Feb 19, 4:30 PM: Glenda Carpio, "On Kara Walker's 'A Subtlety, or The Marvelous Sugar ...

0
0
Proessor Carpio will discuss Kara Walker's controversial sculpture, "A Subtlety," a monumental sugar covered sphinx that drew 130,000 viewers while on a two month display at the soon to be demolished Domino sugar factory in Brooklyn, N.Y. Intended as a tribute to African American women involved in the 19th century sugar trade, the sculpture has raised burning questions about art, slavery, and capitalism. But it is also a sculpture that, from the title on, deploys Walker's sharp wit and black humor. Situating Walker in the context of African American comedic practices, Professor Carpio will discuss the risks and possibilities of using humor to redress the horrors of slavery and its legacy. Glenda R. Carpio is Professor of African and African American Studies and English at Harvard University. Her book, Laughing Fit to Kill: Black Humor in the Fictions of Slavery was published by Oxford University Press in 2008. She is currently working on a book on immigration, expatriation, and exile in American literature. Professor Carpio recently co-edited African American Literary Studies: New Texts, New Approaches, New Challenges (2011) with Professor Werner Sollors.

Mar 5, 4:30 PM: Shaka McGlotten, "Black Data"

0
0
The world is becoming data. Ubiquitous, location-aware computing gathers our biographical and spatial information; it records our choices, and uses algorithms to predict what we will choose or want next. Meanwhile, biometric technologies digitize the body, attempting to capture it on behalf of an array of actors, from states in their ever-expanding search for terrorists, and the private sector, which both works in tandem with the state and seeks to monetize these data. State agencies and corporations collaborate in unprecedented ways in order to obtain and operationalize this data. If you’re connected, you’re captured.The talk uses an eclectic handful of online artifacts to explore the notion of “black data,” a heuristic I suggest offers analytical and political traction for black queer studies. Black data refers to the historical and contemporary ways black people are interpolated by big data, which here include both the technés of race and racism and the various efforts of states and corporations to capture, predict, and control political and consumer behavior. I also use black data to refer to the informatics of black queer life, to expressive practices, emergent epistemologies, and everyday ways of maneuvering through the world. Drawing on some anarchist and cryptographic perspectives, I figure black data as “black ops,” secret or encrypted forms of counter-knowledge that challenge or refuse some of the demands of contemporary imperial power, especially the demand to be seen. In so doing, “Black Data” seeks to bring black queer studies into dialogue with critical studies of new technologies and network cultures. Shaka McGlotten is Associate Professor of Media, Society, and the Arts at Purchase College, State University of New York. He is the coeditor (with Dána-Ain Davis) of Black Genders and Sexualities.

Mar 6, 12:00 PM: Shaka McGlotten, Workshop: "Turnt Out"

0
0
The workshop uses two sets of media artifacts to incite a discussion about sex, race, and politics. The artifacts will remain a surprise, but in a broad sense they emerge from and are addressed to publics largely distinct from academic cultures, addressing as they do in very direct terms themes of sexual pleasure and radical direct action. The idea here will be to confront and expand our limits and capacities of engaging, reflecting on, and discussing a few very material aspects of the political present. Expect triggering, ambivalence, optimism, and more. Shaka McGlotten is Associate Professor of Media, Society, and the Arts at Purchase College, State University of New York. He is the coeditor (with Dána-Ain Davis) of Black Genders and Sexualities.

From woman-centered relationships between early female professors to the beginnings of Gay Liberation on campus, this exhibition will examine the range of experiences lived by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students and faculty on the University of Chicago campus. Drawing on the rich holdings of the University Archives -- including the papers of Marion Talbot and Ernest Burgess, administrative records, and a multitude of campus publications – the exhibition will display letters, academic papers, and student newspaper articles, as well as posters, photographs, and other visual documentation. In tracing this complex history, the exhibition will also introduce new materials collected through outreach to alumni along with selections from oral histories of alumni collected by the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.

Apr 2, 4:30 PM: Forcible Feeding and the Crisis of Care in Indefinite detention // with Nayan Shah

This presentation examines the visual representation and visceral vocabulary of the experiences of refusing food and the procedure of tube-feeding by force in the 20th and 21st century. Force-feeding catalyzed political mobilization and controversies of medical ethics during the imprisonment of suffragettes in Britain and U.S in the early 20th century and have rebounded as the prism of ethical and political crisis in the detainees and deportees struggles in South Africa, Guantanamo and Europe.
