Toilet Book Launch Party
Wednesday, 15 December 2010 | 6:00 p – 8:00 p
Department of Social and Cultural Analysis at NYU
20 Cooper Square, 4th Floor
Harvey Molotch, Laura Norén and NYUPress are pleased to invite you to join them in celebrating the launch of their co-edited volume “Toilet: The public restroom and the politics of sharing”. Although what happens in the toilet usually stays in the toilet, Molotch and Norén have brought together academics from architecture, sociology, archeology, urban studies, and the law to peel back layers of taboo, speak the unspeakable and reveal the lessons we can learn in the public restroom.
We will be joined by Rick Bell (Executive Director of the American Institute of Architects, New York Chapter) and Catharine Stimpson (Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at NYU) who will be offering brief remarks.
Wine and cheese will be on hand. Please RSVP along with your guests so that will know how many to expect.
This event is co-sponsored by the New York University’s Departments of Social and Cultural Analysis and Sociology, NYUPress, and the Institute for Public Knowledge.
