    Panelists include: Julie Nelson (University of Boston) Eileen Boris (UC Santa Barbara) Diana Strassmann(Rice University) Moderator: Aidan Beatty (PhD Candidate in History) The central aim of this panel discussion is to address androcentric assumptions inherent in the models and methods of economics that have long predetermined the agents, actions, and economies that are eligible for analysis. Many of the central tenets of modern economic thought, (rationality, the absolute right to private property, the distinction between ‘valuable’ waged labour and unwaged housework) are regularly held to be immutable and natural ideas. The field of feminist economics challenge this epistemology, and highlights how male-centered conceptualizations about the market, workplace, and processes of production have excluded subjects that are viewed as culturally feminine (e.g. family economies, work involving care, occupational exclusion/inequality). This panel seeks to provide a forum for such a discussion, one that will focus on both the inorganic and constructed nature of many of the central concepts of modern economic thought, as well as providing a feminist critique of these concepts.

    STEALTH: A Work-in-Progress Sponsored by the Artists' Salon at the Center for the Study of Gender of Sexuality with Chase Joynt and Alexis Mitchell Join Gray Center Mellon Fellow and CSGS Artists' Salon collaborator Chase Joynt for a one-time-only work-in-progress feedback screening of his newest film STEALTH. Chase and his co-director, Toronto-based media artist Alexis Mitchell together will welcome critical feedback and insights on the film. STEALTH merges hidden camera footage of a patient's surgical procedure with performative vignettes of the objects featured in these medical encounters. By speaking to the objects in the spaces rather than the people, STEALTH explores the intimate and objectifying experience of the surgical table. Screening time is approximately 30 mins with discussion, snacks and drinks to follow. For more information: http://chasejoynt.com/projects/stealth/

    This interactive workshop will help students--at both undergraduate and graduate levels--engage in research about sexuality and gender in Islamic culture. It will sketch out what is "progressive Islam" and how such a religious-intellectual position allows new approaches to the issues of sex and gender. The workshop can help students to identity and understand the main thinkers in the progressive Islamic movement who take a critical stance toward patriarchy and thus open a space for research and dialogue about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity. Limited space. RSVP to Zahra Jamal at znjamal@uchicago.edu by April 6. Provide your name, discipline, year, and a paragraph describing your research.

    In a patriarchal context, most Muslim authorities condemn acts and attitudes associated with modern term homosexuality. However, many Muslims live and worship in social contexts where patriarchy is increasingly weak, individual rights are steadily protected, and gender equality is gradually assumed. These new conditions allow us to rethink the status of homosexuality in Islam as a lived religion, and invite us to reconsider past norms in the light of justice and faith.

    The concept of Sharia, or Islamic law, has been generally misunderstood. With millions of Muslims in North America, it is important for policy makers and the judiciary to have a better understanding of what Shari’a represents, how it is viewed by Muslims, and its historical evolution and application. Islam, Sharia and Alternative Dispute Resolution: will be of great value to attorneys, teachers, students, and professionals. Moderated by Dr. Zahra N. Jamal, Senior Research Associate, CSGS and Political Science. Event to be followed by refreshments and book signing.
