 40th Annual Gender Studies Symposium 

Lack & Absence

The 40th Annual Gender Studies Symposium will focus on questions of absence and lack, exploring the theoretical, political, and interpersonal dimensions of these questions in terms of gender and sexuality. We invite participants to consider who or what is overlooked, hidden, excluded, silenced, or invisible, as well as what it might mean to uncover, include, illuminate, amplify, or recuperate what has been absent or lacking.

 Opening Night!
Fir Acres Theatre Presents

The Secretaries

The Fir Acres spring production is a campy extravaganza of Slim Fast chugging murderess secretaries at the Cooney Lumber Mill in Big Bone, Oregon. A new girl joins the steno pool. She’s pretty and good at everything she puts her mind to, but how far will she go to fit into this click, or is it a cult? Once a month a lumberjack mysteriously disappears, and a secretary ends up wearing his jacket. This campy horror-comedy is a feminist contemplation on internalized homophobia and sexism.

This show runs through March 19th.
