Suzanne Braun Levine: Reinventing Love, Intimacy, and Sex After Fifty
No generation before ours has had the prospect of looking ahead to a second adulthood as long as the first. So the question “What Will I Do With the Rest Of My Life?” leaves us elated – and dazed and confused. We know that there must be love, but what does love mean now? To answer it, we need to evaluate our priorities, commitments, and relationships, including with ourselves. Levine says we also need to take inventory of the intimate connections that are already enriching our lives. Such reevaluations can be scary. Will my long-term marriage survive the process? In this new stage, people are exploring the many meanings of interdependence and writing a new love narrative as they live it.

Keynote Address by Gloria Steinem
A keynote address by Ms. Magazine founding editor, Gloria Steinem, will be the centerpiece of a Winter Quarter series of events that looks back on what Ms. has meant to its readers over the last 40 years and that looks ahead to what feminism may mean for the next generation. For over four decades, Steinem has been at the forefront of the women’s movement as a journalist, publisher, author, and political activist. Shelley Fisher Fishkin, the Joseph S. Atha Professor of Humanities, and an organizer of the symposium, will introduce Ms. Steinem.
