0
0
A notable difference between Anglophone Postcolonial Studies and the field of Francophone Studies is that for the latter questions of universalism and humanism are always on the horizon of expectation, even when an author or visual artist deploys a strongly oppositional approach to dominant cultural paradigms. In this presentation, I address the new gendered discontents of postcolonialism by way of poetry, oceanic cartography, and creolized identities. I focus on the aesthetic and ethical goals of island writers and artists who engage with the afterlife of colonial history as well as contemporary migrant crises.

Working Together is a new series that brings undergraduate and graduate student activist groups to the Centers to present about their initiatives to the broader community of faculty, staff, and students. We see this series as a way to create more bridges across campus and across generations. Please join us for our second event on Wednesday, May 22nd, which features members of the Phoenix Survivors Alliance: "We are University of Chicago students who work, research and collaborate to provide information and advocacy to survivors of sexual violence. We were formed in the summer of 2013 by students who noticed a lack of advocacy for student survivors on campus. We originally sought to provide support and resources for student survivors. Since our formation, we've expanded our mission to advocate for change on campus. We now work to hold the administration and our peers accountable to creating a safe environment for all."

Join us for a book talk by Nick Estes on his new work, "Our History is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance." His talk will be followed by a round-table with Chicago-based organizers from NoDAPL and BLM, responding to the book. Nick Estes is Kul Wicasa and a citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe. He is an Assistant Professor in the American Studies Department at the University of New Mexico. For 2017-2018, Estes was the American Democracy Fellow at the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard University. His research engages colonialism and global Indigenous histories, with a focus on decolonization, environmental justice, anti-capitalism, and the Oceti Sakowin. Estes is the author of the book Our History is the Future: #NoDAPL, Standing Rock, and the Long Traditions of Indigenous Resistance (Verso, 2019), which places into historical context the Indigenous-led movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. He edited with Jaskiran Dhillon the forthcoming volume #NoDAPL and Mni Wiconi: Reflections on Standing Rock (University of Minnesota, 2019), which draws together diverse perspectives from leaders, scholars, and activists of the Standing Rock movement. He was a guest editor with Melanie K. Yazzie of a special issue of Wicazo Sa Review (Spring 2016) on the legacy of Dakota scholar Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, one of the founders of American Indian Studies. His film and book reviews can be found in Environmental History, Journal of Native American and Indigenous Studies Journal, Harvard Business Review, and Abolition Journal. In 2015, his reporting on bordertown violence and racism for Indian Country Today won a Third Place Prize for Excellence in Beat Reporting from the Native American Journalism Association. Estes’ writing is also featured in Jacobin, Indian Country Today, The Funambulist Magazine, High Country News, and La Jicarita. He was a historical consultant for the episode “Standing Rock II,” for Vice’s 2017 award-winning documentary series “Rise,” directed by Michelle Latimer, and a research consultant for the documentary film Ladonna Harris: Indian 101 (2016), directed by Julianna Brannum. Interviews with Estes have appeared on Native American Calling, Cultures of Energy Podcast, and in Policing the Planet (Verso, 2016), a book edited by Jordan T. Camp and Christina Heatherton. https://oldwars.wordpress.com/writings/ Read an interview with Estes here: https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/power-moves-through-people-an-interview-with-nick-estes/ Co-sponsored by the Depts of Comparative Literature, History, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, and the Pozen Center for Human Rights

May 16, 4:00 PM: RE: // Arts Collective Showcase with Collective Artist Talk

0
0
Join us for a celebration of the inaugural CSGS Arts Collective! CSGS Arts Collective is a recently formed collective comprising Chase, Evelyn, Kate, Katie, Natalie, and Siri. As a nonhierarchical space for resource-sharing and mutual support, the collective promotes artistic experimentation from undergrads and grads, UChicago and off-campus students, alike. Spanning a broad range of media and disciplines, the collective creates interdisciplinary visual and installation art and advocacy without strictly wedding itself to strict distinctions in form, genre, or content. The collective is an inherently fluid organization, but current members work in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, artist’s books, collage, and digital illustration. We strive to cultivate a freeing criticality, both in the art we create and within the dynamic of the collective itself. The collective’s inaugural show, “Re : ” takes icons and tropes from different cultural, personal, and historical memories and reconstitutes, collages, and in the case of one work, literally dissolves them. In navigating iconography from the past and present, the works in this show invite contemplation of how such negotiation could work in the future as well.

Jun 3, 9:00 AM: LET ME HEAR YOUR VOICE!” WOMEN, THE SONG OF SONGS, AND PUBLIC DISCOURSE

0
0
From its foundation, American culture has employed biblical texts and traditions in recurring and legitimizing the subordinate place and role of women, muting their voice and agency. This looks to be changing: women‘s voices are playing a prominent and forceful role in public discourse. The women‘s pussy-hat march on Washington DC and across the United States, the #metoo and Times Up movements, and the toppling like dominos of formerly untouchable assaulters are all landmarks urging the dignity of women and the need for deep social change. Uniquely in the Bible, The Song of Songs celebrates the voice and agency of women — domestic and erotic, natural and exotic. But it has long been marginalized by Judeo-Christian traditions, occluded by allegorical interpretations that explain away its frank eroticism, deflecting its human dimension with recourse to other discourses privileging the divine, history, or nationhood, for example. While the text of The Song of Songs enjoyed some rehabilitation during the rise of feminist and structuralist biblical interpretation in the 1980s and 1990s, such inquiry was deeply shaped by “second-wave” feminism, and has since receded from view. This conference aims to bring this text into a public dialogue shaped by the complex concerns of the current moment. It will provide a forum for religion in the public sphere, with The Song of Songs at the center of inquiry. This inquiry will move in two directions with a reciprocally informing dynamic: How might the text be a recoverable resource for public thought? How do currents in contemporary thought newly condition and challenge our understanding of this unusual ancient poetry?

Starts: June 3, 2019
