May 14, 9:30 AM: People and Things on the Move

Every migrant decides what things are essential to making a new life and what can be left behind. The two dozen scholars, from four continents and five disciplines, coming together for this workshop will explain how the experience of migration changes, and is changed by, the things that people bring with them and those they jettison. Five themes have emerged as key: Migration’s transformation of the Fabric of Everyday life; The Material Culture of Religious practice; Home-making in Motion; The Use of Things in Extremis: Concentration and Refugee Camps; Memories and Afterlives: Homes and Museums; and, Theft, Appropriation and Re-use. Sessions focused on the discussion of pre-circulated papers will allow for both wide-ranging and intense discussion. Presented by People and Things on the Move: Migration and Material Culture, a project of the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society. Co-sponsored by the Nicholson Center for British Studies, the Chicago Center for Jewish Studies,the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, the Center for the Study of Race, Culture and Politics, and the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights.

): In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the University and the 20th anniversary of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality (CSGS) in 2016, the CSGS, the Office of the President, and the University of Chicago Press will host Hanna Holborn Gray, former University president and professor of history emeritus to discuss the reissue of “More than Lore: Reminiscences of Marion Talbot,” originally published in 1936, for which Professor Gray has written a new foreward. Talbot was the dean of women at the University from 1895 to 1925 and co-founder of what would become the American Association of University Women. “More than Lore” is a unique firsthand account of the early days of the University and a fascinating look at life as an early twentieth-century college woman, where simply to be a woman was to be a pioneer and the foundations of the modern undergraduate experience were being established.

Nov 18, 6:00 PM: "Regarding Susan Sontag": Film Screening and Discussion with ...

0

The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, the Chicago Women’s Alliance and the UChicago LGBT Alumni Network will co-host a special event this fall: A screening of the film "Regarding Susan Sontag" followed by a discussion led by Professor Deborah Nelson. The event will bring together UChicago alumnae/i interested in gender, feminist and LGBTQ studies to explore the life and work of the famous writer, filmmaker and political activist, Susan Sontag, AB’51 who is among UChicago’s best known alumni. REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is an intimate and nuanced investigation into the life of one of the most influential and provocative thinkers of the 20th century. Passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her career, Susan Sontag became one of the most important literary, political and feminist icons of her generation. Her 1964 essay, “Notes on Camp” made her reputation as a cultural critic. This documentary explores Sontag’s life through evocative experimental images, archival materials, accounts from friends, family, colleagues, and lovers, as well as her own words, read by actress Patricia Clarkson. From her early infatuation with books and her first experience in a gay bar; from her marriage in adolescence to her last lover, REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism still resonate today. Deborah Nelson, Associate Professor, Department of English Nelson studies late twentieth-century U.S. culture and politics, and her interests include American poetry, novels, essays, and plays; gender and sexuality studies; photography; autobiography and confessional writing; American ethnic literature; poetry and poetics; and Cold War history. She is completing the manuscript for a book, Tough Broads, which explores the unsentimental, rigorous, and often "heartless" view of pain (to borrow a term from Hannah Arendt) in the work of some of the twentieth-century's most prominent women artists and intellectuals. Her first book, Pursuing Privacy in Cold War America, examined the discourse of privacy beginning with its emergence as a topic of intense anxiety in the late 1950s. Professor Nelson served as Deputy Provost for Graduate Education from 2011-14 and as Faculty Director of the CSGS (then the Center for Gender Studies) from 2006-09. More on Sontag’s legacy and UChicago: http://news.uchicago.edu/article/2015/01/12/exploring-life-and-legacy-susan-sontag-uchicago-and-beyond Part of the 20th Anniversary Series at the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.

In this workshop we will discuss Julieta Paredes's political manifesto "Hilando Fino desde el Feminismo Comunitario (Finely Spun Threads of Communitarian Feminism)" (see link below to download paper). In this text Paredes offers a critique of neoliberal politics and economics, as well as "Western" feminist theories, and proposes a reformulation of traditional Aymara conceptualizations of gender—codified in the notion of hierarchical complementarity called chacha-warmi—as an alternative for political activism within the context of Latin American colonial legacies. Although it is advisable to read the Spanish-language manifesto in advance, all are welcome to participate. During the first part of the workshop Paredes will present the main ideas of the texts (in English), and this will serve as the point of departure for the conversation. Julieta Paredes is the founder of "Mujeres Creando Comunidad" (Women Creating Community), an indigenous lesbian feminist collective based in La Paz, Bolivia. A theoretician and practitioner of "communitarian feminism," she is one of the most vocal and internationally renowned activists on women's issues in Bolivia and a thoughtful critic of the gender politics fostered under the government of Evo Morales and his ruling party Movimiento al Socialismo (Movement Towards Socialism, MAS). Agnes Lugo-Ortiz (Associate Professor, Latin American Literature) will translate and facilitate the discussion. Lunch will be provided.
