Scholarship is frequently imagined as a solitary pursuit, done mostly in archives or with books. This CHI Salon will feature scholars pursuing alternatives to this model and who regularly publish scholarship that emerges out of community activism, who co-write or co-edit books, and who actively seek out and create new models of authorship and research. Amherst Presidential Scholar Karma Chávez (UT-Austin) and Amherst College Press authors Megan Jeanette Myers (Iowa State) and Edward Paulino (John Jay) discuss their past publication experiences and the opportunities and challenges of collaborative scholarship. This panel is in honor of Open Access Week 2022 (Oct. 24-30).

Aizura, Aimee Bahng, Mishuana Goeman, and Amber Jamilla Musser, NYU Press), Standing in the Intersection: Feminist Voices, Feminist Practices in Communication Studies (with Cindy L. Griffin, SUNY Press) and Text + Field: Innovations in Rhetorical Method (Penn State University Press).

The drought in California continues for another year and CSULB is making efforts to become more sustainable on campus. Over the summer, the Long Beach Water Department implemented water restrictions to aid in the conservation of water across California. CSULB has added features on campus to follow these regulations such as a sprinkler irrigation system on campus that detects rain and will automatically shut off after a certain amount of rainfall. Additionally, CSULB is conserving energy through the use of solar panels and energy-efficient LED lights.

We all think we know the South. Even those who have never lived there can rattle off a list of signifiers: the Civil War, Gone with the Wind, the Ku Klux Klan, plantations, football, Jim Crow, slavery. But the idiosyncrasies, dispositions, and habits of the region are stranger and more complex than much of the country tends to acknowledge. Today's guest is Imani Perry, discussing her latest book South To America: A Journey Below the Mason-Dixon Line. Perry is a scholar of law, literary and cultural studies, and an author of creative nonfiction. She is the Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University and a faculty associate with the Programs in Law and Public Affairs, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Jazz Studies. In South To America Imani Perry shows that the meaning of ‘American' is inextricably linked with the South, and that our understanding of its history and culture is the key to understanding the nation as a whole. South to America offers an assertion that if we want to build a more humane future for the United States, we must center our concern below the Mason-Dixon Line.

SHElection!: Ohio's 13th Congressional District

Ohio 13 might be the most competitive congressional SHElection! match up in the country right now. The race for Ohio's 13th Congressional district is between Ohio State representative Emilia Sykes and Trump-backed attorney Madison Gesiotto Gilbert, who disagree on everything from the economy to abortion to who won the 2020 election... Trump was able to carry Ohio both in 2016 and 2020 by about eight points. Until 2022, because of redistricting, Akron was broken apart, diluting its power and leaving political representation in the hands of people with less of a connection to the area. This cycle, Akron and nearby Summit City are fully intact on the redrawn maps, making over half of this voting district (51%) Democrat and 47% Republican. Most national polling deems the race a toss-up, but an early October FiveThirtyEight poll showed Gesiotto Gilbert with an "85 % chance of winning." Gesiotto Gilbert, was Miss Ohio USA in 2014. She's married to Marcus Gilbert, the former NFL offensive tackle, and notably, she gave birth during the campaign cycle. Gesiotto Gilbert used to author a column about millennial politics called The Millennial Mindset at the Washington Times. She has no legislative record to uncover given that fact that she's never served in office, but she does have an interesting professional life as a conservative attorney and self-described business owner. According to POLITICO, last year, she reported earning $24,000 as a contributor to conservative media outlet, The First. Gesiotto Gilbert also lists herself as the owner of a pageant consultancy called Pageant Precision. The consultancy's website no longer operates, and social media findings show that the company hasn't posted anything since 2017. POLITICO also reports that the Gilberts own The Gesiotto Gilbert Foundation, which the couple launched a week before Gesiotto Gilbert declared her candidacy. It describes itself as an organization “dedicated to cultivating the benevolent power of communities across Ohio and strengthening the state through innovative community initiatives, programs and services.” It also has no website, and state business filings list Pageant Precision as its mailing address.  Ohio state representative Emilia Sykes comes from a family of politicians. Sykes mother, Barbara, served on city council and in the Ohio House; her father as a state senator. Indeed, a Sykes has represented some part of Akron, Ohio for more than 4 decades now. In 2014, Emilia Sykes became the first Black woman under 30 to join the Ohio State House. She served as Minority Leader of the Ohio House and started an organization called #WeBelongHere to emphasize the importance of Black women's political representation. Anna Starver, political reporter for USA Today's Ohio Bureau, noted that Sykes has signed legislation into law that deals with women's issues in particular. She had a bill come to law that allows victims of dating violence to get protective orders during the pandemic, pushed for Ohio lawmakers to prioritize helping Black Ohioans, and in policymaking, she focuses on things like health care.  Both young women are seen as potentially future leaders in their parties, but does this similarity neutralize gender as a factor in the race? We hear from Wendy Smooth, Senior Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence and a Professor of Women's Gender and Sexuality Studies at the Ohio State University and Anna Staver, a political reporter for USA Today network's Ohio Bureau.

