2019 Iris Marion Young Distinguished Faculty Lecture Jennifer Wild Associate Professor, Departments of Cinema and Media Studies and Romance Languages and Literatures "How to See One Man's Body: An Experiment in Historical Perception" We think we know certain images well, but with continued scrutiny they provide new historical perceptions and knowledge. This talk will explore the cinematic image of one man’s body, examining how it functions as a multi-faceted repository for human history and an anthropological network of visual and cultural relations. These give voice to muted histories of the French Empire including its colonial penal practices that, in the case of this body, reveal themselves under the sign of his flesh. Free and open to the public.

Jan 18, 7:00 PM: "The T" with Bea Cordelia and Daniel Kyri

0
0
Bea Cordelia and Daniel Kyri present a special screening of their award-winning web series that follows two friends navigating romance and friendship in contemporary Chicago’s queer community. Jo, a trans woman craving an increasingly elusive intimacy, and Carter, a queer Black man at odds with his conservative upbringing, converge from opposite sides of Chicago for a magical New Year’s Eve. As hangovers fade, and the two friends face awkward hook-ups, nervous dates, and the unlikely pursuit of lasting love, at least they have each other. Told in small, quotidian moments—by turns private, public, quietly tragic, and painfully hilarious—The T tells truer-to-life stories about the LGBTQ community than are often portrayed in mainstream media. In conversation with Chase Joynt, Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Chicago. (Bea Cordelia & Daniel Kyri, USA, 2018, 43 min., digital video) Bea Cordelia is a writer, filmmaker, artist, and activist. In addition to co-creating The T, she presented her solo show Chasing Blue at Steppenwolf Theatre’s LookOut series and the inaugural Trans Theatre Festival in Brooklyn. She has received a University of Chicago Performance Lab residency and a Luminarts Cultural Foundation creative writing fellowship. Daniel Kyri is a Jeff-nominated actor, filmmaker, and curator. Named the Chicago Reader’s Best Actor of 2017, he has starred in productions at Lookingglass, Steppenwolf, Chicago Shakespeare and Goodman Theatres, and was most recently seen onstage as Hamlet at the Gift Theatre. In addition to co-creating The T, he currently portrays a rookie firefighter on Chicago Fire. Co-presented by the Film Studies Center and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.
