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.

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.

Sonoma Bach – Spring Returns An Affirming Flame

  • Schroeder Hall, Green Music Center (map)

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. Tickets on sale at the Info and Tickets Desk at the Student Center or online at tickets.sonoma.edu

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.

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.
