judith stacey is in town

NYU sociologist Judith Stacey is McMaster’s 2009 H. L. Hooker Distinguished Visiting Professor, a position locally referred to as “The Hooker.” Every year, The Hooker delivers two lectures and meets with graduate students in relevant departments. We are very honoured to have Dr. Stacey here this week, and yesterday’s lecture on the alternative family structure of the Mosuo people of China was a great joy. Tonight, Stacey’s talk is on polygamy and same-sex unions in South Africa. For details see this flyer (pdf).

  1. The Hooker lecture was a fantastic part about being at Mac. As a green, but wide-eyed graduate student, I learned a lot from the lectures, and even more from all of other formal and informal interactions that the program includes grads with.
