 Department of Gender and Women's Studies

This lecture is drawn from Rey Chow’s chapter in the anthology Sound Objects (Duke UP, forthcoming), ed. James A. Steintrager and Rey Chow. By foregrounding crucial connections among sound studies, poststructuralist theory, and contemporary acousmatic experiences, the lecture presents listening as a trans-disciplinary problematic through which different fields of study resonate in fascinating ways.

Lecture | October 25 | 5-7 p.m. | Wheeler Hall, Maude Fife Room, 315 Wheeler

 Melissa Sanchez, Department of English, Univ. of Pennsylvania

 Department of English

Shakespeare’s Sonnets register the development of a fiction of somatic, heritable whiteness as a correlate of respectable sexuality, one disseminated in Renaissance celebrations of classical male friendship and imperial allegories of sexual conquest. Yet in their depiction of the entanglements among the poetic speaker, a “fair” young man, a “black” mistress, and unnamed others, the Sonnets...   More >

Expendables For Whom?: Terry Crews, Phallicism, and the Erasure of Black Male Victims of Sexual Assault and Rape

 Tommy J. Curry, Professor, Texas A&M Philosophy

 Department of English, Department of Ethnic Studies, Center for Race and Gender, Department of African American Studies

The sexual assault of Terry Crews by Adam Venit raises all sorts of questions about the nature of sexual violence and our reluctance to see Black men as victims of sexual assault in the United States. Despite a history of Black men and boys being raped by white men and women, there is no effort to connect the centuries long record of sexual violence against Black males to the sexual victimization...   More >