If we want to understand America today, we must first understand the South. This is both a central premise of Imani Perry's latest book, South to America: A Journey Below the Mason-Dixon to Understand the Soul of a Nation, which is a finalist for the 2022 National Book Award for Nonfiction, and a proposition she explores in depth in this episode of Book Dreams. During her conversation with Eve and Julie, Imani illuminates the connections between Southern history and pivotal aspects of contemporary American society–everything from the overturning of Roe v. Wade, to episodes of mass violence, to the treatment of immigrants at the border. She also makes the case that the South could have a better claim to the name “Heartland of America” than the Midwest, because “the way Americans relate to the use of land and labor is so shaped by the South.” Imani vividly conveys, too, a duality that has pervaded the South over the course of its history, particularly for those oppressed there: on the one hand, grief, pain, and atrocity; on the other, joy, vibrancy, and beauty. “I spent a lot of time,” she says, “thinking about how much the violence of the country was associated with sources of pleasure: … slavery, and rum and tobacco and sugar. … Then there's also the fact of people who have lived incredibly hardscrabble lives, through dispossession and also, you know, the South has been home to the deepest poverty and many forms of exploitation. And from that people have tapped into their humanity to create incredible beauty and meaning.” A professor who has taught both history and law, Imani also explains why the Supreme Court's recent tethering of the constitution to the “intent of the founding fathers” is both bad history and bad law. Imani Perry is the Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University and a faculty associate with the Programs in Law and Public Affairs, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Jazz Studies. Her prior books include Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry, which won the 2019 Bograd Weld Award for Biography from the PEN America Foundation and the Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Non-Fiction and was a New York Times notable book, among other accolades. She's also the author of Breathe: A Letter to My Sons, a Kirkus best nonfiction book of 2019 and a finalist for the NAACP Image Award in Nonfiction; Vexy Thing: On Gender and Liberation; and May We Forever Stand: A History of the Black National Anthem, also a finalist for the NAACP Image Award in Nonfiction.

In The Terrible We: Thinking with Trans Maladjustment (Duke UP, 2022), Cameron Awkward-Rich thinks with the bad feelings and mad habits of thought that persist in both transphobic discourse and trans cultural production. Observing that trans studies was founded on a split from and disavowal of madness, illness, and disability, Awkward-Rich argues for and models a trans criticism that works against this disavowal. By tracing the coproduction of the categories of disabled and transgender in the United States at the turn of the twentieth century and analyzing transmasculine literature and theory by Eli Clare, Elliott DeLine, Dylan Scholinski, and others, Awkward-Rich suggests that thinking with maladjustment might provide new perspectives on the impasses arising from the conflicted relationships among trans, feminist, and queer. In so doing, he demonstrates that rather than only impeding or confining trans life, thought, and creativity, forms of maladjustment have also been and will continue to be central to their development.

