Why We Call It Terror: A New Way of Imagining Public Safety

Why We Call It Terror: A New Way of Imagining Public Safety

If we could over-incarcerate and over-police our way to public safety, we would be the safest country in the world.  We already do that more than any other country in the world and more than several countries combined. It is time for 21st century solutions to public safety that are rooted in prevention and not just criminalization, rooted in community-based, equity focused methodologies that actually protect communities, civil liberties, Oakland values of justice, equity and humanity and free up law enforcement to deal with violent crimes rather than being the answer to every social ill our community has.

Join us for this workshop featuring Cat Brooks, the Executive Director of the Justice Teams Network, a network of grassroots activists providing rapid response and healing justice in response to state violence across California. She recently ran for mayor of Oakland and has spent her life organizing to bring an end to unjust systems which sustain the privileges of the status quo.  We invite you to join us and stay for as long as you are able.

Who is Generation Z?
Mar

2:30 PM14:30

Who is Generation Z?

Determined. Open-Minded. Compassionate. These are just some of the many characteristics of Generation Z, those born from 1995 to 2010. Although some characteristics may look similar to the Millennial Generation, Generation Z brings a whole new set of attributes and experiences to higher education. But, our structures, curriculum, environments, processes, and pedagogies were likely developed with previous generations in mind. This new cadre of students is challenging us to re-conceptualize higher education to ensure we are providing the most meaningful and effective learning and engagement experiences possible. This session showcases the context within which members of Generation Z have come of age as well as their characteristics, motivations, values, and preferences. This keynote is followed by an interactive discussion on how to help enhance Generation Z’s college experience.

This workshop is meant for staff and faculty. Given that we have limited space for this workshop, please sign up HERE

Social Justice Film Series ft. The 40th Anniversary of Boulevard Nights and Car Show

5:00 PM17:00

Social Justice Film Series ft. The 40th Anniversary of Boulevard Nights and Car Show

Car Show : 3 PM Parking Lot D by Student Center

Reception: 5 - 5:45 PM: Student Center Grand Ballroom

5:45 PM: Film Panel: Student Center Grand Ballroom

6:30 PM: Film Screening: Student Center Grand Ballroom

Nearly forty years ago, a new Warner Bros. film entitled Boulevard Nights was released nationwide in theatres across the country. The story centered on a fatherless Mexican American family living in an unincorporated region of East Los Angeles, just east of Downtown L.A., steeped in gang culture. This family, consisting of two brothers and their hard working mother, is forced to come to terms with the choices made by the younger of the brothers who, seeking acceptance and a sense of identity becomes seduced by the gangster lifestyle.

At the time of it’s release, Boulevard Nightselicited a variety of reactions not only from the film industry, but from a broad spectrum of the social strata including politicians, law enforcement, educators, and Chicano activists. It’s greatest impact however, was on the Chicano Community itself. For the first time, a major Hollywood studio focused its attention on a disenfranchised section of Los Angeles less than ten miles from it’s legendary gates. A community rarely represented in mainstream media, be it television or motion pictures.

As we approach the fortieth anniversary of this iconic cinematic time capsule, the time is right to honor both the film, and its legacy, with a public screening followed by a Q&A with the remaining actors/filmmakers in association with Sonoma State University and the Sonoma Lowrider Council.

Boulevard Nights was the first major studio film to feature lowriding at the very center of its story. Lowriding is now respected and recognized internationally as a legitimate art form. Lowrider clubs have flourished and seen their numbers grow exponentially. The great majority of these clubs give back to their communities through fundraisers for a variety of worthy causes. Lowriding and community go hand in hand. Let us now cruise together, and celebrate this time honored connection. Starring Richard Yniguez, Danny De La Paz, Marta DuBois

In the Margin

In the Margin

Guess what? The HUB is starting a book club! It's called "In the Margin" and it’s for people who are often the only one in the room featuring novels from marginalized writers who don't often get the shine they deserve.Our first book is "There, There," by Tommy Orange which NPR describes as follows:

"Orange's story takes place in Oakland, Calif., and his title comes from the famous pronouncement about rootlessness that Gertrude Stein made when, as an adult, she revisited Oakland, her childhood home. "There is no there there," Stein said.

Orange knows the feeling and the terrain: He also grew up in Oakland and is enrolled in the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes of Oklahoma. But in There There, Orange wanted to do something more than fictionalize his own experience. Instead, his novel is composed of the stories of a bunch of Native and mixed-race characters, all of them eventually converging in a climactic scene at a big powwow in the Oakland Coliseum."

Grab a copy from the SSU library (audiobook available) or from the Sonoma County library and join us for a discussion about this wonderful novel!

