Larry Kramer, author of the play The Normal Heart and the screenplay Women in Love, the co-founder of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GHMC), and the founder of ACT UP, is in residence at Dartmouth as a Montgomery Fellow this month.
He will be on campus from Monday, January 23, to Friday, January 27. During the week, Kramer will meet with students in classes and at meals; talk to groups of faculty; and participate in a public dialogue, a conversation with Michael Bronski, senior lecturer in women’s and gender studies.
This conversation, which is open to the public, will take place on Tuesday, January 24, at 4:30 p.m. in Filene Auditorium, located in Moore Hall.
The classes Kramer is scheduled to join include the Department of Theater's senior seminar and its “Directing I” course, as well as classes that focus on global health, social justice, rhetoric, and politics.
Established in 1977, Dartmouth’s Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Endowment provides for “the advancement of the academic realm of the College” in ways that enhance the educational experience, in particular that offered to undergraduate students.
