"Night in the American Village: Women in the Shadow of the U.S. Military Bases in Okinawa" What is it like to live in the borderlands around a U.S. military base abroad? Akemi Johnson discusses her book, Night in the American Village: Women in the Shadow of the U.S. Military Bases in Okinawa, which explores the complex physical and cultural spaces surrounding the many American bases on this southern Japanese island. Johnson touches on the history since World War II and the many ways Okinawans interact with the U.S. military presence—including resistance, cultural exchange, and identity formation. This event is part of the "Rethinking 'Reversion': Okinawa, Japan, and the U.S. Fifty Years Later Anniversary Series."

A specter is haunting China—the specter of a “masculinity crisis.” On September 2nd, 2021, the Chinese government issued a ban on “sissy men and other abnormal aesthetics” on TV and media sites, as a part of its effort to promote traditional, revolutionary, and socialist culture. In this virtual event, panelists Yan Long (Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley) and Yige Dong (Assistant Professor of Sociology, Global Gender & Sexuality Studies, SUNY Buffalo) will be joined by discussant Yuchen Yang (PhD Candidate, Department of Sociology) to discuss what the policy can tell us about gender and sexuality in Chinese media, politics, and beyond. Caterina Fugazzola (Assistant Senior Instructional Professor, Global Studies) will moderate. This event is free and open to the public but registration is required. Co-sponsored by Global Studies.

Nov 17, 6:00 PM: The Porn Star After OnlyFans and SESTA/FOSTA panel with Heather Berg, Hoang ...

0

From its Golden Age in the 70s to the mid 2000s, porn’s key emblem was the “porn star,” the erotic performer-celebrity whose name and body were both highly influential and massively exchanged in images and conversation. But does this figure still hold weight for the contemporary? Today’s porn landscape is more horizontal and amateur than ever before, with user-generated subscription-model content dominating the world of erotic media. And simultaneously, workers in the industry and the images they produce are increasingly regulated, censored, and condemned by the federal government and financial institutions, as well as through long-standing campaigns against “immorality” and “trafficking.” In this Zoom panel, Heather Berg, Hoang Tan Nguyen, and Ty Mitchell discuss how porn performers and porn studies are adapting to the new figurations and labor conditions of erotic performers alongside the massive resurgence of sex panics and federal crackdowns on sex work. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Please contact tbrazas@uchicago.edu if you require any accommodations to enable your full participation.

Join us for a conversation with Manon Garcia on her new book "We Are Not Born Submissive: How Patriarchy Shapes Women's Lives." Garcia will be joined in conversation by Nancy Bauer. About the Book: In her new book, WE ARE NOT BORN SUBMISSIVE: How Patriarchy Shapes Women’s Lives (Princeton University Press), philosopher Manon Garcia returns to feminist thinker Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex, and examines the complex ways in which gender hierarchies in society shape women’s experiences. Ultimately, she asserts that women do not actively choose submission. Rather, they consent to—and sometimes take pleasure in—what is prescribed to them through social norms within a patriarchy. Throughout the book, Garcia demonstrates that the submission of women is a crucial topic for both feminism and philosophy and that Beauvoir’s thinking provides deeply original, important, and relevant ways to understand it. We Are Not Born Submissive demonstrates that only through the lens of women’s lived experiences and the ways they adapt to society around them, can we understand the ways in which gender hierarchies in society shape women’s experiences. There is submission in the fact of “dieting” or starving oneself to fit a size 0. There is submission in the behavior of wives of academics or writers who are participating in the research and are not credited as co-authors. There is submission in taking up the entire mental load of the family. There is submission in accepting that men don’t do their fair share of domestic work or parenting. About the author: Manon Garcia is an assistant professor of philosophy at Yale University. Twitter @ManonGarciaFR About the interlocutor: Nancy Bauer is professor of Philosophy and dean of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. She is the author of Simone de Beauvoir, Philosophy, and Feminism (Columbia University Press, 2001) and How to Do Things With Pornography (Harvard University Press, 2015). Co-sponsored by the Seminary Co-op Bookstore. This event is free and open to the public but registration is required via the link below.
