Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop The quarter's theme is "Gender and Slavery," and the papers will address the interrelations between gender, sexuality, and enslavement across different historical periods, including contemporary forms of slavery. *January 20th, 2015: Gender and Enslavement: A Methodological Overture. An open and informal discussion with Professors Reginald Jackson and Agnes Lugo-Ortiz. NO READING REQUIRED Description: Gender constructions and regimes of enslavement do not share one and the same universal structure or meaning. They are historically situated. But so are the methodological and disciplinary tools through which we make of their intersection an object of study. What theoretical and practical challenges do we face in posing an interdisciplinary and transhistorical exploration of the relations between "gender" and "slavery"? What different historical phenomena actually come into being through their analytical juxtaposition? What dialogues might such a juxtaposition enable or curtail? In this session professors Reginald Jackson (East Asian Languages and Civilizations) and Agnes Lugo-Ortiz (Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Studies) will lead an open discussion of these issues, taking as points of departure case studies from their own areas of specialty. Please see the workshop blog for further details: http://cas.uchicago.edu/workshops/genderandsexuality/

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

Professor 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. Sponsored by the LGBTQ Studies Project of the CSGS and the Worlding/Writing series of 3CT. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture.

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. Sponsored by the LGBTQ Studies Project of the CSGS and the Worlding/Writing series of 3CT. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture.

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.

Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop The quarter's theme is "Gender and Slavery," and the papers will address the interrelations between gender, sexuality, and enslavement across different historical periods, including contemporary forms of slavery. *March 3rd, 2015: Kay Dian Kriz (Brown University) and Agnes Lugo Ortiz (Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Studies), "A Conversation on the Visual Construction of Mulatas: Slavery and Abolition in the Spanish- and English-speaking Colonial Caribbean" Description: In this session professors Kay Dian Kriz (Art History, Brown University) and Agnes Lugo-Ortiz (Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian-Studies, UChicago) will lead a comparative discussion on the visual construction of mulatas in the English- and Spanish-speaking Caribbean during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Although unevenly perceived as a figure of racial and cultural "in-betweeness," discourses on miscegenation woven through and around the mulata had seemingly different expressions and effects in these two distinct colonial contexts. This discussion will take as points of departure oil paintings by Agostino Brunias in the eighteenth century West Indies and selected objects of material culture produced in Cuba during the 1860s. Through them, we aim to open up a conversation on the particular entanglements between visuality, gender, and enslavement vis-á-vis processes of legitimation and delegitimation of empire and with regard to the asynchronous emergence of abolitionist politics in the region.

Law Students for Reproductive Justice and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality present: JANE: A Fascinating Episode in the History of the University of Chicago's Role in the Struggle for Reproductive Rights Heather Booth will discuss the origins of JANE, a secret and illegal abortion service that she started while a student at the University of Chicago in 1965. JANE ended up providing over 11,000 abortions for women at the University, in Hyde Park, and in the city of Chicago before Roe v. Wade made abortion legal in 1973. Booth will provide context for that era, with special attention to the early years of the women’s movement. In addition to founding and organizing JANE, Heather Booth is founding director of the Midwest Academy and a member of Democracy Partners.

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. Nayan Shah (History MA '90, PhD '95) is Professor and Chair of the Department of American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California and the author of Contagious Divides (UC Press).

Following Zackary Drucker's performance at the MCA on Wednesday, Feb. 18, we will be following up with a reading group about her work, and trans theory and media. We will discuss the readings attached: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/foak1ubjlcxmv7u/AACQB84qVW0sm1bZzrqtLiEGa?dl=0 See below for a short description of each reading. Articles: Doran George, "Negotiating the Spectacle in Transgender Performances of Alexis Arquette, Zackary Drucker, DavEnd, niv Acosta, and Tobaron Waxman" This article helps us to understand how Drucker's use of her own body explores and challenges the conventional spectacularization of the trans body (perhaps especially the trans feminine body) in media, visual culture, and society in general 2014 Whitney Biennial Catalog The photos and discussions of She Gone Rogue and Relationship provide an overview of some of the works that we'll be exploring leading up to, and during, Drucker's visit. These short pieces read Drucker and Ernst's work through gender studies, autobiography, and art history Zackary Drucker's "Bring Your Own Body: The Story of Lynn Harris" This text for a performance based on the archives of intersex pioneer Lynn Harris exemplifies Drucker's interest in rooting her art practice in history, something that is particularly present in She Gone Rogue (Drucker's more recent project along these lines has been establishing an archive of the records of Flawless Sabrina, who appears in She Gone Rogue: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/flawless-sabrina/flawless-sabrina-archive) J. Jack Halberstam's "The Transgender Look" Halberstam builds on classical theories of the cinematic gaze to argue for the emergence of a transgender look or gaze in recent films, focusing primarily on more mainstream productions like The Crying Game and Boys Don't Cry, but finding the best exemplar of the transgender look in the more independent production By Hook or by Crook Presented by the Counter Cinema/Counter Media Project
