Just Calm Down!bravespace   

By Edwina Welch  


In the past month I have noticed a steady increase in people snapping at each other, virulent Facebook posts, and just a general "snarky-ness." I have been chalking it up to a regular spring manifestation when so many changes are taking place- seniors graduating, friends leaving, campus events that bring up political and social debates. But maybe the mood is something more?. - Read more

Empire's Proxy: American Literature & U.S. Imperialism in the Philippines       

Wednesday | May 9 | 2pmmegwesling 

CCC Library   


Drawing on a wealth of material, including historical records, governmental documents from the War Department and the Bureau of Insular Affairs, curriculum guides, memoirs of American teachers in the Philippines, and 19th century literature, Meg Wesling not only links empire with education, but also demonstrates that the rearticulation of American literary studies through the imperial occupation in the Philippines served to actually define and strengthen the field. Empire's Proxy boldly argues that the practical and ideological work of colonial dominance figured into the emergence of the field of American literature, and that the consolidation of a canon of American literature was intertwined with the administrative and intellectual tasks of colonial management.

"Werkin' It: Chubby Queers of Color"chubby
Thursday | May 10 | 5pm
CCC Comunidad

"Body image is a big part of mainstream media that often pathologizes and limits the experiences of Chubby, Fat and Big bodies. Let's move beyond these limiting ideals of 'Fat Acceptance' towards a rhetoric of self-love and appreciation of one's worth. Chubby Queers of Color are sexy and Fierce! Big bodies can handle, and WERQ it too!". View flyer

"Asian American Racial Realities in Black & White" w/ Prof. Bruce Hoskinshoskins
Friday | May 11 | 3pm
CCC Comuniad

What does it mean for an Asian American to be part white or part black? Bruce Hoskins probes the experience of biracial Asian Americans, revealing the ways that our discourse about multiracial identities too often reinforces racial hierarchies. Hoskins explores the everyday lives of people of Asian/white and Asian/black heritage to uncover the role of our society s white-black continuum in shaping racial identity. Mixing intimate personal stories with cutting-edge theoretical analysis, he directly confronts the notion that multiracial identity provides an easy solution for our society s racial stratification.