“Master director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest film is a tour-de-force examination of guilt and justice. A young defense attorney is called in to help with what seems like the straightforward case of an admitted killer. Misumi (the incomparable Koji Yakusho) genially claims responsibility for the murder of a wealthy factory owner but his story shifts with alarming frequency. His odd behavior raises doubts for the pragmatic lawyer who begins to suspect that Misumi is hiding a more complicated truth.” - SFIFF (2017, 124 min., in Japanese w/English subtitles)  Free Admission

Queer Studies Lecture Series: T.J. Tallie, Occupying Spaces: Queer Theory, Indigeneity, and Settler Colonialism

This talk focuses on the history colonial South Africa to discuss the ways in which queer theory and indigenous studies allow us to understand the logics of settlement. Queer theory and indigenous studies allow us to unpack the conflicting desires at the heart of settler colonial collisions, revealing the creation of categories of race, gender and sexuality more clearly. Dr. Tallie is an Assistant Professor of African History at the University of San Diego. His forthcoming book, Queering Colonial Natal: Indigeneity and the Violence of Belonging in Southern Africa, uses queer theory and indigenous studies to study ideas of race, gender, and the body in the nineteenth-century settler colony of Natal. The Queer Studies Lecture Series is made possible thanks to the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, Queer Studies Minor, SSU Instructionally Related Activities Program, Campus Life, and the HUB.

Social Justice Film ft. The Shape of Water

Still at the peak of the space race and the Cold War in early-sixties Baltimore, Elisa Esposito, a forlorn and lonely mute woman, has a mundane daily routine as a night-time janitor in a top-secret underground research facility. With literally only two friends, Zelda, the solicitous co-worker who does all the talking for both of them, and Giles, her ageing painter neighbour, Elisa will find herself thrilled with the unexpected arrival of an Amazonian Amphibian Man at the cavernous corporation. Kept on a short leash inside a confined water tank, the mysterious scaly creature is, inevitably, the centre of attention; however, as an empathetic and almost mystical bond begins to timidly bloom between species, the very survival of this rare specimen lies in the hands of an improbable and frail saviour. But can there be a future when you are trapped? Starring,  Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon

Sonoma Film Institute presents, The Gleaners and I

Agnès Varda made 2000's most acclaimed non-fiction film - a self-described "wandering-road documentary." Beginning with the famous Jean-François Millet painting of women gathering wheat left over from a harvest, she focuses her ever-seeking eye on gleaners: those who scour already-reaped fields for the odd potato or turnip. Her investigation leads us from forgotten corners of the French countryside to off-hours at the green markets of Paris, following those who insist on finding a use for that which society has cast off, whether out of necessity or activism. Varda's own ruminations on her life as a filmmaker (a gleaner of sorts) give her a connection to her subjects that creates a touching human portrait that the L.A. Weekly deemed "a protest film that's part social critique, part travelogue, but always an unsentimental celebration of human resilience." (82 min., in French w/English subtitles)  Free Admission

Queer Studies Lecture Series: Trevor Hoppe, Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness

From the beginning of the epidemic, AIDS was linked to punishment. Calls to punish people living with HIV—mostly stigmatized minorities—began before doctors had even settled on a name for the disease. This talk explores how HIV was transformed from sickness to badness under the criminal law and investigates the consequences of inflicting penalties on people living with disease. Professor Hoppe’s Lambda Literary Award-winning book, Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness (University of California Press), analyzes the rise of punitive and coercive responses to HIV. The Queer Studies Lecture Series is made possible thanks to the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, Queer Studies Minor, SSU Instructionally Related Activities Program, Campus Life, and the HUB.

Queer Studies Lecture Series: Pidgeon Pagonis, Intersex Stories (Not Surgeries) – Resisting Intersex Pathologization

For over a century, intersex people had no voice in their medical “care” and “treatment.” Intersex Stories, Not Surgeries encourages participants to grapple with the ways in which the Medical Industrial Complex has violated intersex people’s human rights. As an activist, educator, and filmmaker, Pidgeon’s goal is to deconstruct the dangerous myths that lead to violations of intersex people’s rights, including medical procedures performed without consent to make bodies conform to binary sex stereotypes. In addition to this lecture, at 4 pm in the HUB, Pidgeon will hold a screening and Q&A on their short film, The Son I Never Had (2017), describing their discovery at 19 that they had been born intersex, and how, a decade later, they created this film as a “a love letter to my younger self and all of those trying to survive outside the binary.” The Queer Studies Lecture Series is made possible thanks to the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, Queer Studies Minor, SSU Instructionally Related Activities Program, Campus Life, and the HUB.

