Movie screening followed by Skype Q&A with Dolores Huerta

Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 88.

The Magazinization of Thai Gay Identity: Metrosexual and Thai Gay Comedy after 1997

This seminar explores the relationship between Thai sexual politics and the kingdom’s political economy after the 1997 Asian financial crisis.  While the influx of foreign capital enabled by trade liberalization introduced new forms of queer subjectivity and modes of queer consumption, such shifts were limited by the family-centric paradigms of the Thaksin administration.
