Aphra Behn of Guerrilla Girls On Tour: PUSH/PUSHBACK - 9 Steps to make a difference with art and activism Aphra Behn shares her experiences as a feminist activist for almost 20 years as a member of Guerrilla Girls (1997-2001) and Guerrilla Girl On Tour (2001 – present). Revealing the inside workings of the grassroots groups she discusses the successes (protests; fax blitzes, speak outs and street theatre); the struggles (hate mail; death threats; backlash) and the downright defeats (sabotage; infighting). PUSH/PUSHBACK - 9 Steps to make a difference with art and activism challenges audiences to use the tactics of the Guerrilla Girls in their own lives to address social issues and to identify as “activists,” “artists,” and “feminists.” The talk is framed with readings from Aphra’s memoir, “UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour” (Skyhorse Publications). If you have ever wondered what it is like to be a feminist masked avenger check out PUSH/PUSHBACK - 9 Steps to make a difference with art and activism. Guerrilla Girls On Tour! are feminist/activists/artists dedicated to creating performance and visual work which addresses the current state of women in the arts and beyond. We prove feminists are funny by touring with world with work aimed to educate, entertain and ultimately transform our audiences into identifying as activist/artists themselves. In addition to making collaborative art, we lead workshops and master classes in using the arts to address local concerns. Aphra Behn is a leading feminist voice in the nation on how to combine activism and art. For the past 20 years she has led the touring activist troupe, Guerrilla Girls on Tour, around the world with talks focused on how to create plays, performances and visual works which address violence against women, pay equity, body image and reproductive rights. She has received the Venus Theatre Lifetime Achievement Award, Yoko Ono Courage Award for the Arts and the Skowhegan Medal. In 2016 her memoir, “UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour,” was published by Skyhorse. The book chronicles Kaz’s experience of surviving domestic violence at the hands of the Hollywood star, William Hurt, and how that led to her career as a feminist activist. Kaz speaks regularly at conferences, universities and festivals and addresses advocates on trauma transformation, social change via art, grassroots activism and the feminist art movement. She has written for and been featured by media outlets including Ms. Magazine, Bitch Media, Bust, Mother Jones, NPR, Alternet, Role Reboot, Trivia: Voices of Feminism, The Dramatist, Ful Art magazine, Girl Drive Blog, Lilith, The Sun, Gender Across Borders and Women in Hollywood.

Join the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and LGBTQ Student Life for a National Coming Out Day study break: Screening of Before Stonewall: the Making of a Gay and Lesbian Community (Director, Greta Schiller, co-director, Robert Rosenberg; 1984) Thursday, October 11 12:15 – 2 pm Arrive at 12:15 for lunch, provided. The film will start at 12:30. In 1969 the police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city's gay community. With this outpouring of courage and unity the Gay Liberation Movement had begun. Before Stonewall pries open the closet door--setting free the dramatic story of the sometimes horrifying public and private existences experienced by gay and lesbian Americans since the 1920s. Revealing and often humorous, this widely acclaimed film relives the emotionally-charged sparking of today's gay rights movement, from the events that led to the fevered 1969 riots to many other milestones in the brave fight for acceptance. Experience the fascinating and unforgettable, decade-by-decade history of homosexuality in America through eye-opening historical footage and amazing interviews with those who lived through an often brutal closeted history.

The Feminist/Queer Praxis series, aimed at undergraduate audiences, brings artists, activists, scholars, and professionals to CSGS to talk about their work in the world as people committed to queer and feminist values and action. Our first Feminist/Queer Praxis event of the year is on Race, Gender and Mass Incarceration. We are excited to welcome our speakers: Sharlyn Grace, Co-Executive Director, and Lavette Mayes, Advocate, Chicago Community Bond Fund The Chicago Community Bond Fund (CCBF) pays bond for people charged with crimes in Cook County, Illinois. Through a revolving fund, CCBF supports individuals whose communities cannot afford to pay the bonds themselves and who have been impacted by structural violence. Inability to pay bond results in higher rates of conviction, longer sentences, loss of housing and jobs, separation of families, and lost custody of children. By paying bond, CCBF restores the presumption of innocence before trial and enables recipients to remain free while fighting their cases. Carolyn Wald, Staff Attorney, ACLU of Illinois Carolyn will discuss Monroe v Rauner, a lawsuit pending against the Illinois Dept. of Corrections for its lack of appropriate medical care for transgender inmates.

Nov 26, 4:30 PM: Julietta Singh, "No Archive Will Restore You"

0
0
Julietta Singh Associate Professor of English & Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, University of Richmond "No Archive Will Restore You" At once memoir, theory, poetic prose, and fragment, No Archive Will Restore You is a feverish meditation on the body. Departing from Antonio Gramsci’s summons to compile an inventory of the historical traces left in each of us, Singh engages with both the impossibility and urgent necessity of crafting an archive of the body. Through reveries on the enduring legacies of pain, desire, sexuality, race, and identity, she asks us to sense and feel what we have been trained to disavow, to re-member the body as more than itself. Julietta Singh is Associate Professor of English and Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies at the University of Richmond, and a writer and academic who works at the intersections of postcolonial studies, feminist and queer theory, and the environmental humanities. She is the author of Unthinking Mastery: Dehumanism and Decolonial Entanglements (Duke University Press, 2018), and No Archive Will Restore You (Punctum Books, 2018). Her academic writing has been published in leading cultural theory journals including South Atlantic Quarterly, Cultural Critique, Studies in Gender and Sexuality, Symploke, and the Journal of Postcolonial Writing. Her creative work has appeared in venues such as American Poetry Review, Animal Shelter, Prairie Fire, Social Text, and Women & Performance. Part of the LGBTQ Speaker Series.