Sonoma Film Institute presents, Hale County This Morning, This Evening

“The American stranger knows Blackness as a fact—even though it is fiction,’ says writer-director RaMell Ross. For his visionary and political debut feature, which premiered to great acclaim at Sundance in 2018, Ross spent five years intimately observing African American families living in Hale County, Alabama. It’s a region made unforgettable by Walker Evans and James Agee’s landmark 1941 photographic essay Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which documented the impoverished lives of white sharecropper families in Alabama’s Dust Bowl during the Great Depression. Ross’s poetic return to this place shows changed demographics, and depicts people resilient in the face of adversity and invisibility. HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING introduces a distinct and powerful new voice in American filmmaking.” – New Directors/New Films (2018, 76 min.)  Free Admission

Director RaMell Ross will appear to introduce the film and for Q&A after this (Friday) screening.

Specializing in experimental performance, Barnes enjoys “bringing dance where it doesn’t belong” while Arrington’s work gravitates toward the “subversively political and accidentally hilarious.” In residency this spring, Landry is known for her powerful, mesmerizing choreography with contemporary, Middle Eastern and Afro-Caribbean influences.

The newly formed SSU Dance Alumni Collective “CCMC” also makes a guest appearance, presenting a new work at the final two performances April 27 and 28.

Sonoma Bach – Spring Returns An Affirming Flame

  • Schroeder Hall, Green Music Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

BachGrounder pre-concert talk at 7:25pm

Our concert design begins with two collections of miniatures—Leonhard Lechner’s Deutsche Sprüche von Leben und Tod (1606) and Hugo Distler’s Totentanz (c.1935)—separated by centuries, but complementary in their efforts to describe how the world works, and how to have hope. Each consists of tiny, koan-like pieces on a single thought or intuition. We weave these pieces together with larger motets from J.H. Schein’s magnificent Fontana d’Israel (1623) and organ meditations from Yale’s Neumeister manuscript by J.S. Bach and his cousin Johann Michael Bach. Over and again we are offered lessons of how to find light in the midst of gloom, and how to shine such light out to the world.

Queer Studies Lecture Series: Meliza Bañales, Adventure Awaits You in Hell: Coming Out in the 90s & the New Queer Radical

What some deem "the end times" have been the "all-the-time" times for LGBTQ people in the U.S. While many white Gays and Lesbians are enjoying more rights than ever, the BTQ and people-of-color are still fighting to simply be seen. Meliza Bañales aka Missy Fuego will serve as your tour guide through 90s San Francisco, sharing insights into what some have called an "extinct" identity: that of the Queer radical in the United States. Bañales, a literature professor at UC San Diego, is an author, curator, performer, advocate, & critic originally from Los Angeles. She is the author of three books and was a fixture in the Spoken-Word, Slam, and Queer artist communities of the San Francisco Bay Area from 1996-2012. She is currently writing a manifesto of survivorship. The Queer Studies Lecture Series is made possible thanks to the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, Queer Studies Minor, SSU Instructionally Related Activities Program, Campus Life, and the HUB.

Ms. Bob Davis, founder & director of the Louise Lawrence Transgender Archive, began writing about transgender history in the 1990s for transgender community publications such as Lady Like, Transgender Community News and Transgender Tapestry. She collaborated with Ardel Haefele-Thomas on the Introduction to Transgender Studies (Harrington Park Press, 2019).

Sonoma Film Institute presents, The Wild Pear Tree

“Palme d’Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s THE WILD PEAR TREE is an achingly beautiful portrait of an ambitious young writer returning home after college. Hoping to enjoy momentary solace in the company of nature’s calming indifference and with parents whose lives are already settled, Sinan finds only guilt in confrontations with the too-early failures of his past acquaintances and a loaded sense of responsibility toward his father’s worsening gambling addiction. This need to see his life as separate from those he left behind incites a rich and sprawling metanarrative on the self-centeredness essential to pursuing a life of creativity. At once languid and rhapsodic, THE WILD PEAR TREE is a profound and poetic look at youth misspent grasping at a maturity that, once attained, is revealed as the ultimate disappointment.” – Malin Kan, AFI Film Festival (2018, 188 min., in Turkish w/English subtitles) Free Admission

An Official Selection of the Berkeley Video & Film Festival (Grand Festival Award and Audience Award), the Sacramento Japanese Film Festival (Emerging Filmmaker Award), the Women’s Film Festival San Diego and the Boston Asian American Film Festival (Audience Choice Award for Feature Documentary), THE ITO SISTERScaptures the rarely told stories of the earliest Japanese immigrants to the United States and their American-born children.  The three sisters at the heart of the film – Nancy, Lillian and Hedy – offer a rare first-hand account of their family’s struggle to become American.  The family’s chronicle is set against the backdrop of the Anti-Japanese Movement, a 60-year campaign by politicians, journalists, landowners and others that culminated in the forced removal and incarceration of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast during World War II.  For more information, please visit: www.itosisters.com.


The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director & producer Antonia Grace Glenn, scholar Evelyn Nakano Glenn (UC Berkeley) & SSU President Judy Sakaki.
