Nov 18, 7:00 PM: An Evening at Chez Nous

0
0
For fifty years, the West Berlin cabaret Chez Nous was a star-studded dance club, visited by celebrities and featured in Hollywood films. Chez Nous celebrated the artistry of female impersonators and trans women, including Coccinelle, the first French trans woman to legally change her name following gender confirmation surgery; Ricky Reneé, a drag performer who played Elke in Cabaret (1972); and Chicago’s own Marlow La Fantastique, an internationally acclaimed performer now residing in Bronzeville in her retirement. An Evening at Chez Nous brings that history alive with a cabaret-inspired event including clips of the cabaret’s revue from the 1970s, scenes from films set at the nightclub starring Michael Caine and Omar Sharif, Chicago dancer Darling Shear recreating Marlow’s fan dance, and Marlow La Fantastique herself, sharing her stories and memories of the famous dance club. The evening's emcee will be filmmaker and SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow Chase Joynt. Note: This event takes place in room 901 of the Logan Center. Curated by Nicole Morse (CMS) as part of the Film Studies Center’s Graduate Student Curatorial Program. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, the Department of Cinema and Media Studies, the Student Fine Arts Fund, the Department of Germanic Studies, and the Center for Theater and Performance Studies.

Nov 29, 3:30 PM: Media Wars Student Symposium: Resistance, Gender and Sexuality, and Discourses ...

0
0
In our contemporary moment, we have become accustomed to terms such as “counter-terrorism” that signal an effort to resist internal and external threats, and those suggesting that we live in an age of “post-truth” dominated by “corporate-media,” “fake news,” and “fact-challenged” journalism. Additionally, we regularly encounter a range of media practices and discourse that evoke war and violence. Please join us for a mini-conference of undergraduate research aimed at tracking, evaluating, and theorizing contemporary or historical media that situate gender and sexuality within a so-called “media war,” or in their construction and dissemination of “truth” and/or resistance. The symposium is open to the public and will feature student presentations and discussion of the original research they have developed throughout the fall quarter. The event will be followed by a reception in the lobby. We hope you can join us for this fun and celebratory event. Reception to follow. Part of the Counter Cinema/Counter Media Project of the CSGS.

How do migrants’ sexualities change as a result of their transnational relocation? With Pathways of Desire, Héctor Carrillo (Northwestern University) brings us into the lives of Mexican gay men who have left their home country to pursue greater sexual autonomy and sexual freedom in the United States. Carrillo brings out attention to the full arc of these men’s migration experiences, from their upbringing in Mexican cities and towns, to their cross-border journeys, to their incorporation into urban gay communities in American cities, and their sexual and romantic relationships with American men. These men’s diverse and fascinating stories demonstrate the intertwining of sexual, economic, and familial motivations for migration. Pathways of Desire examines the bidirectional, albeit uneven, processes of exchange between countries in the global North and the global South. By considering sexuality-related change in the global South, it challenges the view that gay men from countries like Mexico would logically want to migrate to a “more sexually enlightened” country like the United States. And, at the most practical level, the book shows how the intricacies of cross-cultural sexual and romantic relations may affect the sexual health and HIV risk of transnational immigrant populations. Héctor Carrillo is professor of Sociology and Gender & Sexuality Studies at Northwestern University, where he also co-directs the Sexualities Project at Northwestern (SPAN). Dr. Carrillo is the author of the award-winning book The Night Is Young: Sexuality in Mexico in the Time of AIDS, and of Pathways of Desire: The Sexual Migration of Mexican Gay Men, both published by the University of Chicago Press. He currently conducts research on the paradoxes of the modern notion of sexual identity. Part of the Gender, Sexuality and Global Capitalism Project of the CSGS.

Co-sponsored by the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, the Counter Cinema/Counter Media Project at the University of Chicago Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, and the Nightingale Cinema. Barbara Hammer will appear via Skype in conversation with Jennifer Wild, associate professor in the University of Chicago’s Department of Cinema and Media Studies and Department of Romance Languages and Literatures. As part of a two-night celebration of pioneering lesbian filmmaker Barbara Hammer, we’re pleased to present the Chicago premiere of her latest film, Welcome To This House (2015, 79 min., DCP), a feature documentary on the homes and loves of poet Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979), about life in the shadows, and the anxiety of art making without full self-disclosure. Hammer filmed in Bishop’s “best loved homes” in the U.S., Canada, and Brazil, believing that buildings and landscapes bear cultural memories. Interviews with poets, friends, and scholars provide “missing documents” of numerous female lovers. Bishop’s intimate poetry is beautifully performed by Kathleen Chalfant, and with the creative music composition by Joan La Barbara, it brings Bishop into our lives with new ways and unexpected details. Senses of Cinema raved, “as befits its subject, the film is a primarily poetic project, which inhabits the world of Bishop and her poetry, entranced by the beauty of life in all its forms.” Slant Magazine said “Hammer is careful to keep the film’s focus primarily on a sensorial experience of Bishop’s work and chosen habitat, which at its best becomes a polymorphous evocation of the sonorous affects permeating Bishop’s physical and psychological milieu.”
