How to Shoot an Iraqi: U.S. Drone Strikes and Wafaa Bilal’s Queer Calculus of Pain

When: Thursday, March 8, 2012

Time: 2:00 PM

Where: Rec Center Conference Rooms 3-4

This talk examines the performance art of Iraqi American artist Wafaa Bilal, illuminating how South Asian, Muslim and Arab diasporic expressive cultures challenge conventional “expert” approaches to terrorism, militarism and war. As opposed to statistical modes through which the collateral damage of war is calculated, this talk shows how diasporic cultural forms expose another calculus—a queer calculus of bodies in pain and of bodies that imagine alternatives to that pain.
Co-Sponsored by the Women & Gender Studies Program, the GLBTQ Resource Center, the Dept. of Ethnic Studies, the Dept. of English & The Dept. of Theatre & Dance.

Word Verses World Poetry Slam

If you have something to say, say it like you mean it @ this MONTHLY Open Mic! Started 2|2|12 @ 6:30PM
Artists seeking different forms of expression together to form a great outlet for creativity! More often than not thoughts and feelings just remain on the page or in their first form. Not anymore.Let the subject matter range anywhere from personal to political, anger, hope, love, passion; bring your guitar, tap a beat with your drums, sing your poems, dance to the words you’re reciting. You have a lot to say and now you have a conscious, artful, community-oriented place, to share your thoughts.

Provides an opportunity for artists and audience a chance to reflect on the words being shared, which can often mean very different things based on life-experiences. This is a place where everyone can feel welcome to speak their truths and never feel persecuted for their stories. 

Come and share your voice and your heart to fellow poets, or just come and be inspired by the words that your fellow peeps are speaking. Everyone is welcome to come, share, listen, bring a friend, or two, or three, and find other people eager to uncover vocal expression.

Directions: To help you find The We’re House, please take note of the directions below. It’s right near Avery Brewing. Turn right after the Car Wash Open sign. 
Keep STRAIGHT until you see HUGE SILVER brewing bins on the RIGHT.
Turn RIGHT in the alley BEFORE you reach them.

Area is well lit! Signs will be up! There will be plenty of FREE parking!
