  • Adventures in Ethics Lecture Series: Todd May (Clemson University)

    11/04/14
    4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    Little Building
    Charles Beard Room

    "State Violence, Structural Violence, and Nonviolence": States often commit overt violence against people, both from their own and other polities. But states also commit or support another sort of violence: structural violence. In contrast to violence that is more direct and easy to identify, structural violence works in more insidious ways. Nevertheless, it has many of the same effects as other forms of violence, particularly those that involve psychological abuse. The task of this talk is to investigate the character of structural violence, particularly when it is supported by the state, and then turn to ask about the character of nonviolent responses to it.

    12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
    216 Tremont
    Bill Bordy

    "Unapologetically Confident"
    Transgender Awareness Week 2014

     
    Lunch & Learn Series with Diversity & Inclusion, and Body Image for Justice

    This workshop will engage participants in exploring and challenging gender-based injustice and oppressive systems by using body image as a vehicle to dismantle social norms and messages about individual identity. We will examine the ways in which our multiple identities (racial, sexual, gender, class, ability, etc.) affect and inform our experiences of injustice, particularly embodiment-based prejudice and oppression. Starting with body image—the way we see ourselves as physical beings in the world—we will look at the various layers of injustice and identity, and how they interact. We will also discuss strategies for challenging these injustices by using self-advocacy and self-care as methods for validating our own lives and experiences. This workshop will give participants the chance to engage in both small and large group discussions and activities designed to explore and illuminate aspects of both oppression and liberation/validation.

    Attendees will: 1. Discuss the ways in which we have privilege and ways we are marginalized, understanding our diverse selves 2. Find a greater connectedness through understanding how our larger society is effected by body image 3. Walk away with a better understanding of Trans identity both struggle and celebration.

    Justice Williams Bio:

    Justice Roe Williams is a published poet, a personal trainer, and longtime community activist and organizer. He has a background in youth advocacy and organizing, as well as many years of Trans* and LGBTQ activism, particularly in communities of color. Justice has been consulting for 15 years, facilitating workshops for public and private schools, non-profit organizations and for-profit corporations on diversity and social justice issues. He is currently Executive Director of BodyImage4Justice, a Boston area organization that engages the larger LGBTQ community on issues effecting the Trans community by focusing on their common concerns around body image, health, and wellness. He also is the Trans Health Navigator at Fenway Health.

    Desire and its meaning has been politically and socially constructed in a multitude of ways that influence the ways that we build our relationships. In this workshop we recognize the opportunity we have as Queer, Trans* & 2 Spirit Folks to create new models for our relationships with ourselves and each other that are grounded in love, accountability and consent. We will collectively explore some of the lenses that impact us including race, class, gender, status and relationship to violence and name some important values for deconstructing desire.

    What does it mean to be an artist in the 21st century? How can I make work that is thoughtful, that reflects my time, but emerges out of a great past? How can I engage technology to serve me, rather than serve it? And how can I create work that is socially responsible? Finally, how can I support myself and my family in a changing economy?

    Composer Laura Karpman will discuss her life, work and balancing act that is the challenge and joy of being an artist today.

  • Bright Lights: Finding Vivian Maier with discussion

    11/11/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century's greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a mysterious nanny who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Since buying her work by chance at auction, amateur historian John Maloof has crusaded to put this prolific photographer in the history books. Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

    Followed by discussion with VMA faculty member, Camilo Ramirez.

    John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, 83 minutes, USA, 2013.

    Dancing at LughnasaDancing at Lughnasa
    By Brian Friel
    Directed by Courtney O'Connor
    November 6-9, 2014
    Semel Theater / PPC

    Ballybeg, County Donegal, Ireland, 1936. The five Mundy sisters welcome their mentally and physically frail elder brother home from a life as a missionary in Africa – a small act of family charity that signals a sea change in life for the five women. Love blooms briefly for some sisters, and opportunity looms for others, but as summer fades to fall, dreams fade to reality – and the sisters gather to celebrate the harvest festival of Lughnasa together one last time. Elegant, rueful, heartwarming and honest, Dancing at Lughnasa is Brian Friel's masterpiece – a lyrical tribute to the spirit and valor of the past.

  • Bright Lights: Mood Indigo sponsored by the French Cultural Center

    11/20/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Based on the beloved novel Mood Indigo by Boris Vian.

     

    Eminently inventive auteur Michel Gondry finds inspiration from french novelist Boris Vian's cult novel to provide the foundation for this visionary and romantic love story starring Audrey Tautou (Amélie, Coco Before Chanel) and Romain Duris (The Beat My Heart Skipped).

    Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, Duris plays wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas (Omar Sy, The Untouchables, X-Men: Days Of The Future Past). When Colin learns that his best friend Chick (Gad Elmaleh, The Valet), a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend's party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloé (Tautou) and, before they know it, they're dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance that Gondry rapturously depicts as only he can. Their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe; a flower begins to grow in her lungs. To save her, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround Chloe with a never-ending supply of fresh flowers.

    Mood Indigo was Nominated for three 2014 César Awards: Étienne Charry (Best Original Music), Florence Fontaine (Best Costume) and Stéphane Rozenbaum (Best Production Design) and also stars Charlotte Le Bon (Yves Saint Laurent, To Reach the Clouds) and Aïssa Maïga.
