0

Environmental disasters are increasing in severity and frequency around the globe as the climate changes. While it may appear that disasters impact everyone equally, there are significant inequalities in the way people are prepared for disasters, exposed to disasters, and recover from them. This panel discussion will address issues such as 1) perceptions of climate change and climate justice across different groups, 2) racial, gendered, and classed disaster inequalities (i.e. financial, physical health, mental health), and 3) the concept of resiliency. Panelists: - James R. Elliott, Professor, Sociology, Rice University; - Timothy J. Haney, Professor, Sociology, Mount Royal University; - Fayola Jacobs, Assistant Professor, Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota; and - Fernando I. Rivera, Professor, Sociology, University of Central Florida Moderated by Rebecca Ewert, PhD Candidate, Sociology, University of Chicago Registration is required via link below. If you need assistance to attend, please contact tbrazas@uchicago.edu. Co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Program on Global Environment.

For decades, the life of American Jazz musician Billy Tipton was framed as the story of an ambitious woman passing as a man in pursuit of a music career. In NO ORDINARY MAN, Tipton’s story is re-imagined and performed by trans artists as they collectively paint a portrait of an unlikely hero. Together, the filmmakers join Tipton’s son Billy Jr. to reckon with a complicated and contested legacy. Join the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture and the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Chicago for a discussion of NO ORDINARY MAN featuring filmmaker Chase Joynt, Professor C. Riley Snorton (English, Gender and Sexuality Studies), and advocate and actor Marquise Vilsón. Registrants will receive a link to screen the film in advance of the discussion. This event is free and open to the public, but registration via Zoom is required at https://uchicago.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_wD7TPmYMRB2u9tbicbKnag If you need assistance to attend, please contact tbrazas@uchicago.edu.
