43rd Annual Ellen Churchill Semple Day

Semple Day is our annual, Spring celebration of the Geography Department at the University of Kentucky. Come and reacquaint yourself with the Department and University, and enjoy the day’s highlights: an afternoon open colloquium by a distinguished visitor and an evening celebration. In the past, the evening program included a formal dinner; this year we will start a new tradition with a reception for faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of the department at the recently reopened Lyric Theater in downtown Lexington, only a few blocks from campus. The reception provides a chance to catch up with friends (and make new ones), a venue for a brief program of awards and recognitions, and a convenient departure point for post-Semple celebrations on your own in one of the many new restaurants and watering holes in Lexington’s burgeoning downtown food scene.

The event will start at 2:00 PM at the Student Center and will move to the Lyric Thearter at 6:00 PM.

Friday Afternoon Address by Professor Michael Brown, Department of Geography, University of Washington, at the Student Center room 230, University of Kentucky at 2:00pm. 

Sex, Drink, and State Anxieties: Governance Through the Gay Bar

Professor Brown is one of the world’s leading scholars on urban public health, poststructural political theory, the urban politics of AIDS, and governmentality and gay men’s health. Much of his work examines the intersections of sexual citizenship and the political landscape. He has worked extensively on AIDS organizing and activism, on the production of citizenship by everyday acts in the actual places where we live our lives, and on the geographies of the metaphor of the closet. Professor Brown’s research lies at the intersection of urban, political and health geographies, and is often focused close to home, in Seattle, Washington. Professor Brown is a Professor of Geography at the University of Washington.
