Oct 24, 10:00 AM: Heather Love, Workshop: Queer Description

0
0
The workshop will be about description; please prepare for it by practicing description. Bring a ~500 word description of an artifact, event, interaction, representation, or other object or material you are working with in your research. In the workshop, we will share our descriptions with each other. We will also discuss protocols of description; description v. interpretation, argument, and evaluation; “situated knowledges” and the problem of perspective; how to capture the agency of objects; and what makes for an effective description. As much as possible, set these questions aside in writing for the workshop in order to focus on the description (and the object) itself. Heather Love received her A.B. from Harvard and her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. Her research interests include gender studies and queer theory, the literature and culture of modernity, affect studies, film and visual culture, psychoanalysis, race and ethnicity, sociology and literature, disability studies, and critical theory. She is the author of Feeling Backward: Loss and the Politics of Queer History (Harvard 2007), the editor of a special issue of GLQ on the scholarship and legacy of Gayle Rubin ("Rethinking Sex"), and the co-editor of a special issue of New Literary History ("Is There Life after Identity Politics?"). A book of her essays and lectures (Queer Affect Politics: Selected Essays by Heather Love, ShenLou Press 2012) was published recently in Taiwan. She is spending 2014-2015 as the Stanley Kelley, Jr., Visiting Professor for Distinguished Teaching in Gender and Sexuality Studies at Princeton.

Oct 23, 4:30 PM: Heather Love, Norms, Deviance, and the Queer Ordinary

0
0
The study of norms and deviance is central to the intellectual genealogy of queer studies. While social science scholars have recognized commonalities between the sociological study of deviance and contemporary queer studies, queer humanities scholars have been slow to do so. A significant aspect of what Gayle Rubin has described as the “obscured” history of the field, research on deviance and social problems in the social sciences shaped queer studies’ commitment to subcultures, to non-normativity, and to a constructionist view of sexuality. However, early queer theorists transformed the study of deviance by turning non-conforming behavior from an object of study to a political program. This collapse of the position of the scholar and the social deviant produced transformations in the ethos and style of scholarship, and yet it did not profoundly change the material conditions or the power relations between professional academics and the marginal subjects they study. While queer studies has understood itself alternately as interdisciplinary and as anti-disciplinary, it has failed to grapple with methods of description and objectification that would allow for a fuller apprehension of social worlds and of the position of the researchers who study them. Through this return to the history of postwar sociology, Love argues the account of deviance as part of the social world rather than a departure from it offers an important model for queer scholarship and for the apprehension of the queer ordinary. Heather Love received her A.B. from Harvard and her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. Her research interests include gender studies and queer theory, the literature and culture of modernity, affect studies, film and visual culture, psychoanalysis, race and ethnicity, sociology and literature, disability studies, and critical theory.

LGBTQ Student Life’s 2014 OUTober keynote speaker, transgender activist CeCe McDonald, addresses racism, transphobia, and incarceration faced by transgender women of color.

The program is hosted by the Office of LGBTQ Student Life and the Institute of Politics, and sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, the Spiritual Life Office, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture. CeCe McDonald was a political prisoner incarcerated for defending herself against a racist, transphobic assault in July, 2010. Due to her willingness to fight, supporters and activists in Minneapolis and across the U.S. built up a solidarity campaign to demand her freedom, and were able to win her a reduced sentence. After serving a 17-month term, she was released in January 2014. After being released CeCe quickly became a leading and outspoken fighter in the movements for LGBTQ liberation, prison abolition, and racial justice. She is currently working on a forthcoming documentary with actress Laverne Cox on her case, “Free CeCe”. She was the Grand Marshall of Seattle Pride this year, she received the Bayard Rustin Civil Rights award, and has spoken on Democracy Now!, MSNBC, and various other media outlets.
