International Womens Day in Granada

image (1) On March 8th, it took place a historic moment for the feminist movement: the first feminist strike was called in Spain, with a great response from its citizens. The streets of Granada, like those of many other cities, were filled by crowds singing chants and raising banners that acclaimed various demands in relation to the oppresive circumstances that women live in the world.

8M is likely to be the prelude of a movement that won't happen only in the streets, but also in all the spaces in which women and other groups have experienced the harmful effects of the patriarchal culture rooted in our society. This action has encouraged the eradication of all forms of violence against women and the exploiting exclusive assigment of care tasks. Today more than ever, we need to remember that all the social actors play an important role in the transformation towards a more egalitarian society. image-1 (1)


Presentation of the GEMMA Master in the III Cumbre Académica: América Latina y Caribe - Unión Europea

The Erasmus Mundus Master's Degree in Women and Gender Studies, represented by Mónica Szurmuk from the University of Buenos Aires, participated in the Córdoba Latin America and Caribbean-European Union Academic Summit organized by the National University of Córdoba in Argentina and the Academic Forum Permanent ALC-EU, a space for international academic cooperation between institutions in Latin America, the Caribbean and the European Union. One of the six thematic workshops of the Summit was dedicated for the first time to issues of Gender and Integration of Women in the Academic Environment. GEMMA was presented in the context of this workshop, which was coordinated by Patricia Rojo. Dr. Szurmuk insisted on the particularity and excellence of this graduate program, on its international links and also presented the GRACE Project, highlighting its importance as a program of excellence endorsed by the European Commission. The particular characteristics of the Master's Degree were discussed, among them the double degree and the participation of European and American universities as associate institutions. Dr. Agustina Rodríguez Saa, Rector of the National University of the Comechingones in Argentina and Dr. María Clelia Guiñazú, Director of International Relations of that University, also participated in the workshop. Dr. Guiñazú presented an analysis of the participation of women in higher education in Latin America and, although it is very high, women rarely access positions of leadership. In Argentina, for example, while almost 60% of students in national universities are women, there is only 11% of female directors. Workshop participants celebrated the GEMMA model as one of good practices and were interested in establishing links with the program from educational and civil organizations. Topics of inclusion, sexual dissidence and retention of women in scientific careers were also discussed.

Conference: “Body, Technology and Gender” 30581728102138261789017924131815249500176384n (1) On April 18th, the Scientific Documentation Center hosted the conference “Body, Technology and Gender”, in which the cyborg artist Moon Ribas participated performing a seismic percussion. The event was part of the dissemination of the GRACE project of the UGR, in which the researcher Johanna Levy presented the preliminary results of her study on menstrual apps and theoretical concepts about digital bodies. We highlight the notion of the embodiment and incorporation of the cell phone as an extension of one's own body and how technoscience, material bodies, digital bodies and subjectivities were addressed through feminist studies.

In this instance, another topic that was dealt with was the use of digital technologies and its consequences for the perception and understanding of our bodies. Moon Ribas, dancer and choreographer, is considered a cyborg artist since she implanted sensors in her feet that allow her to perceive the seismic movements of the world through vibrations that vary according to their intensity. In this way, she can use her body as a means for expressing the movement of the Earth through dance. On this occasion, she presented a “seismic percussion”, in which she reproduced Spain’s seismic movements of the last decades by playing a drum. img20180507103253603 (1) (2)

