What Will You Remember When I'm Gone?

October 28 at 10:00 AM - November 25, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Charles Pansirna was the go-to photographer in Chicago’s Lithuanian community between 1916 and 1953. His portraits of weddings, babies, and funerals were the pride of immigrants building a life in America. It can be detected in shots of workers at their factory jobs, families at leisure in the park, or portraits of WWI soldiers dressed to go “over there.” Decidedly, these photos were taken for remembrance, but what is it that we recall? This exhibition examines a cross-section of the 1500+ Pansirna photos housed at Purdue Galleries in order to answer that question.

Two contemporary photographers have been invited to show their work as a compliment and counterpoint to the narrative of pride and tradition. Artist Owen Mundy examines his “military family tree” through its military portraits, revealing the construction of military family imagery. Min Kim Park’s postmodern mother-daughter portraits question how much traditional portraiture leaves off the record. Pansirna’s photos give us much to recall from history, but upon close examination we begin to wonder just how much we have forgotten.

WGSS- Spring 2015- Masculinities

October 30 at 12:00 AM - November 28, 2014 at 12:00 AM

What does it mean to claim that there are multiple masculinities circulating and competing with one another in both the present day and throughout history? Where do we locate these masculinities-­- in social practices, in bodies or in cultural representations from movies and television? What is the relationship between the study of men and masculinities and existing feminist projects? Ultimately, students from any discipline will find productive opportunities to apply the study of masculinity to work in their majors, while also learning how research is conducted in other fields.

Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies 499- Spring 2015- Women & War

October 30 at 12:00 AM - November 28, 2014 at 12:00 AM

This interdisciplinary course uses feminist analysis to examine the roles and representations of women in war-making and peace-building in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Although women have always been a part of war – as soldiers, nurses, mothers, gue-rilla fighters, military wives, sex workers, peace activists, and refu-gees – their experiences and participation are often marginalized or erased by media and history. Lecture and discussion will interrogate how intersections of gender, race, class, sexuality, and nationality inform women’s experiences of key institutions like the military and United Nations. Through a variety of texts, including literature, mem-oir, policy, and film, students will explore the ways in which war, mili-tarism, and peace-keeping are highly gendered and why women’s participation in matters of national and global security is crucial in the fight for human rights.

Gender, Media & Popular Culture- WGSS 499- Dr. Cheryl Cooky

October 30 at 12:00 AM - November 28, 2014 at 12:00 AM

The course oers students a critical feminist interrogation of popular culture. Drawing upon feminist cultural/ media studies heories and frameworks, the course will focus not only contemporary popular cultural artifacts (such as Mad Men, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, “Lean In”, Flava of Love) for their representations, meanings, and discourses, but will also consider how young girls and women negotiate discourses on gender, sexuality, and race in and through their relationships with popular culture. The signicance of popular culture to feminism and feminist movement(s) will also be explored.

Quilt National '13

November 24 at 12:00 AM - December 09, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Quilt National is a biennial juried competition dedicated to the promotion of the contemporary art quilt. It is a showcase for new work produced in the two-year span prior to the exhibition. Its focus is to provide the viewer with a visual presentation of innovative trends in the medium of layered and stitched fabric.

The works in a Quilt National exhibit display a reverence for the lessons taught by the makers of the heritage quilts. Many of the works hold fast to the traditional methods of piecing and patching. At the same time, however, the Quilt National artist is intrigued by the challenge of expanding the boundaries of traditional quiltmaking by utilizing the newest materials and technologies. These innovative works generate strong emotional responses in the viewer while at the same time fulfilling the creative need of the artist to make a totally individual statement.

This exhibit is presented in collaboration with the Center for Families at Purdue University, in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
