Twenty-five years after the development of the “reproductive justice” framework in Chicago, Cinema 53 partners with the Chicago Abortion Fund to consider the complex experiences that constitute “RJ” today. The 3-part series“Freedom, Autonomy, Access: 25 Years of Reproductive Justice” brings together organizers, scholars, artists, and health workers to view ground-breaking films and explore the critical inheritance and vital future of the movement for reproductive justice. With this brash, ‘90s indie film about Chantel, her confident teen wisdom and complicated real-life decisions, Leslie Harris became the first African American woman director to win Best Feature Film at the Sundance Film Festival. Insightful and fresh after 27 years, Just Another Girl on the I.R.T.’s honest take on shopping, high school and unexpected pregnancy still resonates. Screening followed by conversation with Harris and a youth leader from the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health, moderated by Cinema 53 director Jacqueline Stewart. (Leslie Harris, 1992, 92min) Harper Theater, 5238 S Harper, Chicago Admission is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-seated. Doors open at 6:45pm.

0
0
Join Eric Stanley, Assistant Professor of Gender & Women’s Studies at UC Berkeley, for a discussion of Tourmaline’s 2017 film “The Personal Things.” The film documents Miss Major’s decision to change her identification documents from “M” to “F” then back to “M” as a way of marking herself as, in her words, “a transgender woman.” While surveillance technologies and their metrics expand through and beyond gender’s racial contours, Major’s narrative charts an alternative path of disruption that is not moored to representational coherence. As a fugitive on the run from classical recognition, Major illustrates the fierce strategies necessary to become, as Denise Ferreira da Silva suggests, a “nobody against the state.” By reading the film with theories of anarchism and the legal category of “unruliness” this talk proposes that an anti-state analysis is, and has been, central to the possibility of trans life. Cosponsored by the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. RSVP required at https://form.jotform.com/PozenFamilyCenter/eric-stanley

Maria Cecilia Hwang Assistant Professor of East Asian Studies and Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, McGill University"Unbound and Bound Spheres of Globalization: Borders, Markets, and Asymmetries in Global Mobility" This talk compares the regional circulation across Asian global cities of independent women sex workers from the Philippines and the global mobility of their male clients, who are mostly professional expatriates and business travelers from Global North countries. Based on a qualitative study conducted in Hong Kong and the Philippines between 2010 and 2018, this talk expands current theorizations of global circuits by empirically revealing the asymmetries in the mobility of transnational professionals and transnational low-wage workers. It demonstrates the emergence of “unbound and bound spheres of globalization” in which the formal circuits of professional expatriates and business travelers are indeed unbound and global in scope while their low-wage counterparts in Asian global cities, which includes Filipina sex workers, are more than likely to only circulate within a bound “regional pocket of free travel” in Asia. Maria Cecilia Hwang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of East Asian Studies and the Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies at McGill University. Before joining McGill, she was a Henry Luce Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Southeast Asian Studies at Rice University. Hwang is a qualitative sociologist who employs ethnography to examine social and political economic processes in globalization. She is interested in identifying the inequalities that emerge in globalization, the borders and boundaries it creates and sustains, and the stratifications that arise. Her works have been published in International Migration Review, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, and WSQ: Women's Studies Quarterly. Part of the Gender, Sexuality and Global Capitalism Project.

Omise'eke Natasha Tinsley Associate Professor of African and African Diaspora Studies at the University of Texas at Austin"Beyoncé in Formation: Remixing Black Feminism" Making headlines when it was launched in 2015, Omise’eke Tinsley’s undergraduate course “Beyoncé Feminism, Rihanna Womanism” has inspired students from all walks of life. In Beyoncé in Formation, Tinsley now takes her rich observations beyond the classroom, using the blockbuster album and video Lemonade as a soundtrack for vital new-millennium narratives. Woven with candid observations about her life as a feminist scholar of African studies and a cisgender femme married to a trans spouse, Tinsley’s “Femme-onade” mixtape explores myriad facets of black women’s sexuality and gender. Turning to Beyoncé’s “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” Tinsley assesses black feminist critiques of marriage and then considers the models of motherhood offered in “Daddy Lessons,” interspersing these passages with memories from Tinsley’s multiracial family history. Her chapters on nontraditional bonds culminate in a discussion of contemporary LGBT politics through the lens of the internet-breaking video “Formation,” underscoring why Beyoncé’s black femme-inism isn’t only for ciswomen. From pleasure politics and the struggle for black women’s reproductive justice to the subtext of blues and country music traditions, the landscape in this tour is populated by activists and artists (including Loretta Lynn) and infused with vibrant interpretations of Queen Bey’s provocative, peerless imagery and lyrics. In the tradition of Roxanne Gay’s Bad Feminist and Jill Lepore’s best-selling cultural histories, Beyoncé in Formation is the work of a daring intellectual who is poised to spark a new conversation about freedom and identity in America. Omise'eke Natasha Tinsley is an associate professor of African and African Diaspora Studies and Associate Director of the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, where she teaches the popular course Beyoncé Feminism, Rihanna Womanism. Tinsley is the author of Thiefing Sugar: Eroticism between Women in Caribbean Literature and Ezili’s Mirrors: Imagining Black Queer Genders. Co-sponsored by the Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop

In 1994, twelve Black women gathered in Chicago and founded the reproductive justice movement. Naming themselves Women of African Descent for Reproductive Justice, they organized around three fundamental principles: the right to have children, to not have children, and to create and care for families in safe and healthy environments. Now, 25 years later, Cinema 53 partners with the Chicago Abortion Fund to commemorate the creation of that powerful framework and consider the complex experiences that inform these basic rights today. This three-part series of films and conversation brings together organizers, scholars, artists, and health workers to view ground-breaking features and explore the critical inheritance and vital future of global “RJ.” “Your choices are only as good as your options.” Facing an $8000 bill for prenatal care or an abortion hundreds of miles away, Deb (Lily James) teams up with her sister Ollie (Tessa Thompson) on a border-crossing, drug-running, last-chance scheme to survive in the midst of the opioid crisis, in this acclaimed first feature by writer/director Nia DaCosta. Followed by conversation with Brittany Mostiller, former executive director of Chicago Abortion Fund, moderated by Quenna Lené Barrett, theater performer, director and writer. (Nia DaCosta, 2019, 105min) Harper Theater, 5238 S Harper Admission is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-seated. Doors open at 6:45pm.

Nov 22, 12:30 PM: Andrea Long Chu: "Females"

0
0
Andrea Long Chu joins us to read from her new book, Females (Verso, 2019), followed by a Q&A. “Everyone is female, and everyone hates it.” So begins Andrea Long Chu’s genre-defying investigation into sex and lies, desperate artists and reckless politics, the smothering embrace of gender and the punishing force of desire. Drawing inspiration from a forgotten play by Valerie Solanas—the woman who wrote the SCUM Manifesto and shot Andy Warhol—Chu aims her searing wit and surgical intuition at targets ranging from performance art to psychoanalysis, incels to porn, and even feminists like herself. Each step of the way she defends the indefensible claim that femaleness is less a biological state of women and more a fatal existential condition that afflicts the entire human race—men, women, and everyone else. Or maybe she’s just projecting. A thrilling new voice who has been credited with launching the “second wave” of trans studies, Chu shows readers how to write for your life, baring herself with a morbid sense of humor and a mordant kind of hope. Co-sponsored by 3CT and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.
