GS Class of 1987
Constantine M. Megaridis ’86 ScM, ’87 PhD was appointed University Distinguished Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he has been since 1990. He is also director of the Micro/Nanoscale Fluid Transport Laboratory.
Lise Weil ’79 AM, ’87 PhD published In Search of Pure Lust: A Memoir with She Writes Press. Lise was founding editor of the feminist review Trivia: A Journal of Ideas, and in In Search of Pure Lust she documents her immersion in the heady experiment of lesbian-feminism of the ’70s and ’80s, a time when women were reinventing everything from the ground up, beginning with themselves. A dive into Zen practice begins to turn things around, but her struggle to reconcile hot-headed lesbian desire with spacious Zen mind will persist for a good long while. Scenes from Brown include a conversation about Baudrillard and astrology in the Ratty and a dissertation defense that turns uncomfortably personal.
