"Help-seeking and Barriers of Domestic Violence Survivors in Kyrgyzstan: A Grounded Theory Study"
Saltanat Childress
, PhD Candidate, University of Maryland School of Social Work
Thursday, April 16, 4:00pm, 206 Ingraham Hall
This talk explores the experiences of women with gender-based violence in Kyrgyzstan, their coping mechanisms, and barriers to help-seeking, using methods of qualitative research and grounded theory development. Several reports of international organizations have emphasized the scope of domestic violence in Kyrgyzstan, yet no study has attempted to examine the meaning of domestic violence from the perspective of the survivors. To address this gap, this study used a qualitative approach to explore the experiences of women survivors in order to better understand what initiatives could make social services, law enforcement, and public health systems more responsive to their needs. The experiences narrated by the women in this study emphasize the need for concerted multi-sectoral efforts to advance the safety and protection of women in Kyrgyzstan. More broadly, the findings highlight the wider societal issues that must be addressed in Kyrgyzstan to combat the problem of gender-based violence and suggest a number of important areas for future theory, practice, and research.

“Queering Pan-Americanism: Sexuality, Politics, and Performance in Tulio Carella's Recife Diaries, 1960-1961”
Severino Albuquerque,
Spanish & Portuguese, UW-Madison
Monday, April 20, 2015, 3:30 P.M., 212 University Club Building
This presentation focuses on the diary Argentine playwright and theater professor Tulio Carella (1912-1979) wrote during an 18-month stay in Recife, Brazil, in the politically charged period leading up to the 1964 coup. The apprehension of the manuscript (published a few years later as Orgia) by the military deployed additional fissures to Carella's writing of exclusion and pain, and provided further evidence that private practices were receiving political significance at a time of growing repression in South America. In this paper I undertake a critical reading of the extensive changes Carella made to his text upon his return to Argentina, including the framing of his Recife experience in terms of politics, a gendered performance, and his particular take on Pan-Americanism.

Crossdressing, Sex, and Gender Labor in Early Modern Literature
Tuesday, April 28, 2015, 5:30pm, LGBT Campus Center
Dr. Simone Chess, Assistant Professor of English and an affiliate of the Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies Program, Wayne State University
Presenting from her upcoming book project on representations of male-to-female crossdressing in early modern texts, approaching romantic partnerships in crossdressing texts through the concept of “gender labor,” in which a cisgender (not crossdressed or trans*) partner participates in cocreating his or her partner’s queer gender. While work on gender labor thus far has focused on contemporary subjects, this approach demonstrates the ways in which the concept can be generatively applied to an early modern context. For example, in Margaret Cavendish’s Convent of Pleasure, Lady Happy asks the MTF crossdressed “Princess” to participate in the convent’s theatrical productions, and to play the role of a male suitor. In doing so, she takes the lead in creating a moment of male-to-female-to-male-crossdressing, and also in initiating gender play and performance with her crossdressed love interest. This concept is pushed to its extremes in John Lyly’s Gallathea, in which two genderqueer crossdressers, Gallathea and Phillida, each thinking that the other is male, create and enact romantic love scenes that involve gender play and a cocreated divestment from biological sex. In addition, Dr. Chess introduces not only a lone instance of FTM crossdressing with Gallathea, but also an instance of intersex representation through the ballad “The Male and Female Husband.”

CALL FOR PAPERS/POSTERS

INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHING COMPETITION
CALIFORNIA SERIES IN PUBLIC ANTHROPOLOGY

The California Series in Public Anthropology encourages scholars in a range of disciplines to discuss major public issues in ways that help the broader public understand and address them. Two presidents (Mikhail Gorbachev and Bill Clinton) as well as three Nobel Laureates (Amartya Sen, Jody Williams, and Mikhail Gorbachev) have contributed to the Series either through books or forwards. Its list includes such prominent authors as Paul Farmer co-founder of Partners in Health, Kolokotrones University Professor at Harvard and United Nations Deputy Special Envoy to Haiti.

Each year the Series highlights a particular problem in its international call for manuscripts. The focus this year will be on STORIES OF INEQUALITY.

We are particularly interested in authors who convey both the problems engendered by inequality as well as ways for addressing it. Prospective authors might ask themselves:  How can they make their study “come alive” for a range of readers through the narration of powerful stories? They might, for example, focus on the lives of a few, select individuals tracing the problems they face and how they, to the best of their abilities, cope with them. Prospective authors might examine a specific institution and how, in various ways, it perpetuates inequality. Or authors might describe a particular group that seeks to address a facet of the problem. There are no restrictions on how prospective authors address STORIES OF INEQUALITY – only an insistence that the proposed publication draw readers to its themes through the inclusion of powerful stories about real people. The series is directed at the general public as well as college students.

