The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality is grateful to our faculty affiliates from across departments, divisions and schools who generously contribute their time and energies to the Center and its continued development.
Please join us on Friday, May 18 as we take the evening to celebrate recent books by some of the CSGS’s amazing faculty affiliates including:
Brillante Mendoza’s films immerse us in a hyper-real aesthetic of squalor with Filipinos who won’t stop trying to survive. I am concerned with formulating an ethical response to cinematic encounters across inequalities of authorship and spectatorship. When Brillante Mendoza refuses to give pleasure to the viewer, he forces us to question the basis of our identification with his images. Instead, the viewer must undergo self-destruction and trauma in a new form of watching and listening.
