CHECK IT: A DIALOGUE ON HOMONORMATIVITY
LGBT Resource Center
Conference Room. Wed, Dec 2. 5-7pm
Homonormativity? What exactly is homonormativity and
how does it look like within the LGBT community? Queer culture and queer
subjects in media produce norms that have the power of marginalizing people
within the LGBT community. I know it's Week 10, but take a break and come
discuss homonormativity and how it impacts the potential for progress within
the LGBT community and the agency we have in our own lives! If you have
any questions or comments, feel free to email Christopher Datiles
16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM WOMEN'S CENTER BLOG

international campaign originating from the first Women's Global Leadership
Institute sponsored by the Center for Women's Global Leadership in 1991.

Against Women and December 10, International Human Rights Day, in order to
symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that
such violence is a violation of human rights. This 16-day period also highlights
other significant dates including November 29, International Women Human Rights
Defenders Day, December 1, World AIDS Day, and December 6, which marks the
Anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.

RACE AND THE NEW BIOCITIZEN
PRESENTED BY DOROTHY ROBERS, Ph.D., SCHOOL OF LAW NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY
Cross-Cultural Center Comunidad.
Fri Dec 4. 3pm
Some writers have celebrated a new biological citizenship
arising from individuals' unprecedented ability to manage their health at the
molecular level. My lecture will examine the role of race in the construction
of the new biocitizen in light of the recent expansion of race-based
biotechnologies and neoliberal reliance on private resources for people's
welfare. I will critique how science, big business, and politics are converging
to support a molecularized understanding of race, health, and citizenship that
helps to preserve social inequities.
Part of the day's events will include a brown bag lunch
with Professors Dorothy Roberts and Kalindi Vora from Ethnic Studies on Friday,
Dec. 4 at 12:00pm in SSB-103. Participants will read an article published by
each guest speaker prior to this roundtable discussion.
Limited seating is available, please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
to receive electronic copies of the articles.
