1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Reading with Julie Maybee: Making and Unmaking Disability

In this brave new theoretical approach to human physicality, Julie E. Maybee traces societal constructions of disability and impairment through Western history along three dimensions of embodiment: the personal body, the interpersonal body, and the institutional body. Each dimension has played a part in defining people as disabled and impaired in terms of employment, healthcare, education, and social and political roles.

Because impairment and disability have been constructed along all three of these bodies, unmaking disability and making the future accessible will require restructuring Western institutions, including capitalism, changing how social roles are assigned, and transforming our deepest beliefs about impairment and disability to reconstruct people as capable. Ultimately, Maybee suggests, unmaking disability will require remaking our world.

Julie Maybee is Chair of the Philosophy Department, Professor of Philosophy, and the Director of the Interdisciplinary Disabilities Studies Program at Lehman College. 

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Featuring a cast of fictional and historically-based characters across several centuries including Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud, Pontius Pilate, Satan, and Jesus, Guirgis’ play confronts contemporary issues of class, race, and gender, and how Western Eurocentric culture has appropriated and distorted the legacy and meaning of these iconic figures, their actions, and words.

Ecstatic Disobedience: Gender Embodiment in Hip Hop, House, and Vogue


Α
pril 28, 2021
: Wendell «ΜΧ» Cooper, Assistant Professor, Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre and Dance

 

 Ecstatic Disobedience: Gender Embodiment in Hip Hop, House, and Vogue

 

Mx. Oops aka Wendell Cooper will examine how Breakin’, House Dance, and Vogue Femme simultaneously critique gender expression norms and expand beyond them. Each dance form is based on a series of foundational movement elements, each borrowing from movement traditions with gendered histories — Salsa, Jazz, Capoeira, and more. By looking at how these Urban Dance forms remix fixed notions of masculinity and femininity, we will unpack their methodology of liberation.

A 2-Part Workshop Series

 

Facilitated by Sophia Hsu, PhD and Sarah Ohmer, PhD

 

APPLICATIONS DUE APRIL 11, 2021

Day 1: April 30, 2021, 10am-1pm

Vulnerability and Compassion in Activist Scholarship and    Writing Pedagogy

How do we create life-giving spaces in the midst of a global pandemic and social injustice? How do vulnerability and compassion help to sustain activist scholarship and writing pedagogy in public higher education? Participants will identify concrete sites of anti-racist action in our day-to-day environments, academic or otherwise, and practice self-reflective writing (in part with the goal of preparing to engage our students in these same practices). We will share practices and projects we are developing in the midst of a global pandemic, 
white supremacy, homophobia, and transphobia, and discuss sustainable implementation. Dedicated quiet writing time will helpparticipants to move forward on current anti-racist projects.

 

Day 2: May 14, 2021, 10am-1pm Putting Anti-Racist Dreams in Practice



What are our dream visions for higher education, scholarship, teaching, and institutional environments? What resources do we need to make our dream work happen? Participants will expand on the ideas and projects they worked on in the previous session and engage in strategic planning to realize future ideas and projects. We will practice setting realistic and measurable goals in alignment with our personal and professional needs. Dedicated 
quiet writing time will help participants to move forward on current anti-racist projects, and to set concrete steps for the summer and the following academic year
.

A small stipend will be offered to all participants.

 

All current Lehman College faculty members are welcome to apply. Applicants must commit to attending all twoworkshops. Due to the limited budget, we will prioritize applications that show demonstrated engagement in and/or specific ideas for developing projects or curricula that reference people of color’s scholarship and activism, focused on topics of anti-racism, intersectionality, social justice, and/or restorative justice.

Anti-Racism and Radical Care Across the Curriculum: Activism in the Classroom, Scholarship, and the Institution

Lehman College Writing Across the Curriculum Announces:

Anti-Racism 
and 
Radical Care Across the Curriculum: Activism in the  Classroom, Scholarship, and the Institution

A 2-Part Workshop Series

 

Facilitated by Sophia Hsu, PhD and Sarah Ohmer, PhD

 

APPLICATIONS DUE APRIL 11, 2021

 

 

  • How have the past year’s events affected your teaching, scholarship, and self-care practices?
  •  
  • How does anti-racism, self-care, pleasure activism, and Black joy shape your teaching and/or scholarship?

  • How do you sustain or embark in activist scholarship and writing pedagogy in public higher education?

 

Day 1: April 30, 2021, 10am-1pm

Vulnerability and Compassion in Activist Scholarship and    Writing Pedagogy

How do we create life-giving spaces in the midst of a global pandemic and social injustice? How do vulnerability and compassion help to sustain activist scholarship and writing pedagogy in public higher education? Participants will identify concrete sites of anti-racist action in our day-to-day environments, academic or otherwise, and practice self-reflective writing (in part with the goal of preparing to engage our students in these same practices). We will share practices and projects we are developing in the midst of a global pandemic, 
white supremacy, homophobia, and transphobia, and discuss sustainable implementation. Dedicated quiet writing time will helpparticipants to move forward on current anti-racist projects.

 

Day 2: May 14, 2021, 10am-1pm Putting Anti-Racist Dreams in Practice



What are our dream visions for higher education, scholarship, teaching, and institutional environments? What resources do we need to make our dream work happen? Participants will expand on the ideas and projects they worked on in the previous session and engage in strategic planning to realize future ideas and projects. We will practice setting realistic and measurable goals in alignment with our personal and professional needs. Dedicated 
quiet writing time will help participants to move forward on current anti-racist projects, and to set concrete steps for the summer and the following academic year
.

A small stipend will be offered to all participants.

 

All current Lehman College faculty members are welcome to apply. Applicants must commit to attending all twoworkshops. Due to the limited budget, we will prioritize applications that show demonstrated engagement in and/or specific ideas for developing projects or curricula that reference people of color’s scholarship and activism, focused on topics of anti-racism, intersectionality, social justice, and/or restorative justice.

 

To send an application, use the link in the flyer. 

 

Priority deadline: April 11, 2021

 

For more information, contact Vani Kannan, WAC Co-Coordinator.
