The 2009 Nicholas Papadopoulos Lecture:
"Stonewall's Children: Life, Loss, and Love after Liberation"

Timothy Patrick McCarthy, Lecturer on History and Literature, Adjunct Lecturer on Public Policy, and Faculty Affiliate at the Carr Center

Carr Center Faculty Affiliate Timothy Patrick McCarthy will deliver the 2009 Nicholas Papadopoulos Lecture on Friday, April 24, 2009, from 4 - 5:30 p.m. in the Harvard Kennedy School's Starr Auditorium. Dr. McCarthy's lecture, "Stonewall's Children: Life, Loss, and Love after Liberation," will commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Stonewall, the June 1969 rebellion in New York's West Village that helped to spark the modern LGBT movement.

The Papadopoulos Lectures are named for Nicholas Papadopoulos, who received his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in engineering from Harvard University. After Nick's death from complications of AIDS in 1994, his mother created a fund in his name to support lectures about gay and lesbian studies or of interest to the gay and lesbian communities at Harvard.

This year's Papadopoulos Lecture is sponsored by the Harvard College Dean's Office, Harvard College Women's Center, Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Harvard Gay and Lesbian Caucus, Harvard College Queer Students and Allies, Harvard College Democrats, Institute of Politics, Kennedy School LGBT Caucus, and the Committee on Degrees in Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality.
