Marriage is the topic of the hour, gay or straight it seems to be getting good press almost everywhere. Hotel Particulier invites you to an irreverent conversation with Lisabeth During and Scot Nakagawa, to think together and talk about making and breaking vows, and about the implications of the fight for same-sex marriage.
In correlation with our dossier: Yes I do (k)not.

Lisabeth During teaches philosophy and film theory at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. She studied theology at Cambridge and is completing a book called 'The Chastity Plot: Studies in an Ascetic Ideal'. Marriage (along with chastity and virginity) has been on her mind for a number of years.

Scot Nakagawa is a senior partner at ChangeLab, a grassroots political lab that explores structural solutions to achieve racial justice. His current blog, Race Files, addresses race and racism in U.S. politics and culture. An unusual entry, expressing his position on same-sex marriage, recently shook the debate around marriage equality.
