In October and early November, the Center for Study of Gender and Sexuality at the University of Chicago will offer three events of interest to the LGBTQ community:

Sarrah Schulman, "Conflict Is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair"

Monday, October 23, 2017 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, Community Room ( 105 )

5733 South University, Chicago, IL

Facebook Event

Sarah Schulman discusses her Judy Grahn Award for Lesbian Non-Fiction winning book on how - from intimate relationships to global politics - inflated accusations of harm are used to avoid accountability, punishment replaces personal and collective self-criticism, and those in positions of power exacerbate and manipulate fear of the "other" to avoid facing themselves.

Sarah Schulman is a novelist, nonfiction writer, playwright, screenwriter, journalist and AIDS historian, and the author of eighteen books. A Guggenheim and Fulbright Fellow, Sarah is a Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at the City University of New York, College of Staten Island. Her novels published by Arsenal include Rat Bohemia, Empathy, After Delores, and The Mere Future. She lives in New York.

Part of a Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality series on strategies for collaborative world-making in a moment of political backlash. Free and open to the public.

Queering Sexual Capitalisms

Thursday, November 2, 2017 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, Community Room ( 105 )

5733 South University, Chicago, IL

Facebook Event

This panel discussion will bring leading scholars from around the country together to discuss how gender, sexuality, and global capitalism co-constitute different kinds of inequalities. The speakers will cover a range of areas from sex work and NAFTA to FIFA soccer and global capital networks. The panel will examine how gender relations are implicated in global processes and examine the structure between the sacred and profane. The panel will address these questions: How do we think about exchanges that are "legal" but socially disreputable? What is the relationship between sexual economies and formal markets?

Panelists:

Elena Shih, Assistant Professor of American Studies, Brown University

Jennifer Tyburczy, Associate Professor of Feminist Studies, University of California Santa Barbara

Ghassan Moussawi, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Gender and Women's Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Gregory C. Mitchell, Assistant Professor of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Williams College

Organized by Kimberly Kay Hoang, Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of Chicago as part of the Gender, Sexuality and Global Capitalism Project of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.

What Can the Law do for LGBT Rights? A conversation with ACLU's Chase Strangio

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, Community Room ( 105 )

5733 South University, Chicago, IL

Facebook Event

Please join us for a conversation with Chase Strangio about the role of the law in shaping public conversations about trans bodies and lives and the constraints and possibilities inherent in advocacy strategies and narratives.

Chase Strangio is a staff attorney with ACLU's LGBT and HIV Project. As a voice at the forefront of litigation and public debate about recently-released political prisoner Chelsea Manning, and current high-school student Gavin Grimm — the lead plaintiff in the trans student case taken to the U.S. Supreme Court — Strangio is a frequent guest on Democracy Now! and National Public Radio, and contributor to Huffington Post and Slate. Chase is also currently co-counsel in the ACLU's lawsuit against President Trump's ban on transgender individuals in the military and in the organization's lawsuit against North Carolina's infamous anti-trans laws, HB2 and HB142.

Organized by Chase Joynt, Postdoctoral Scholar, Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and Sociology, University of Chicago as part of the Contexts of Coalition project of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.
