In our time of unprecedented instrumentalization and transformation of earthly and worldly processes, from the scale of the body to the planet, the Earth-Writing Symposium returns to the question of geography as the praxis of Earth-writing.

Hymen exams and anal exams are part of the interface of sexual regulation in contemporary Lebanon. In this talk I trace the legal and similarities and differences between these exams, and argue that both anal and hymen exams regulate and produce sexual difference in terms of a sex binary and in terms of a difference in sexualities.

Using excerpts from Mujeres Pacíficas (mujerespacificas.org), a digital storytelling project in collaboration with Afro-Colombian women activists, I will explore the utopian character of survival in a postconflict that has yet to materialize. These stories portray how survival manifests in everyday practicesfrom showing up to care-taking, and not in massive resistance actions. I move away from... More >

Caren Kaplan, Professor of American Studies, University of California, Davis
At the close of the First Gulf War, feminist architectural historian Beatriz Colomina wrote that war today speaks about the difficulty of establishing the limits of domestic space. That conflict of 1990-91 is most often cited as the first to pull the waging of war fully into the digital age and therefore into a blurring of boundaries of all kinds.

Vernadette Vicuña Gonzalez, Associate Professor of American Studies, Honors Program Director, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
The "Detours" project takes seriously the power of form, and the reading practices and publics produced by the genre of the guidebook, which manifest the fantasy of Hawaii as an exotic island destination for the consumption of tourists. "Detours" deliberately perverts the guidebook to produce alternative narratives, tours, itineraries, mappings and images of the islands as well as concrete... More >

Wikimedias race and gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of participation by women and underrepresented groups. This adds up to an alarming absence in an important repository of shared knowledge.

Criminal Queers visualizes a radical trans/queer struggle against the prison industrial complex and toward a world without walls.

This talk examines representations of Muslim women in the U.S. news media post-9/11/01, focusing on how Muslim women became sites of public sympathy and moral outrage. It argues that the logics central to the War on Terror are not possible without their accompanying affects, showing how Muslim women are designated as worthy of feeling while Muslim men are not.
