Love/Hate is a program of films on sexuality, gender, race and affection by Kevin Jerome Emerson. The films include “Picnic Free,” “Glenvillle,” “Goddess” and “It Seems to Hang On.”
Mireille Miller-Young is scheduled to discuss Love/Hate, as well as examples from her research on pornography. She is an associate professor of feminist studies at University of Southern California, Santa Barbara, and the 2019-20 Advancing Equity Through Research Fellow at the Hutchins Center for African & American Research at Harvard University.
