(un)SAFE an interdisciplinary gender, sexuality, and women's studies graduate student conference at the University of Pennsylvania December 6th and 7th, 2012 with a keynote address by Lauren Berlant Experiences of the contemporary social world are often defined in terms of safety: a group of friends, a college choice or a sexual encounter could be "safe", where a classroom, a piece of equipment or a social space would be "unsafe". But the distinction between safety and unsafety is profoundly unstable, and articulates some of the most disturbing paradoxes of contemporary life. Safety can be banal, when a writer or athlete reaches only for goals within immediate reach, but it can also be utopian, in the scene of therapy, learning or rehearsal.
