An Evening with Sandy Stone
April 6 at 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Inspired by the seated monologues of Spalding Gray, Sandy Stone presents a performance that will thread together autobiographical stories in order to explore the socialized, constructed self through science, technology, philosophy, medicine, art, and media theory.
In a post-performance discussion, she will be joined by Marjorie Vecchio and Jules Rosskam (Department of Visual Arts) to discuss Vecchio’s mid-production documentary film about Stone’s work and life.
Allucquére Rosanne (Sandy) Stone is Professor Emeritus and Founding Director of the Advanced Communication Technologies Laboratory (ACTLab) and the Convergent Media program of the University of Texas at Austin; Senior Artist at the Banff Centre for the Arts; and Fellow of the Humanities Research Institute, University of California, Irvine.

She is the author of numerous publications including The Empire Strikes Back: A Posttranssexual Manifesto and The War of Desire and Technology at the Close of the Mechanical Age, both of which are available in a wide selection of translated editions.
