Unsettling Monuments of Latinx Masculinity in Estela Portillo-Trambley's "Rain of Scorpions"
Francisco Robles (English)

Wednesday, October 24 | 12-1pm
339 O’Shaughnessy Hall

In this paper, I consider Estela Portillo Trambley's "Rain of Scorpions" novella and its critiques of Chicanx masculinity as contained in radical-revolutionary political movements. I am also interested in examining how the novella, as part of Portillo Trambley's Rain of Scorpions short story collection, offers an undoing of the logics of the young man's bildungsroman or the tropes of developing masculine consciousness in many Chicano publications of the 1960s and 1970s. This paper is also a partial recovery of and engagement with the early critical work on Portillo Trambley, an author whose writings have largely been ignored in current conversations about Chicanx Literature, while also considering how decoloniality, as a critical lens, might lead to a renewed appreciation and reinvigoration of those early conversations.   F.

How to Survive a Plague (2012)

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Directed by David France 
With Larry Kramer, David Barr, Jim Eigo 
Not Rated, 110 minutes, Blu-ray 

A recent Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary, How To Survive A Plague is the story of the young men and women, largely from the LGBTQ+ community, who successfully reversed the tide of the AIDS epidemic, demanded the attention of a fearful nation, and stopped the disease from becoming a death sentence. With no scientific training, these activists infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, identifying promising new medication and treatments and moving them through trials and into drugstores in record time. In the process, they saved their own lives and ended the darkest days of a veritable plague.

“Fantastical . . . wrenching . . . obsession becomes a way to process grief.” —Helena Fitzgerald, Rolling Stone

“Unflinching but also irrepressibly humorous. [Myles’s] grief at losing Rosie is profound; it is also a revelation . . . Myles possesses, in abundance, two qualities of the highest value for a writer, irreverence and relentless curiosity, and here both are on full display."—Sigrid Nunez, New York Times Book Review

Driving for the first time in years, she begins to provide a local taxi service to a group of elderly wealthy ladies. As Chela settles into her new life, she encounters the much younger Angy, forging a fresh and invigorating new connection.

In 1984, an LGBT community group meets in London to discuss their discontentment with the new laws and (de)regulations handed down by the Margaret Thatcher government. Noting similar threats from the Thatcher government to miners, the London LGBT group finds itself in the Welsh village of Onllwyn, the ground zero of mining strikes and pit closures. The labor and LGBT communities search for common ground in fighting for equality as some homespun intersectional activism forms.

Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower by Brittney Cooper

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
339 O'Shaughnessy

Eloquent Rage

Far too often, Black women’s anger has been caricatured into an ugly and destructive force that threatens the civility and social fabric of American democracy. In the Black feminist tradition of Audre Lorde, however, Brittney Cooper shows us in Eloquent Rage that there is more to the story than that. Black women’s eloquent rage is what makes Serena Williams such a powerful tennis player, what makes Beyoncé’s girl power anthems resonate so hard, and what makes Michelle Obama an icon. In what Joy Reid calls “a dissertation on Black women’s pain and possibility,” Eloquent Rage argues that anger is a powerful source of energy that can give Black women strength. Along with feminism, friendship, and faith in one's own superpowers, homegirls can emerge as heroes.…
