The End of Official Color-blindness and the Rise of Anti-anti-racism in Latin America

April 23 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A few decades ago almost no Latin American countries included questions about race or ethnicity on national censuses. Today, the collection of such data is the dominant practice in the region. Most analysts of this shift have focused on the politics of recognition that pressured states to make afro-descendent and indigenous populations officially visible in statistics and social policy. In this talk, I draw attention to a different reading of this trend. The politics of recognition in Latin America is not merely a politics…

Racial Reckonings and the Future of the Humanities

April 28 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The term “reckoning” denotes acts of calculation, estimation and debts paid. It can carry a sense of a future settlements. It also refers to “ideas, opinions and judgments” as in the phrase, “I reckon.” To what extent, and how, might we imagine a racial reckoning via new work in arts and humanities? The recently formed Centering Race Consortium brings together researchers at four institutions: Brown, Stanford, the University of Chicago and Yale to “center” racial justice in the pursuit of…

Women with a Movie Camera: Khaidu and Its Quest for Women’s Cinema

April 29 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

In the 1970s, Khaidu, the first South Korean women’s film collective, was at the forefront of a new feminist aesthetic that opposed the highly male-dominant and repressive culture of “yusin”—a term literally meaning revitalization, but de facto referring to the absolute rule of Park Chung Hee. Through experimental filmmaking, performance, and the organization of small film festivals where they could exhibit their work, Khaidu members transformed themselves from students at a prestigious women’s college with limited work options into filmmakers…

‘Traitors’ of Justice and Graphic Ethnography

May 6 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Conflict and Post-conflict situations are often marked by the urgency and need for reconciliation. But is reconciliation always linked to justice, peaceful processes or peaceful outcomes? How is the figure of the ‘traitor’ – ‘the enemy within’ – linked to the commonly conjoined twins of justice and reconciliation? What is the role of graphic ethnography in tracing these gaps and tumultuous configurations? What intertextual, intercitational registers do graphic novels draw on? The lecture will call into question the figuration of…

A History I am Not Writing: Sexuality, Exemplarity, South Asia

May 7 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The incitement of the talk’s title, “A History I Am Not Writing,” summons a paradoxical labor for histories of sexuality in South Asia: to read the archival exemplar precisely for what it cannot hold. There is no stabilizing recuperation of historical detail on offer here, but more an exhortation to think the exemplar of sexuality as an absorbing and abundant discursive presence, reassembled through our every act of reading. Bypassing the seductive heroics of recuperative historiography, this talk proffers a…