Visit to the Archive of Granada’s Royal Chancery

img-20180427-wa0009 (1) On the 27th of April, some students to visit the historic archive of Granada’s Royal Chancery (Real Chancillería). The activity was part of Celia Prados’ classes within Study Cases I. Located at a rebuilt building where Father Suárez was born (named as the square the building is at), the archive holds the administration records of the south of the Spanish kingdoms since 1537. The original Royal Chancery was located in Plaza Nueva, where the Superior Court of Justice of Andalucía is currently at. In the 19th century, it became Granada’s Provincial Courts. Granada was chosen to hold the Royal Chancery, as part of geopolitical strategies from the Catholic Monarchs’ heir in the 16th century. Granada’s Royal Chancery used to be the place where some significant issues from every region south of Tagus river were supposed to be resolved, where as Valladolid’s Royal Chancery (and the Royal Audience) kept track of the northern regions. During the visit, it was explained the variety of documents the archive storage holds, for example: parchments from the 16th century. The multiple, even eccentric calligraphies demanded previous training in order to be read and de-codified. The documents were about southern law suits, and some of them lasted more than two centuries. These documents serve as indispensable historical records for many research projects related to feminism and gender studies, such as the exchange of female slaves in the 17th century, the suits from abused women, the disputes for nobility recognition, and (one of the hardest to access to) people judged under the 1933 Law Against Vague and Criminal People for homosexuality among other topics. descarga (1)

Introduction to Queer Theory Course by Professor Jack Halberstam -6 On May 21, 22, 28 and 29, was held the “Introduction to Queer Theory” course by Prof. Dr. Jack Halberstam of Columbia University. The sessions dealt with the following topics: “Queer now and then”, “Queer Temporalities”, “Queer of Color Critique” and “Queer / Trans * and Beyond”, respectively. The objective of the course was focused on the development of critical analytical skills to consider the social change movements with particular attention to how sex, gender, race, class, sexuality, sexual orientation, and other systems of power shape people’s everyday lives. We traced the intersection of histories of labor, medicine, representation and activism and we will ask difficult questions about assimilation, mainstreaming, globalization and pink capitalism. The methodology of the course was based on the reading and discussion of theoretical essays, social studies and films in order to think deeply about sexuality, identity, desire, race, objects, relationality, being, knowing and becoming. Additionally, during the course we considered sexuality, desire and gender not as a discrete set of bodily articulations nor as natural expressions of coherent identities so much as part of the formulation of the self that Avery Gordon names “complex personhood.” Finally, we also explored new and old theories of queer desire and embodiment and political orientation.

Conference Trans *: Histories, Bodies and the Unbuilding of Worlds by Prof. Jack Halberstam 3335994810155853483884531740319578621476864n (1)

On May 28, was held at the Scientific Documentation Center the Conference by Professor Jack Halberstam of the University of Columbia, United States. In this talk, the prof. Halberstam presented his work he did in TRANS* with a book in progress on wildness or “queerness after nature.” Wildness it was presented as a great category with which to think it references all at once the opposite of civilization; the idea of unsorted relations to knowledge and being – if, as Foucault proposes, there is an order of things, the professor Halberstam proposes there must also be a disorder of things; this is what he call “nature after nature”; queerness after and before nature and life as an encounter with both the biopolitical forces of being and the necropolitical forces of unbecoming. And while we think of sexual and gender minority identities as ways of extending the meaning of embodiment, they actually introduce a wildness and a disorder into the system as a whole. This talk was related with three sites of trans* becoming and unbecoming drawn from social history, feminism and architecture.

Talk and debate film “Eisa Vida Mía” -7 On June 7, the talk and debate of the film Elisa, Vida Mía (1977), directed by Carlos Saura, was held in the auditorium of the scientific documentation center at the UGR. The debate was led by Daniel Berjano, student of the 10th edition of the GEMMA Master, as part of his Master's Thesis directed by prof. Adelina Sánchez Espinosa. This TFM deals with the theme “Vampires in transition”, as described Daniel Berjano: “Hispanic film scholars have approached cinema of the Spanish transition of the late 1970s as a technology of new civic ideals of neoliberal democracy. This paper aims at inquiring the latter affirmation by mapping the location of vampires precisely in the transition to our current neoliberal regime. Following Rita Segato and Paul Preciado among others, vampire-images might respond to a capitalist patriarchal reaction before the recent implosion of politics of resistance and liberation”.