The University of California Press in association with the Center for a Public Anthropology will review proposals for publication independent of whether the manuscripts themselves have been completed. We are open to working with authors as they wind their way through the writing process. The proposals can describe work the author wishes to undertake in the near future or work that is currently underway. The proposals submitted to the competition should be 3-4,000 words long and describe both the overall work as well as a general summary of what is (or will be) in each chapter. We expect the completed, publishable manuscripts to be between 250-300 pages (or 60,000-100,000 words) long excluding footnotes and references. Examples of the types of analyses we are looking for include:

Death Without Weeping: The Violence of Everyday Life in Brazil
by Nancy Scheper-Hughes
Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherin Boo
Imperial Reckoning: The Untold Story of Britain’s Gulag in Kenya by Caroline Elkins
American Dream: Three Women, Ten Kids, and a Nation’s Drive to End Welfare by Jason DeParle
Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink
There Are No Children Here: The Story of Two Boys Growing Up in the Other America by Alex Kotlowitz

We are interested in establishing committed, supportive relationships with authors that insures their books are not only published but are well publicized and recognized both within and beyond the academy. We are committed to insuring the success of winning proposals.

SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE APRIL 21, 2015

Submissions should be emailed to: bookseries@publicanthropology.org with the relevant material enclosed as attachments. They can also be sent to: Book Series, 707 Kaha Street, Kailua, HI. Questions regarding the competitions should be directed to Dr. Rob Borofsky at: bookseries@publicanthropology.org.

All entries will be judged by the Co-Editors of the California Series in Public Anthropology: Rob Borofsky (Center for a Public Anthropology & Hawaii Pacific University) and Naomi Schneider (University of California Press)

CONFERENCES

The Eleventh Social Theory Forum
New Perspectives in Intersectionality: Race, Gender, Class and Sexuality
With Keynote Address by Patricia Hill Collins
April 17-18, 2015, University of Massachusetts Boston
Intersectional approaches to social research suggest that systems of oppression such as race/ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality are interconnected and intersect to shape the experiences of individuals. Intersectional research centers on the experiences of persons often historically ignored by policymakers and in academic scholarship. Without their experiences our theories of power and social processes are both incomplete and inaccurate. As a research paradigm intersectionality has its origins in black feminism, third world feminism and queer theory. It has come to shape research in many disciplines including feminist studies, critical race theory, postcolonial theory, public policy, public health, law, psychology, anthropology and sociology.

Bodies of Knowledge in the Academy: Embodied Knowledges and Academic Freedom
28th Annual University of South Carolina Women’s & Gender Studies Conference
April 23-24, Columbia, SC
As USC’s Women’s & Gender Studies Program celebrates its 40th anniversary on the Columbia campus, we are conscious of the unprecedented attacks on gender and sexuality studies in this region—including legislative attacks on common reading texts at College of Charleston and at USC Upstate, and legislative and institutional attacks on gender and sexuality studies programming at USC Upstate. This seems a perfect time to think about gender studies and embodied knowledges in the academy (and in our region).
We take Bodies of Knowledge as our conference title to honor and acknowledge the important sexuality studies conference founded by Dr. Lisa Johnson at USC Upstate in 2008. Intended to bring a greater knowledge of about sexuality to the region, the conference began, in part, as a response to the 2007 death of Sean Kennedy, victim of an anti-gay assault in Greenville.

Attending to Early Modern Women: It's About Time
June 18-20, 2015 Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Taking as its inspiration the fact that 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the first Attending to Early Modern Women conference, the ninth conference, “It’s About Time,” will focus on time and its passing, allowing us to archive our achievements, reflect on the humanities in the world today, and shape future directions in scholarship and teaching. It will address such questions as: Can we trace gendered and embodied temporalities? How did time structure early modern lives, and the textual and material commemorations of those lives? In what ways do categories of difference condition understandings of time? How do contemporary and early modern conceptions of time inform our work as scholars and teachers?

6th FPR-UCLA Interdisciplinary Conference
A Critical Moment: Sex/Gender Research at the Intersection of Culture, Brain, & Behavior
October 23-24, 2015, UCLA
http://www.thefpr.org/conference2015/
http://www.thefprconference2015.org
This conference occurs at a critical juncture in sex/gender research in neuroscience, anthropology, psychology, and related disciplines. New theories are utilizing a conception of the brain as dynamic, plastic, and adaptable, and of sex/gender brain and behavioral differences as subject to the influence of a broad range of biological, cultural, and social or environmental factors. In organizing this conference, our aim is to bring the neuro- and social sciences together to consider three cross-cutting questions on sex/gender: why now? what’s fixed/changing/changeable? what’s at stake?
