We are excited to announce the Fall Quarter 2015 schedule for the Gender and Sexuality Studies Workshop. This quarter’s theme is “Playing in Relation,” curated by Prof. Patrick Jagoda (English). This workshop invites conversations about different cultural forms and technological platforms of play, including videogames, analog games, virtual worlds, toys, performances, playgrounds, and make-believe. How does play open up questions about affect, imagination, desire, and precariousness, especially among people at play together? How do various types of play — from power plays to sexual play to playing with identity — emerge from different cultural forms and impact understandings of gender and sexuality?
Please Note: Workshops will be held on alternate Tuesdays from 4:30 to 6:00pm in the first floor seminar room of 5733 S. University Avenue, unless otherwise noted.
Papers are made available in advance via our email list. If you are interested in joining the email list, go to http://lists.uchicago.edu/web/subscribe/sexuality-gender-wkshp or contact the workshop coordinators, Annie Heffernan and Rebecca Oh, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
