    CeCe McDonald was a political prisoner incarcerated for defending herself against a racist, transphobic assault in July, 2010. Due to her willingness to fight, supporters and activists in Minneapolis and across the U.S. built up a solidarity campaign to demand her freedom, and were able to win her a reduced sentence. After serving a 17-month term, she was released in January 2014. After being released CeCe quickly became a leading and outspoken fighter in the movements for LGBTQ liberation, prison abolition, and racial justice. She is currently working on a forthcoming documentary with actress Laverne Cox on her case, “Free CeCe”. She was the Grand Marshall of Seattle Pride this year, she received the Bayard Rustin Civil Rights award, and has spoken on Democracy Now!, MSNBC, and various other media outlets. Please join us for an intimate lunch with CeCe McDonald prior to her 6pm campus lecture. Seats will be limited; we are asking students who want to attend to email tbrazas@uchicago.edu an RSVP by Friday, October 10. The lunch is sponsored by the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Student Life, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture.

    The workshop will be about description; please prepare for it by practicing description. Bring a ~500 word description of an artifact, event, interaction, representation, or other object or material you are working with in your research. In the workshop, we will share our descriptions with each other. We will also discuss protocols of description; description v. interpretation, argument, and evaluation; “situated knowledges” and the problem of perspective; how to capture the agency of objects; and what makes for an effective description. As much as possible, set these questions aside in writing for the workshop in order to focus on the description (and the object) itself. Heather Love received her A.B. from Harvard and her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. Her research interests include gender studies and queer theory, the literature and culture of modernity, affect studies, film and visual culture, psychoanalysis, race and ethnicity, sociology and literature, disability studies, and critical theory. She is the author of Feeling Backward: Loss and the Politics of Queer History (Harvard 2007), the editor of a special issue of GLQ on the scholarship and legacy of Gayle Rubin ("Rethinking Sex"), and the co-editor of a special issue of New Literary History ("Is There Life after Identity Politics?"). A book of her essays and lectures (Queer Affect Politics: Selected Essays by Heather Love, ShenLou Press 2012) was published recently in Taiwan. She is spending 2014-2015 as the Stanley Kelley, Jr., Visiting Professor for Distinguished Teaching in Gender and Sexuality Studies at Princeton.

    Nancy Fraser, Legitimation crisis? Political contradictions of financialized capitalism Numerous phenomena suggest a serious crisis of democracy: for example, declining electoral turnout; the rise of extremist parties; widespread disaffection with the European Union; steep narrowing of real policy differences between competing parties as nearly all rush to placate “the markets”; increased capture of public powers by private interests; growing geopolitical irrationality, reflecting the decline of US hegemony. No wonder, then, that diagnoses of political crisis proliferate: we hear now of “post-democracy,” “de-democratization,” “the crises of democratic capitalism,” and “façade democracy.” I suggest that these phenomena are best understood as expressions, under historically specific contemporary conditions, of a general tendency to political crisis that is intrinsic to capitalist societies. I elaborate this thesis in three steps. First, I propose a general account of “the political contradiction of capitalism,” without reference to particular historical forms. Then, I reconstruct Jürgen Habermas’s 1973 book, Legitimation Crisis, as an account of the form this political contradiction assumed in one specific phase of capitalist society, namely state-managed capitalism. Finally, I argue that democracy’s present travails express capitalism’s political contradiction in its current phase of financialized, globalizing capitalism.
