Practices of Ecosexuality: Invitation and Program, UPRM, Jan 28-29, 2016


Dear colleagues, students, administrators, community members:

It’s a joy to announce the keynote speaker for Practices of Ecosexuality: A Symposium, Jan 28-29, 2016.

Dr. Susan Block, a renown sexologist and specialist of Bonobo life, cultural practices, and communities, joins us from Los Angeles to keynote on this theme:PES-P1-2

The Bonobo Way: An Ecosexual Paradigm for Humanity.

Her key question is: Can we learn to make peace through pleasure from our great ape cousins?

The keynote is scheduled for 10:30-11:45 AM on Thursday, Jan 28, in the Teatro Figueroa Chapel. It will include live videos from her Bonobo research, and much more.PES-P3-4

We write to invite all of you to attend the keynote and strongly encourage all your students to do so as well. If you’re a professor, please include it in your syllabus. Giving students an incentive to attend and assigning a report on the theme is a great idea. Thank you!

PES-P5-6Considering the multiple crises that afflict the world and the island of Puerto Rico, no theme could be more timely or urgent. Please don’t miss it! Thank you!

It is a unique opportunity made possible by the program Islas Maravillas: Ecosexuality Education and Extensive Research at UPRM. It’s also an effect of the gift economy, since, with no budget to speak of, Dr. Susan Block elected to visit us and bring her expertise to our region. What a great way to turn a crisis into an opportunity for change!

Here I want to express gratitude to administrators who have made it possible. It is a joy to deliver on this promise to you and to the UPRM community. It’s also a joy to welcome our amazing and generous keynote speaker!
