Jan 24, 7:00 PM: Real or Imagined: The Role of Gender in the Ancient Middle East

0
0
What are the origins of patriarchy? What were the real and imagined limits of gender identity in the lives of ancient men, women, and children? How have modern scholars revealed, repressed, or misused historical evidence related to sex and gender? Investigate these and other questions to discover how sex and gender identities were created, crystallized, and communicated, and how these developments shed light not only on ancient times, but on our modern day as well. Examine theories exploring gender identity and see how these theories relate to the historical and archeological traditions of the ancient Middle East. Instructor: Malayna Evans-Williams Ms. Evans-Williams focuses on Egyptian history in the University of Chicago Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations. She has a special interest in Egyptian social history and religion. Teacher Recertification CPDUs: 8

Christa Blümlinger (University of Paris VIII) compares the early films and later installations and digital work of the radical Rive Gauche artist-filmmakers Agnès Varda and Chris Marker. Whether they include visits to galleries or present "found objects" or photographs to the viewer, Chris Marker's and Agnès Varda's early films constitute the museum exhibition as a major element. The way both Rive Gauche filmmakers weave together images, sounds, music, and commentary posits a complex relationship between movement and stillness. This in turn resonates with a kind of museum-like gestalt that prefigures their late installations and digital creations. Christa Blümlinger is Professor of Film Studies at the University of Vincennes-Saint-Denis (Paris 8). She has curated numerous curatorial and critical activities in Vienna, Berlin and Paris, including Diagonale (Salzburg) and Duisburger Filmwoche (Duisburg). Her publications include the edition of writings of Harun Farocki (in French) and of Serge Daney (in German), as well as books about essay film, media art, avant-garde cinema and film aesthetics. As a critic she has published in magazines such as Trafic, Cinematheque, Parachute, Intermedialites, montage/av,, and Camera Austria. Counter Cinema/Counter Media Series: What is the visual language of opposition? Does the form of resistance matter today? The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality's Counter Cinema/Counter Media Project focuses on film and media practices that use form to resist and "counter" dominant film and media outlets, platforms, and traditions. In 2013, the Project will mount a series of talks and screenings curated by project director Jennifer Wild (Assistant Professor, CMS), and international film programmers, makers, collectives, and critics.

Feb 20, 5:00 PM: Counter Cinema/Counter Media: Queer Cinema as Counter Cinema in the 21st ...

0

Nick Davis, Assistant Professor of English at Northwestern University, explores recent practices in global queer filmmaking from artistic, ideological, and theoretical vantages, assessing how they function as “counter cinema” and how they expand or depart from prior, collective impetus within LGBT filmmaking. Compared to the much-heralded New Queer Cinema of the early 1990s—influenced strongly by postmodernist aesthetics, AIDS activism, and queer theory’s critiques of identity politics—more recent queer cinema is often arraigned as diffuse in both its cinematic and its counterpublic orientations. This talk confronts two seemingly opposed projects that have been ascribed to recent queer cinema on a global scale: a reclaiming of realism, in both narrative and photographic senses, and a heightening of abstraction, often within enigmatic national allegories that make queer or crypto-queer subjects central to both image and story. Both of these trends within queer cinema have been frequently indicted as insufficiently “political.” However, when considered via Gilles Deleuze’s notions of crystalline cinema and of minor aesthetics and politics, each reveals abundant potentials to resist standard ideologies of how images are organized and of how queerness is conceived.

Four recent works that perform gender and resistance: from sex-play critique to gender outlaws, from hunger strikes to the reconstitution of an archived martyr. Curated by film and video maker Jason Livingston. Jason Livingston is a film and video maker from Upstate New York. His work has been programmed at many festivals and venues, including the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Anthology Film Archives, the Austrian Film Museum, the Margaret Mead Film Festival, Ann Arbor and more. Under Foot & Overstory, winner of a Jury Prize from the New York Underground Film Festival, can be rented from the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre. The Two Boys earned a Special Director's Prize for Poet of the Cinema at the late, great Cinematexas. Some of his recent video work can be seen as part of ETC: Experimental Television Center 1969-2009, a 5-DVD Anthology distributed by Electronic Arts Intermix. He is a recipient of a New York State Council of the Arts Individual Artist Grant for his work-in-progress, INTERSTATE, a long-form video essay about video collectives, the Socialist Workers Party, the Onondaga Nation, family history, political economy and disco. In addition to making moving images, he has worked in film exhibition, most notably with THAW in the late 1990s and with Cornell Cinema from 2002 - 2004. He occasionally writes about cinema for such publications as Afterimage and The Brooklyn Rail.

“Breaking free of conventional unities of body, space and time, this early feature by one of Europe's leading feminist filmmakers is a haunting excursion into psychic disintegration and crumbling identity. It loosely covers one year in the life of Anna, a young Viennese photographer increasingly convinced that the Hyksos, a hostile alien force, are invading people's bodies and responsible for the decay and rising violence around her. Valie Export skillfully exploits montage and integrates video, performance and installation art with elements from Cubism, Surrealism, Dada and avant-garde cinema.”—Women Make Movies Counter Cinema/Counter Media Series: What is the visual language of opposition?

Feb 25, 5:00 PM: From Harlem to Hoamatlond: Hip Hop, Malcolm X and Islamic Activism in Austria

CSRPC & CSGS's Civil Islam Initiative present Dr. Farid Hafez, Department of Oriental Studies, University of Vienna. "From Harlem to Hoamatlond: Hip Hop, Malcolm X and Islamic Activism in Austria," discusses the influence of Hip Hop youth culture on Austrian Muslim youth who established the social movement organisation Islamische Gruppe Oberösterreich out of which the most influential Muslim Youth Movement emerged in the 1990s. It is asked, how these Muslim youth constituted their identity in the 1990s within the frame of Hip Hop youth culture and Malcolm X (who inspired those youth) in respect to their emerging Islamic Activism. The research asks, what role the figure Malcolm X played in respect to the emerging Islamic Activism and by that how different belongings (black resistance, Muslims in the US, membership in Austrian societies) exist next to each other. The merging of religion and youth culture is interpreted as a construction of an alternative youth culture which represents the fight for recognition in the social sphere.

Feb 27, 5:00 PM: Susan Gal: Traveling Feminisms? Women of the Extreme Right in Europe

"Traveling feminisms? Women of the extreme right in Europe" Social movements are becoming as globalized as economies. Feminism has long been transnational. Current versions, especially in the east of Europe, are striking and surprising for their xenophobia and social conservatism. How do social movements and ideals "circulate" and seem to travel? How does such travel contribute to extremism? How is it disrupting the longstanding contrasts between left and right, progressivism and conservatism in Europe. Susan Gal, Mae & Sidney G. Metzl Distinguished Service Professor of Anthropology, of Linguistics, and of Social Sciences in the College, is presently doing research on the political economy of language, including linguistic nationalism, language and gender, and especially the rhetorical and symbolic aspects of political transformation in contemporary eastern Europe and post socialism generally. Her work focuses as well on the construction of gender and discourses of reproduction.
