Greta LaFleur is Assistant Professor of American Studies. Her research and teaching focus on early North American literary and cultural studies, the history of science, the history of race, the history and historiography of sexuality, and queer studies. Her first book, The Natural History of Sexuality in Early America (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2018), brings together the history of sexuality and early environmental studies to explore how sexual behaviors were understood in the eighteenth-century Atlantic world.

Take Back the Night is an annual event to support survivors of sexual and gender violence, including sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking, and to take a stand against such violence in our community.  The event will begin at 6pm in Loyola University’s horseshoe on St. Charles Ave. and then will continue at the Qatar Ballroom in the Lavin-Bernick Center on Tulane University’s campus.

Come see a film screening of “Gegen die Wand” (Head On) by Fatih Akin. This 2004 drama is described as follows: "Aiming to break free from her strict family, a suicidal young woman sets up a marriage of convenience with a much older addict, a plan yielding an outburst of envious, sometimes outrageous love. Set in both German and in Turkey, Head On considers how people live, and struggle, under the burdens of their inherited identities.  Includes scenes of self-harm, violence, drug-use, and sex."

Usually we chapter the history of New Orleans by eras of governance, or by traumas such as wars and disasters. We may also interpret local history—or more accurately, historical geography—by how New Orleanians have interacted with the meager but highly valuable topographic elevation of this deltaic plain—its role in selecting this site for the city, where we did and did not urbanize, how we reworked soils and hydrology, at what consequence for urban development, and at what risk for human safety.
