May 14, 6:00 PM: Malgré la nuit with director Philippe Grandrieux

0
0
The Film Studies Center presents a screening of "Malgré la nuit" with director Philippe Grandrieux in attendance. An English musician in search of his vanished lover in Paris begins a destructive relationship with a nurse grieving the death of her infant son, joining her on her quest for oblivion in the subterranean world of a brutal sex ring. Co-written with Rebecca Zlotowski (Grand Central) and inspired by philosopher Gottfried Leibniz’s The Monadology, Malgré la nuit is one of Grandrieux’s most emotional works. The exploration of love and the fragility of the human psyche is presented in Grandrieux’s signature elliptical, visceral style, daring viewers to watch the characters’ Orphic journey. (Philippe Grandrieux, France, 2015, 150 min., DCP) Philippe Grandrieux is an artist who works in feature film, experimental television, video art, documentary, and museum and gallery installation. His films have screened at the Locarno Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival, the Festival du nouveau cinéma of Montréal, and the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Film retrospectives, installations, and performances have taken place around the world, including at the Centre Pompidou Metz, Lincoln Center, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He is currently a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study in Cambridge, MA. In partnership with the Department of Cinema and Media Studies; the Arts, Science & Culture Initiative; Critical Inquiry; and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality’s Counter Cinema/Counter Media Project.

Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop We are excited to announce the Spring Quarter schedule for the Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop. This quarter’s theme is “Gender, Sexuality, and the Transnational,” and will be curated by Sonali Thakkar, Assistant Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature. While seminal works of feminist and queer theory have elaborated the gendered and sexed production of the nation and its imagined communities, scholars have also long been preoccupied with the transnational dimensions of gender discourse—we might think, for instance, of the enduring importance of critical work on the relationship of first- and third-world feminisms. The breadth and diversity of such work has only grown in recent years, with the intensified interest in transnationalism and its associated concepts and figures (globality, planetary, etc.). Papers and presentations will focus on the transnational poetics and politics of gender and sexuality, both historical and contemporary. May 3rd: Tristan Bates, PhD Candidate in Comparative Literature, University of Chicago, "Echolocating Home: Voice and Space in Latife Tekin’s Dear Shameless Death and Emine Sevgi Özdamar’s Life is a Caravanserai” Papers are made available in advance via our email list. If you are interested in joining the email list, go to http://lists.uchicago.edu/web/subscribe/sexuality-gender-wkshp or contact the workshop coordinators, Annie Heffernan and Rebecca Oh, at gssworkshop@gmail.com.

May 16, 4:30 PM: Chase Joynt, "You Only Live Twice: Sex, Death and Transition"

0
0
Chase Joynt launches his new book (co-authored with Mike Hoolboom), "You Only Live Twice: Sex, Death and Transition" ABOUT THE BOOK: YOLT explores two artists’ lives before and after transitions: from female to male, and from near dead to alive. "The unspoken promise was that in our second life we would become the question to every answer, jumping across borders until they finally dissolved. Man and woman. Queer and straight." What if it’s not true that you only live once? In this genre-transcending work of true fiction, trans writer and media artist Chase Joynt and HIV-positive movie artist Mike Hoolboom come together over the films of Chris Marker to exchange transition tales: confessional missives that map out the particularities of what they call ‘second lives’: Chase’s transition from female to male and Mike’s near-death from AIDS in the 1990s. Chronicling reactions from friends and families, medical mechanics and different versions of ‘coming out,’ YOLT explores art, love, sex, death and life in changed bodies. ABOUT THE AUTHORS: CHASE JOYNT is a Toronto-based moving-image artist and writer. Recently awarded the EP Canada/Canada Film Capital Award for Emerging Canadian Artist and jury awards for Best Documentary and Best Short, Chase’s work continues to be exhibited internationally. Chase is a PhD candidate in Film at York University and a recipient of a Mellon Fellowship in Arts Practice and Scholarship at the University of Chicago. MIKE HOOLBOOM is an author and filmmaker based in Toronto. He has written four books, received more than seventy awards, and enjoyed fifteen international retrospectives of his work.

May 12, 10:30 AM: Stop Telling Women to Smile @ UChicago

0
0
Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, creator of the Stop Telling Women to Smile social-art series, will be at the University of Chicago May 12-14 for a three-day artist-in-residency program. This program will use social-art practice to address issues of sexual- harassment and misconduct. Tatyana will be giving a lecture, leading workshops, and using wheat paste to exhibit her work. Tatyana is an oil-painter and illustrator based in Brooklyn. In protest of the routine street harassment artist she experienced, she wheat pasted a self-portrait with the caption “STOP TELLING WOMEN TO SMILE” around her neighborhood. That portrait initiated "Stop Telling Women to Smile," an art series in which Tatyana talks to women about their experiences with harassment and uses these conversations as inspiration for captioned portraits. The portraits are posted in public spaces, allowing women to speak directly to offenders in the space where they have previously felt marginalized. Since its creation in 2012, Stop Telling Women to Smile has traveled to walls in countless U.S. cities, Mexico City, and Paris. Most recently, Tatyana was commissioned to paint portraits of BET's‪#‎BlackGirlsRock celebrants: Amandla Stenberg, Danai Gurira, Shonda Rhimes, Gladys Knight, Rihanna, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.

Oct 10, 6:00 PM: Christiane Taubira on “Justice in Service of Equality”

0
0
A lecture by, and conversation with, Christiane Taubira, former Minister of Justice of France. Post-lecture discussion will be moderated by Jennifer Wild (Cinema and Media Studies) and Mary Ann Case (Law School). Christiane Taubira is the founder of the left-wing Guianese party Walwari, and was elected four times to the National Assembly of France (representing French Guiana), where she was the driving force behind the 2001 law that recognizes the Atlantic slave trade and slavery as a crime against humanity. In June 2012, she was appointed Justice Minister of France. In that capacity, she oversaw fundamental penal reforms that prevent recidivism and promote rehabilitation, and introduced a law that both legalized same-sex marriage in France, and allows same-sec couples to adopt children. Ms. Taubira is strongly committed to civil rights, women's rights, and the rights of disadvantaged youth. In the wake of the terrorist attacks France suffered in 2015, she published a book, "Murmures à la Jeunesse", in which she argues that the French Republic has at its disposal all the tools and resources needed to combat terrorism successfully. Jennifer Wild Associate Professor, Department of Cinema and Media Studies, the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, and the College. Affiliated faculty in the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Director of Undergraduate Studies. Mary Ann Case Arnold I.
