In addition to our programming for campus residences, SHAPE organizes or co-sponsors a number of on-campus events each quarter of the school year that are open to the Northwestern and Evanston community. Our events range from bake sales and resources fairs to academic panels on sexuality in religion and speakers like filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman. Check out our calendar for information about upcoming events and our archive for more about events we've done in the past. Look here for updates, or subscribe:

Join SHAPE for a screening of Kirby Dick's exposé about the American movie ratings board, This Film Is Not Yet Rated. Dick speaks with numerous filmmakers whose careers have been affected by the seemingly random and sexual-content obsessed judgments of the MPAA.
Featuring interviews with directors like Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry), John Waters (Pink Flamingos), Kevin Smith (Clerks), Matt Stone (South Park), Mary Harron, (American Psycho), and more!
Join SHAPE as we explore the idea that our culture experiences sex and sexuality in a radically different way, for better or for worse, than people living in other times and places. To what extent are we truly different from our ancestors? To what extent are we the same?
The panel will feature four distinguished members of the Northwestern faculty: Professor Francesca Tataranni, Professor Barbara Newman, Professor Carl Petry, and Professor Scott Sowerby, who will be representing Classical Greece and Rome, Medieval Europe, the Medieval Middle East, and Early Modern Europe, respectively. These four will answer questions about the relationship between sex and marriage, same-sex attraction and action, and religious and ethical conventions in the times and places they study. After the panel proceedings, the floor will be opened for questions from the audience. RSVP on Facebook. See you there!
Have you heard of Neil Strauss's "The Game" or vH1's "The Pick-Up Artist"?
Did you know that these are just two items in a whole subculture devoted to teaching men how to seduce women?
Would you like to infiltrate that subculture?
Join Clarisse Thorn and SHAPE TOMORROW Thursday, November 15th at 7:30 in University Hall 122 as they do just that.
Come listen to Clarisse discuss her experiences talking to pickup artists, learning their techniques, and further examine this aspect of our culture.
The SHAPE APPLICATION DEADLINE is