Since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in the custody of Iran's morality police on September 16th, protests have erupted throughout Iran and in some 160 cities around the globe — with some of the biggest protests happening here in Canada. Despite violent crackdowns on the demonstrations in Iran, protesters are still coming out to the streets. And women have remained at the forefront, at times burning their headscarves, or chopping off their hair. But this is far from the first time that women have led protest movements in the country. So today we're taking a look at how the Mahsa Amini demonstrations fit into a long history of women's activism in Iran — and whether or not this time feels different. Our guest is Mona Tajali, an associate professor of International Relations, and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Agnes Scott College. She's also the author of the recent book Women's Political Representation in Iran and Turkey: Demanding a Seat at the Table.

Right away she opens up about the writing process and explains what it was like to go from Under the Rainbow, a novel made up of short stories, to So Happy For You, a novel that centers on one character. So Happy For You is a satirical dystopic novel that pokes holes in the wedding industry while also delivering a fast paced queer psychological thriller...think Margaret Atwood meets Ruth Ware! Because Andrew and Mary know Celia from their Under the Rainbow discussion, the three waste no time in discussing Celia's love of queer thrillers (Micah Nemerever and PJ Vernon we're looking at you) and whether Celia has read psychological thrillers by Ruth Ware, Gillian Flynn, A.J. Finn, or Paula Hawkins. Why does Celia think So Happy For You is more cinematic than Under the Rainbow? And is it being developed into a film?

Then, she's joined by Doctor Heather Berg as they dive right into her class-based analysis of porn and sex work, and how she came to this field of study, walking through the field's historical focus on consumption and representation in the industry despite the intrigue Dr. Berg found in the grey market nature of the work, occasionally being criminalized and always a precarious element of the gig economy, leading her to look to the void of worker commentary on working conditions in the industry. After a brief conversation on the (unsurprisingly) laborious and mundane nature of this labor, and how it departs from other gig industries (much easier to work for oneself), Dr. Heather Berg and Emma walk through the history of porn and sex work in the US, beginning in the 1970s' supposed “golden age” of porn, and why, despite the heralding of pieces like “Deep Throat” and “The Devil in Miss Jones,” the majority of pornographic productions in this era saw lower-budget films with lower-quality working conditions, before the switch to video in the 1980s saw profits soar, with better pay being met with longer work weeks and more hardcore productions meaning greater physical labor (and more anti-porn backlash from Christian fundamentalists). Alongside the video boom, the HIV/AIDS epidemic saw the beginnings of organizing in the industry, as sex workers and porn stars saw themselves at the forefront of the public health efforts, creating their own standards of testing across the industry, leading up to the digital boom of the 1990s, where a mass increase in piracy (largely supported by the production elements of the industry) saw workers' claims to the fruits of their labor start to vanish, with companies like Pornhub springing up to centralize the production with limited redistribution of profits and offering a blueprint for the more clearly “gig” work of Onlyfans that would come about a couple of decades later. Wrapping up, Dr. Berg and Emma tackle the state of the industry today, exploring how the discriminatory policies and pay around certain identities come from the ingrained standards of the late 20th Century, the efforts of organizations such as BIPOC Adult Industry Collective not only to make demands of management but to provide the infrastructure for workers to become completely independent from management, and why the issues around working conditions in sex work and porn are not due to their nature as “sex” but their nature as work. And in the Fun Half: Emma discusses Biden finally being pushed to do the bare minimum to address the student debt crisis (hitting both means-testing and grant-specific qualifiers), before Kowalski from Nebraska shares his take on the 10-20k in relief. Emma and the crew also tackle the brief fall of Andrew Tate, walking through Hasan's debate with him, and James from Fort Worth explores book banning and Christian fundamentalism in schools. Jamaal Bowman has an expert response to the NY Democratic Party pitting progressives against each other, and Denis Prager endorses a Naz-so-bad slogan called the three Ks. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Dr. Cifor analyzes the various power structures through which these archives are mediated, demonstrating how ideology shapes the nature of archival material and how it is accessed and used. Positioning vital nostalgia as both a critical faculty and a generative practice, this book explores the act of saving this activist past and reanimating it in the digital age.

