VIRTUAL BROWN BAG SERIES (January)
Featuring University of Pittsburgh Gender Scholars: Dr. Bridget Keown, Lecturer in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies "Women and War Trauma, 1914-1923.” The shell-shocked soldier is one of the most familiar of the First World War. But what happened to women who experienced trauma? Dr. Keown's research deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and experience of war trauma among British and Irish women during the First World War and the potential for care they found in the war’s aftermath. In addition to her scholarship on war-related trauma, Dr. Keown is developing GSWS's Gender and Science curriculum and researching the history of kinship among gay and lesbian groups during the AIDS outbreak in the US and Ireland. Dr. Shaun Myers, Assistant Professor of English and affiliate faculty in the Center for African American Poetry and Poetics and GSWS “Geographic Potency: Transnational Visions of Black Women Writing.” This project tracks how black women writers such as June Jordan, Audre Lorde, Toni Cade Bambara, and Gloria Naylor generated what she terms geographic potency through acts of travel allowing them to somatically and imaginatively resituate themselves in the late Cold War world. Dr. Myers is currently completing a book project,“Black Anaesthetics:African American Literature Beyond Man,” which traces post humanism’s disavowed genealogies in black literature of the post- civil rights era.

These perpetrators exploit gaps in tribal jurisdictional authority and target Native women as ‘safe victims’. SISTERS RISING follows six women who refuse to let this pattern of violence continue in the shadows: a tribal cop in the midst of the North Dakota oil boom, an attorney fighting to overturn restrictions on tribal sovereignty, a teacher of Indigenous women’s self-defense, grassroots advocates working to influence legislative change, and the author of the first anti-sex trafficking code to be introduced to a reservation’s tribal court. Their stories shine an unflinching light on righting injustice on both an individual and systemic level. .Event page: http://www.chatham.edu/events/details.cfm?eventID=28193 Melody Harris m.harris@chatham.edu

Cooked: Survival by Zip Code tells the story of this tragic heatwave, the most traumatic in U.S. history, in which 739 citizens died over the course of just a single week, most of them poor, elderly, and African American. When peeled away from the shocking headlines the story reveals the less newsworthy but long-term crisis of pernicious poverty, economic, and social isolation and racism. Cooked is a story about life, death, and the politics of crisis in an American city that asks the question: Was this a one-time tragedy, or an appalling trend? .Event page: http://www.chatham.edu/events/details.cfm?eventID=28194 Stream on PBS (free, no code needed), Panel discussion via zoom Melody Harris m.harris@chatham.edu
