On Tuesday, March 1, 2011, Randolph-Macon College will host guest lecturer Robin
Payne, who will present “In a Just Society, Would We Need Love? Second-Wave Feminisms
and the Politics of Romantic Love.” The lecture will take place at 7:00 p.m. in
the Washington Room of Washington-Franklin Hall. This event is free and open
to the public.
Payne, a visiting professor of history at West Carolina University, will explore
how second-wave feminists understood the problem of romantic love and politicized
that emotion in their struggle toward gender equality in post-WWII America.
This lecture is part four of the “Edgy Women” series and is sponsored by R-MC’s
First-Year Experience program,
honors program, and departments of history,
sociology, women’s studies
and political science. It is also
sponsored by the Committee on Assemblies and Special Events (CASE).