Throughout this podcast, we have discussed the ways in which sexual harm impacts survivors psychologically, emotionally, and physically. A less talked about consequence stems from abuse that occurs within the context of institutional environments that are expected to be safe.  In this episode we speak to Dr. Caroline Heldman an expert on the consequences of sexual harm that takes place within institutional environments. Institutional betrayal refers to the harm that an institution does to those who depend on it. As you will hear, this betrayal can be explicit policies or when an institution fails to respond to sexual harm. This is often seen in the context of college campuses, the military, and religions organizations.  Additional Readings and Resources: Faculty Against Rape The Hunting Ground End Rape on Campus The New Campus Anti-Rape Movement: Internet Activism and Social Justice – Caroline Heldman, Alissa R.

New Books in Gender Studies
Maya Mikdashi, "Sextarianism: Sovereignty, Secularism, and the State in Lebanon" (Stanford UP, 2022)

The Lebanese state is structured through religious freedom and secular power sharing across sectarian groups. Every sect has specific laws that govern kinship matters like marriage or inheritance. Together with criminal and civil laws, these laws regulate and produce political difference. But whether women or men, Muslims or Christians, queer or straight, all people in Lebanon have one thing in common—they are biopolitical subjects forged through bureaucratic, ideological, and legal techniques of the state. With this book, Maya Mikdashi offers a new way to understand state power, theorizing how sex, sexuality, and sect shape and are shaped by law, secularism, and sovereignty. Drawing on court archives, public records, and ethnography of the Court of Cassation, the highest civil court in Lebanon, Mikdashi shows how political difference is entangled with religious, secular, and sexual difference. She presents state power as inevitably contingent, like the practices of everyday life it engenders, focusing on the regulation of religious conversion, the curation of legal archives, state and parastatal violence, and secular activism. Sextarianism: Sovereignty, Secularism, and the State in Lebanon (Stanford UP, 2022) locates state power in the experiences, transitions, uprisings, and violence that people in the Middle East continue to live. Maya Mikdashi is Associate Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and a Lecturer in the Middle East Studies Program at Rutgers University. Alize Arıcan is an anthropologist whose research focuses on urban renewal, futurity, care, and migration in Istanbul, Turkey. Her work has been featured in Current Anthropology, City & Society, JOTSA, Radical Housing Journal, and entanglements. You can find her on Twitter @alizearican Learn more about your ad choices.

In Academic Outsider: Stories of Exclusion and Hope (Stanford University Press, 2022), sociologist Victoria Reyes combines her personal experiences with research findings to examine how academia creates conditional citizenship for its marginalized members. Reyes draws from her family background, experiences during routine university life, and academic scholarship to theorize the academic outsiders as those who "are constantly reminded that our presence in the academy is contingent and in constant flux" (10-11). She elaborates on how love and worth are assessed in the university and her experiences as a mother in the academy. The final chapter calls for academic justice and offers practical strategies to combat the academy's exclusionary practices. In this book Reyes contributes to important conversations in the university on the experiences of people of color, women, and those from marginalized backgrounds. This book will be of interest to those who experience the academy's conditional citizenship, those who want to understand how the university perpetuates inequality, and those who want to challenge these conditions.  Victoria Reyes is Associate Professor in the Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies at the University of California, Riverside. She is the author of Global Borderlands (Stanford, 2019). Reighan Gillam is Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Southern California. She is the author of Visualizing Black Lives: Ownership and Control in Afro-Brazilian Media (Illinois, 2022).  Learn more about your ad choices.
