    College invites porn actress

    (NewsCore) - Colleges and universities have been known to push the envelope when it comes to inviting controversial figures to campuses, and Williams College, a prestigious private institution in western Massachusetts, is the latest -- by inviting a porn actress.
    The speaker, Jiz Lee, is described in the college calendar advertising the event as "an award-winning genderqueer performer, author, artist and pleasure activist."
    Friday night, a sample of the performer's work is scheduled to be shown on campus followed by a discussion with students.
    Some have been shocked by the graphic description of Lee's talents.
    "For me I think the biggest question right now is a matter of whether the event has academic merit or whether it has social merit," said Marina Bousa, a junior studying anthropology at the college in Williamstown, Mass.
    College officials say they have received roughly a half-dozen calls from alumni and one parent expressing concern.
    Critics of Lee's visit have questioned the administration's judgment and funding of the event, but Williams College officials say the money is coming from a specific endowment received 20 years ago that focuses on education regarding human sexuality and orientation issues.
    "Colleges have all kinds of events. We have hundreds and hundreds of events each year," explains Jim Kolesar, the assistant to the president for public affairs at Williams College. "Some of them are provocative and challenging. ... And to those who don't want to take advantage of the opportunity, they don't have to."
    Event organizers say they are getting a lot of positive feedback regarding Lee's visit and other weekend events related to the Dively Committee's 20th anniversary.
    "We have a small portion of our population that is concerned, but we also have a large population that's not," Justin Adkins, the assistant director of the Multicultural Center, said.
    "We have about 20 alumni coming back for this weekend of Dively events, and they're very excited."
