    Location: Room IV - University of Chicago Law School As part of the anti-abortion movement's legislative campaign, seven states have passed bans on sex-selective abortion and many more are pending, including in Congress. Advocates of the bans argue that they are needed to prevent widespread elimination of female fetuses by Asians in the United States. They argue that the United States is contributing to the global pandemic of "missing women" and that sex-selective abortion must be banned to promote women's equality. Opponents of these bills point out that they are a "wolf in sheep's clothes" couched in the language of women's equality, but restricting women's autonomy and unfairly stigmatizing minorities. Students in the International Human Rights Clinic at the University of Chicago Law School have been working with economists and the National Asian Pacific Women's Forum to draft a report that will bring empirical data to bear on these policy debates. This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be served. Panelist: Jeff Gilson (3L), Sital Kalantry (UChicago Law), Sujatha Jesudason (University of California, San Francisco), Arindam Nandi (Center for Disease Dynamis, Economics and Policy), Alexander Persaud (University of Michigan), Kelsey Stricker (3L), Miriam Yeung (NAPAWF) Sponsored By: International Human Rights Clinic, Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ), Asian Pacific Law Students Association (APALSA), South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA)

    Opening Reception and Artists' Talk by cartoonist A.K. Summers A.K. Summers's graphic memoir "Pregnant Butch: Nine Long Months Spent in Drag," about one New York City butch woman's experience of pregnancy, was published last month to acclaim by Soft Skull Press. Vanity Fair calls the book "straight-up hilarious"; The Comics Journal finds it "drily whimsical, whipsmart, culturally resonant." In the final Artists' Salon show of the year, "Pregnant Butch," CSGS will continue to explore the theme of embodiment--and specifically, the butch--through exhibiting original ink and Bristol board pages from Summers's groundbreaking work. Her Artists' Talk on opening night will explore comics depictions of the experience of gender. Summers lives in Providence, R.I. with her partner and son. She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is also the creator of the comics zine Negativa: Chicago's Astute Lezbo Fantasy Mag.

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/

    The turn of the millennium has witnessed a uniquely dazzling renaissance in cinematic production within the horror genre. How do we account for the prolific production and prodigious diffusion of horror film since the turn of this last century? From thematic topoi to cinematographic style, horror cinema of the past 10-15 years has witnessed numerous trends emerge, cross-pollinate internationally, and re-enter the genre in cycles of repetition and transformation accelerated by digital production and distribution technologies. And yet, the sheer proliferation and remarkable diversity of vital horror filmmaking makes defining the genre perhaps more challenging than ever before. This conference will approach contemporary horror cinema in its diverse global aspects. Adam Lowenstein (University of Pittsburgh), author of Shocking Representation: Historical Trauma, National Cinema, and the Modern Horror Film, will deliver the keynote address. Conference schedule and details at http://lucian.uchicago.edu/blogs/contemporary-horrors/ Co-sponsored by the Franke Institute, France Chicago Center and Mass Culture Workshop.

    Starts: April 25, 2014
    Ends: April 26, 2014

    On May 15, 2014 CSGS will open a four-week preview to our long-term exhibition project Closeted/Out in the Quadrangles: A History of LGBTQ Life at the University of Chicago. Highlights from our first year of collecting will be on display at CSGS, showcasing the work of the Center's student oral history researchers. Closeted/Out in the Quadrangles is a project of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality documenting LGBTQ life at the University of Chicago from the early twentieth century through the present day collecting oral history interviews with LGBTQ alumni, faculty, and staff, and mining local and national archives. Based on previous research into women's experience at the University, CSGS students and faculty identified a pressing need to capture the history and experience of LGBTQ individuals and communities at the University of Chicago. The three-year project will culminate in an exhibit at Special Collections Research Center at Regenstein Library in Spring 2015 and a permanent oral history archive that can be accessed by future generations of researchers and community members. Oral history narrators are also donating personal papers, organizational records, photographs, and digital files as part of the archive.

    Wednesday, May 7, 2014 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot - An Author Night with Masha Gessen Author Masha Gessen discusses her acclaimed book on the Russian activist group Pussy Riot. Harris School of Public Policy Lecture Hall 1155 East 60th Street Chicago IL, 60637 Words Will Break Cement tells the heroic story of Pussy Riot, the activist group who resurrected the power of truth in a society built on lies. On February 21, 2012, five young women entered the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. In neon-colored dresses, tights, and balaclavas, they performed a “punk prayer” beseeching the “Mother of God” to “get rid of Putin.” They were quickly shut down by security, and in the weeks and months that followed, three of the women were arrested and tried, and two were sentenced to a remote prison colony. But the incident captured international headlines, and footage of it went viral. People across the globe recognized not only a fierce act of political confrontation but also an inspired work of art that, in a time and place saturated with lies, found a new way to speak the truth. Masha Gessen’s riveting account tells how such a phenomenon came about. Drawing on her exclusive, extensive access to the members of Pussy Riot and their families and associates, she reconstructs the fascinating personal journeys that transformed a group of young women into artists with a shared vision, gave them the courage and imagination to express it unforgettably, and endowed them with the strength to endure the devastating loneliness and isolation that have been the price of their triumph. MASHA GESSEN is a journalist who has written for Slate, the New Republic, the New York Times and other publications. She is the author of several books, including The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin, Dead Again, Two Babushkas and Blood Matters: A Journey Along the Genetic Frontier. Cosponsored by the Center for International Studies, the Human Rights Program, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and the Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies.
