.edu at least two weeks in advance of your visit.
