May 20, 5:00 PM: Academic Labor in Crisis Times: Jennifer Doyle and Nick Mitchell

0
0
The faculty study group Critical University Studies (CUSS) is sponsoring two public panel discussions this Spring quarter. In this second event Nick Mitchell and Jennifer Doyle will discuss universities’ entanglement with various scenes of security: from campus police and sexual harassment to forms of life that haven’t yet entered the jurisprudential imaginary. 3CT fellow Lauren Berlant and Zachary Samalin moderate the conversation. In the contemporary field called Critical University Studies, a debate is flourishing about what universities are for. This is a debate over how not to repeat the participation of higher ed in the racial, gendered, economic, and policing inequities of the past and present; a debate over how to use our resources to bring better knowledges and relations into being for the present and the future. There was never an inside or outside the university: this area of study keeps discovering entanglements of violence and desire in the orchestration of knowledge and the organization of labor. Presented by 3CT and co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. -- This event is free and open to the public; registration is required. Live captioning will be provided. Please contact us if you require any accommodations to enable your full participation.

The faculty study group Critical University Studies (CUSS) is sponsoring two public panel discussions this Spring quarter. In this first event, Kandace Chuh and Heather Steffen will propose different ways to recast the labor students and faculty are currently doing, rethinking the work of emancipatory knowledge production and relations from where we live now. What does it mean to see “the profession” as a tableau of labor, collaboration, and world-creation? 3CT fellow Lauren Berlant and Zachary Samalin moderate the conversation. In the contemporary field called Critical University Studies, a debate is flourishing about what universities are for. This is a debate over how not to repeat the participation of higher ed in the racial, gendered, economic, and policing inequities of the past and present; a debate over how to use our resources to bring better knowledges and relations into being for the present and the future.

Apr 14, 5:00 PM: Matt Brim on "Poor Queer Studies: Confronting Elitism in the ...

In "Poor Queer Studies," Matt Brim shifts queer studies away from its familiar sites of elite education toward poor and working-class people, places, and pedagogies. Brim shows how the field emerges beyond the halls of flagship institutions: in night school; after a three-hour commute; in overflowing classrooms at no-name colleges; with no research budget; without access to decent food; with kids in tow; in a state of homelessness. By exploring the material conditions of poor and working-class queer ideas and laying bare the structural and disciplinary mechanisms of inequality that suppress them, Brim jumpstarts a queer-class knowledge project committed to anti-elitist and anti-racist education. Join us on Wednesday, April 14 at 5pm CDT as Matt Brim (Professor of Queer Studies, College of Staten Island and the Graduate Center, City University of New York) discusses his book "Poor Queer Studies" with Kris Trujillo (Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Chicago). This event is free and open to the public but registration is required at https://uchicago.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_5PHLyFDET_-I9G8rgvQb-A If you need assistance to attend, please contact tbrazas@uchicago.edu. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture at the University of Chicago.
