What can we do with zines? And what can zines do to us? Preliminary explorations, every Friday in January. Show and programming curated by Bea Malsky and Jean Cochrane. / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / STUDYING Three scholars graciously guide us through a mock session of GNSE 10100: Problems in the Study of Queer Zines. What productive frictions arise from the incorporation of zines into academic research? Are the two methods of inquiry as polarized as they seem? How can we bring zines into the academy without insulting them?

Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop Prof. Amanda Sharkey (Associate Professor of Organizations and Markets, Booth School of Business) is curating the workshop this quarter under the theme, “Gender and Work.” Great progress has been made toward gender equality in the workplace over the last several decades. Yet, significant gender-based disparities in pay and promotions remain. These differences are rooted in a variety of cultural, social and economic structures, but the workplace environment clearly plays a critical and proximate role in shaping women’s career trajectories, thereby influencing the extent of economic equality overall. This quarter’s workshop will focus on issues of gender inequality in the workplace, with a particular emphasis on understanding key organizational factors (e.g., formal policies and practices as well as informal cultural aspects of workplaces) that either promote or reduce disparities between men and women on the job. January 26th: Youngjee Cha, Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology Indiana University "Are Some Occupations More Family-Friendly than Others? The Effects of Occupational Contexts on Using Leave and Flexible Work Policies" Please see the workshop blog for further details: http://cas.uchicago.edu/workshops/genderandsexuality/ Papers are made available in advance via our email list.

By what methods can the ephemeral be preserved, let alone indexed? What does that index offer to contemporary creators? Why should monied institutions care about archiving these forms of queer imagining?

Show and programming curated by Bea Malsky and Jean Cochrane. / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / OPENING Our proposition: opening a show is like opening a zine is like opening the closet. In which case, to follow Judith Butler’s line of questioning: “So we are out of the closet, but into what? What new unbounded spatiality?” Well, good company, good wine, and good zines for sale, at the very least. Please Unfold: Five Years of the F.E.M.M.E. Zine Amber Sollenberger's F.E.M.M.E. zine chronicles an ongoing queer becoming: a process that begins slowly, over the course of weeks, months, years, and then coalesces—suddenly—into a political awakening. In eleven issues, five years, and untold accumulations of glue, tape, found images, and blackout poetry, Sollenberger has built her world into an archive of optimism and articulated pain. This retrospective brings together the first years of the F.E.M.M.E. zine and selections from Sollenberger’s personal collection. It was made possible through the generous support of Lauren Berlant and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.

Tanisha C. Ford discusses her book "Liberated Threads: Black Women, Style, and the Global Politics of Soul" [reception to follow] About the book: From the civil rights and Black Power era of the 1960s through antiapartheid activism in the 1980s and beyond, black women have used their clothing, hair, and style not simply as a fashion statement but as a powerful tool of resistance. Whether using stiletto heels as weapons to protect against police attacks or incorporating African-themed designs into everyday wear, these fashion-forward women celebrated their identities and pushed for equality. In this thought-provoking book, Tanisha C. Ford explores how and why black women in places as far-flung as New York City, Atlanta, London, and Johannesburg incorporated style and beauty culture into their activism. Focusing on the emergence of the “soul style” movement—represented in clothing, jewelry, hairstyles, and more—Liberated Threads shows that black women’s fashion choices became galvanizing symbols of gender and political liberation. Drawing from an eclectic archive, Ford offers a new way of studying how black style and Soul Power moved beyond national boundaries, sparking a global fashion phenomenon. Following celebrities, models, college students, and everyday women as they moved through fashion boutiques, beauty salons, and record stores, Ford narrates the fascinating intertwining histories of Black Freedom and fashion. About the author: Tanisha C. Ford is an assistant professor of Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is the author of Liberated Threads: Black Women, Style, and the Global Politics of Soul (UNC Press, 2015). Ford has current and forthcoming publication in the Journal of Southern History, NKA: Journal of Contemporary African Art, and The Black Scholar. Her research has been supported by institutions including the Ford Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and the Center for Black Music Research.Her public writing and cultural commentary have been featured in diverse media outlets and publications including The Root, the New Yorker, NPR: Code Switch, Fuse, News One, The Feminist Wire, and Feministing. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and The Seminary Co-op Bookstores.

A content more volatile: than what contains it. This is a brief talk on narrative and the nervous system: how syntax, for example, registers the non-verbal aspects: of the scene. What is a scene? How can performances build the novel from the bottom-up, the inside-out? How might [could] a writer return to writing what is not or never the writing-to-be? "A sentence is a nerve throbbing on the riverbank." And so on. With some thinking about how a novelist might overcome the extreme sense: of being exposed: to view. What the novel-shaped space is. Rather than the novel: itself.

Feb 17, 3:00 PM: Women’s Leadership and International Relations

0

Federiga Bindi discusses women's achievements in foreign policy and analyzes continued obstacles to women's leadership in international relations. It is often said that if more women were at the helm of foreign policy, there would be more peace in the world. While women’s leadership in international relations is increasing, women involved in foreign policy still face greater challenges to climbing the seniority ladder when compared to other areas of government. Tellingly, despite the high-profile success of figures such as Jeane Kirkpatrick, Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power, only 29% of the chiefs of mission at the State Department and of senior foreign positions at USAID are held by women. This trend is matched in the European Union where only 29% of the staff at the European External Action Service headquarters are women and only 19% of the heads of EU Delegations are women. In this talk, Prof. Federiga Bindi discusses the factors that have impeded women’s ascent to foreign policy leadership positions and suggests some possible solutions to gender-based inequality in this important sector. Prof. Federiga Bindi is Senior Fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations at the Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies in Washington DC and Professor of Political Science at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, where she is the Founding Director of the Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence and holds the Jean Monnet Chair in European Political Integration. Prior to Johns Hopkins, Prof. Bindi was a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution in 2008-2010. She holds holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the European University Institute (Florence). This event is presented by the Center for International Studies and cosponsored by the International House Global Voices Program, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, the Committee on International Relations, the Istituto Italiano di Cultura - Chicago, and the Consulate General of Italy in Chicago. Persons with disabilities who need assistance should contact the Office of Programs and External Relations in advance at 773-753-2274. **This event is free and open to the public.
