Please join Disability Studies Reading Group, Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, and Center for East European, Russian/Eurasian Studies for a talk by Kateřina Kolářová, Assistant Professor of Cultural Studies, Department of Gender Studies, Charles University in Prague Sex, AIDS, and the Dystopic Impulse: The Affective Landscapes of Post-Socialism And Pedagogies of Self-Transformation The talk explores the dystopic impulse in the narratives of the East Central Europe as they emerge in the aftermath of the neoliberal shock doctrine in the second half of the 1990s. Reading cinematographic images of the youth “homosexual” sex work and of the pornographic industry in the Czech Republic catering mostly to the transnational audience, the talk interrogates the dystopic critique at the moment of the onset of capitalism and its homophobic, racialized and ableist horizons. And yet, I want to propose that these difficult and troubling texts can be read as queer sites from which to reconceptualise, destabilize and de-center the white ‘Northern’ canon of feminist anti-racist disability theory. The voices and lives of the Roma, the youth and oftentimes homeless sex workers, people living with/in proximity to HIV and AIDS, as I argue, offer ways to expand the archives from which to imagine feminist intersectional methodologies so urgently needed in the contemporary moment. February 2, 2017 @ 5PM Common Room, CSGS/CSRPC The event is free and open to public. CSGS is physically accessible and CART will be provided.
