Oct 29, 4:00 PM: Book Salon | Ishtyle: Accenting Gay Indian Nightlife

0
0
Join the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality for a book salon discussion of "Ishtyle: Accenting Gay Indian Nightlife" featuring: Kareem Khubchandani (Mellon Bridge Assistant Professor of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Tufts University), author Lakshmi Padmanabhan (Assistant Professor of Radio/TV/Film, Northwestern University), discussant Sharvari Sastry (PhD Candidate in South Asian Languages and Civilizations and Theater and Performance Studies, The University of Chicago), discussant Sneha Annavarapu (Social Sciences Teaching Fellow, The University of Chicago), moderator Registration is required via Zoom link below. About the Book Ishtyle follows queer South Asian men across borders into gay neighborhoods, nightclubs, bars, and house parties in Bangalore and Chicago. Bringing the cultural practices they are most familiar with into these spaces, these men accent the aesthetics of nightlife cultures through performance. Kareem Khubchandani develops the notion of “ishtyle” to name this accented style, while also showing how brown bodies inadvertently become accents themselves, ornamental inclusions in the racialized grammar of desire. Ishtyle allows us to reimagine a global class perpetually represented as docile and desexualized workers caught in the web of global capitalism. The book highlights a different kind of labor, the embodied work these men do to feel queer and sexy together. Engaging major themes in queer studies, Khubchandani explains how his interlocutors’ performances stage relationships between: colonial law and public sexuality; film divas and queer fans; and race, caste, and desire. Ultimately, the book demonstrates that the unlikely site of nightlife can be a productive venue for the study of global politics and its institutional hierarchies.

Oct 21, 5:00 PM: Virtual Turns: Doing Ethnography During and Beyond a Pandemic

0
0
Understanding the complex processes that create and reinforce social inequalities, discrimination, and oppression in communities across the world has never been more urgent. Yet, with the COVID-19 pandemic, our ability to safely and ethically conduct in-person ethnographic research is limited. In this panel discussion, our speakers - three ethnographers who have pivoted to teach courses on virtual/digital methods - talk through the unique challenges and new opportunities facing qualitative researchers today. Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality, the Ethnography Incubator, the Center for Latin American Studies, and the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation About the Panelists: Sneha Annavarapu, UChicago Social Science Teaching Fellow Sneha Annavarapu is a Social Sciences Teaching Fellow. Sneha is an ethnographer who studies urban governance, gender and class in India. She is teaching a class titled "Digital Lives, Virtual Societies" in Winter 2021 in which students will learn how to do qualitative research in the absence of the possibility of face-to-face interaction. You can learn more about Sneha's research and writing at www.snehanna.com Benjamin Fogarty-Valenzuela, Postdoctoral Fellow at the UChicago Ethnography Incubator and the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation A cultural anthropologist and photographer, Benjamin Fogarty-Valenzuela is a postdoc at the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation and Sociology Department at the University of Chicago. Part of the Chicago Ethnography Incubator, Benjamin is a multimodal ethnographer and a sociocultural anthropologist, and his research centers on youth, education, and politics, especially in Brazil. His current book project on the politics of time in Rio de Janeiro stems from his broader interest in the waning viability of forms of spatial control and the corresponding rise of time as the object of governance and resistance in Latin America. In summer 2020, he taught a course on virtual methods for undergraduates. Cate Fugazzola, Earl S. Johnson MAPSS Postdoctoral Instructor Cate Fugazzola is an Earl S. Johnson Instructor of Sociology in MAPSS. She is an ethnographer whose work centers on transnational queer movements in authoritarian contexts, and her pre-pandemic research focused on LGBT organizations in the People’s Republic of China. Cate is currently teachig a course titled “Digital Ethnography” in which students develop an online ethnographic project and explore epistemological, ethical, and practical matters in the study of virtual worlds.

Oct 23, 3:00 PM: A Dialogue on Racial Melancholia

0
0
A Dialogue on Racial Melancholia with Amy Hollywood (Harvard University), Terrence L. Johnson (Georgetown University), and Joseph R. Winters (Duke University). In 2001, Anne Anlin Cheng posed a question that still remains today: "How does an individual go from being a subject of grief to being a subject of grievance? What political and psychical gains or losses transpire in the process?" On the one hand, widespread anti-Black police violence appears to call for immediate redress, political action, and agency. On the other hand, political expediency and fear may foreclose lines of inquiry into psychical injury and social histories of racial violence just as the logics of commensurability and quantifiability that undergird attempts to legally redress racial injury fail to address losses that are incommensurable and unquantifiable. Through an engagement with psychoanalysis and literature, this dialogue will explore the racial politics of mourning and address the tensions between grief and grievance, between mourning and militancy, and between reparations, redress, healing, and resistance. This event is part of the Department of Comparative Literature's "In Dialogue" series and is presented with the generous support of the Divinity School, the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture, and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Please email the event organizer, Prof Kris Trujillo (kjtrujillo@uchicago.edu) or department administrator, Ingrid Sagor (isagor@uchicago.edu) for the zoom link and password to attend.

What would it mean for women worldwide to be truly economically empowered? In response to systematic exclusion from economic participation, women have shaped an entirely different set of economic practices: the Double X economy. While restricted, this system represents a careful, cooperative, and focused economic order that could greatly improve the order under which the world exists now. Join author Linda Scott and professor Marianne Bertrand in discussing Scott's new book, "The Double X Economy: The Epic Potential of Women's Empowerment." Linda Scott is Emeritus DP World Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Oxford. Marianne Bertrand is Chris P. Dialynas Distinguished Service Professor of Economics and Willard Graham Faculty Scholar at Chicago Booth.
