Looming Ethical Dilemma for Gender Scholars: FIXED!

Judith Butler is speaking at NYU this Friday!!! Sure, it's on a Friday at 8pm (i.e., no "actual" picket line to cross), but it's being held in Silver, which is not only *on campus* but one of the buildings we'll be regularly picketing (i.e., "symbolic" landmine).

Let me make this perfectly clear: I don't *love* Judith Butler; I *lurve* Judith Butler. No, I think I *luff* Judith Butler. So any advice for this ethically torn, Butler-loving feminist would be greatly appreciated, as well as any word on whether or not various faculty plan to attend. Are you planning on going?

EDIT: Woohoo! The event has been successfully moved to Cooper Union (see comments section for details).

Has anyone tried contacting her to point out the problem and ask that she move off campus?

JB moved off campus rather than cross our picket line. She knows where it's at.
