Nov 3, 4:30 PM: Ann Cvetkovich, "Ordinary Lesbians and Special Collections: The June L ...

What happens when a grassroots lesbian feminist archive finds its way to the special collections of a major university research library? Does it lose its counterarchival aura, or can it carry its powers of critical intervention into new spaces? My talk explores these questions through the case of the June L. Mazer Lesbian Archives, which have recently been housed and catalogued at UCLA. With particular attention to ephemera and materiality, it will focus in particular on how the self-archiving practices of “ordinary lesbians” make available the lives of those who may not be publicly recognized but whom the archive can make valuable. And it will explore this case history within the broader context of my research on queer archival politics, which includes the models provided by artists whose creative approaches to the archives are simultaneously critical and transformative. Followed immediately by… Thursday, November 3 | 6:30-8:00pm Workshop: “Writing as Archival Practice” CSGS – 5733 S University Avenue, First Floor Seminar Room Both the lecture and workshop are free and open to the public. Part of the LGBTQ Studies Project and the Artists' Salon at the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.

Oct 10, 6:00 PM: Lecture: Christiane Taubira

0
0
JUSTICE IN SERVICE OF EQUALITY. A lecture by, and conversation with, Christiane Taubira, former Minister of Justice of France. Post-lecture discussion moderated by Jennifer Wild (CMS) and Mary Anne Case (Law School). Christiane Taubira founded 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 crimes against humanity. In 2012, she was appointed Justice Minister of France. In that capacity, she oversaw fundamental penal reforms that promote rehabilitation and lowered recidivism rates, and introduced a law that both legalized same-sex marriage in France, and allows same-sex 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 it needs to combat terrorism successfully. This event is sponsored by: France Chicago Center, Center for the Study of Race Politics and Culture, Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, Institute of Politics, University of Chicago French Club, Franke Institute for the Humanities, Cultural Services of the French Consulate in Chicago, Alliance Française de Chicago, International House Global Voices Program, and International House Diplomatic Encounters Series.

0
0
Bringing a minoritarian performance studies perspective to bear on performances executed by Nina Simone between 1958 and 1971, this talk theorizes minoritarian performance as a revolutionary practice born from the dialectical tension between freedom and its negation. The work of minoritarian performance, it argues, is to materialize Simone’s desire “to know what it would feel like to be free,” affect a black feminist reorganization of the limiting conditions of the present, negotiate the unjust distribution of death and exploitation towards black life, and rehearse and realize the potential for what Ernst Bloch described as a life in freedom and happiness. Joshua Chambers-Letson is assistant professor of Performance Studies at Northwestern University. He is the author of A Race So Different: Law and Performance in Asian America (NYU Press, 2013), winner of the 2014 Outstanding Book Award from the Association of Theater in Higher Education (ATHE), and is currently working on a book manuscript titled On the Work of Minoritarian Performance. Along with Ann Pellegrini and Tavia Nyong’o, he is a series co-editor of the Sexual Cultures series of NYU Press. This event is free and open to the public. Part of the LGBTQ Studies Project and the Artists' Salon at the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture.
