The Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture announced the first Spring 2013 Colloquium this week.

The event, titled Co-opting Theory: How Feminist Ryan Gosling Saved my Academic Life, will be presented by Danielle Henderson, a PhD candidate in the UW-Madison School of Gender and Women’s Studies and creator of the popular Tumblr, Feminist Ryan Gosling.

Danielle Henderson speaks about the intersections of feminism, race, and popular culture.
