"Post Racial Resistance-Black Women, Media, and the Uses of Strategic Ambiguity" speaks about how African American women, celebrities. cultural products, and audiences subversively used the tools of postracial discourse-- the media- propagated notion that race and race based discrimination are over-- in order to resist its very tenets.  Ralina Joseph is a Associate Professor at the University of Washington, is Director of the Center for Communication, Difference and Equity (CCDE). Dr. Joseph’s second book, Postracial Resistance: Black Women, Media Culture, and the…

January 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Humanities 1, Room 210, 1156 high st
Santa cruz, CA 95060 United States

An Alternative Legacy of Modernity” Insurgent Universality offers a new way of thinking political universality that radically differs from the legal universalism of human rights and cosmopolitanism. Assuming a conception of history that is not linear but articulated in a multiverse of historical temporalities, Insurgent Universality excavates an alternative trajectory of modernity, which originally bridges European and non-European political experiments. Massimiliano Tomba is professor of History of Consciousness Department at University of California, Santa Cruz. His work aims at reconsidering…

January 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Humanities 1, Room 210, 1156 high st
Santa cruz, CA 95060 United States

On the eve of International Women’s Day in 2015, the Chinese government arrested five feminist activists and jailed them for thirty-seven days. The Feminist Five became a global cause célèbre, with Hillary Clinton speaking out on their behalf and activists inundating social media with #FreetheFive messages.

Desmond Jagmohan: “Candor and Courage: Ida B. Wells and Fearless Speech”

February 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Humanities 1, Room 210, 1156 high st
Santa cruz, CA 95060 United States

“Candor and Courage: Ida B. Wells and Fearless Speech” This paper explicates Ida B. Wells’s argument that journalists and leaders have a moral obligation to speak fearlessly. To do so, I unearth the normative relationship between candor, courage, and duty underlying Wells’s anti-lynching editorials and reporting during the Progressive Era. First, I recount Wells’s argument that “yellow” and impartial journalism are, in different ways, responsible for the precipitous rise in the lynching of African Americans at the turn of the…

Sanctuary Practices Workshop

February 8 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Humanities 1, Room 210, 1156 high st
Santa cruz, CA 95060 United States

"Sanctuary and Medieval Kings" Key Note speaker: Elizabeth Allen  American nationalist discourse casts sanctuary as “illegal”, but actually the practice always bears a relation to the law: sanctuary cities, universities, and churches call law to account. Sanctuary has a long legal history. In the Middle Ages, felons could avoid death by running to the church, and kings bolstered their sacral power by protecting them. At the same time, those who seek sanctuary exerted an influence upon their kings “from below,”…

Chung began doing fieldwork on Maori, Tongan, and Samoan (all languages of the South Pacific) as an undergraduate. As a graduate student, she did fieldwork on Indonesian. Since 1977, the main empirical focus of her research has been Chamorro,…
