Living in Recovery: A Panel Discussion on Eating Disorders

April 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

April 2nd, 2014. 6.30-8.00pm. Reeve Theater Kitty Westin Bio forthcoming. Matt Wetsel After suffering from anorexia as an undergraduate in college, Matt Wetsel got involved with the Eating Disorders Coalition (EDC) in 2007 doing volunteer grassroots lobby work. Inspired by the people he met there, he became active in his local community organizing occasional guest speakers and giving talks to help educate others about eating disorders. He joined the EDC Junior Board in Spring 2011, focusing on volunteer recruitment and state-level organizing year-round. He started his blog, …Until Eating Disorders Are No More, in early 2011. The name was inspired by the legislative efforts of the Eating Disorders Coalition to help end eating disorders through effective policy reform, public education, and properly funded research. More recently, his attention has shifted to examining gender constructs and how they negatively impact mental health and eating disorders in particular. When not working on eating disorder advocacy, Matt has a background in research, having worked as the primary data collector for a large, federally funded research grant, the Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems (TBIMS) Project since 2008. Matt has degrees in Psychology and Religious Studies, and holds a Graduate Studies Certificate in Gender, Sexuality, & Women’s Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University. UW Oshkosh Student in Recovery In order to protect the privacy of our student panelist, we will not be listing a biography here. We appreciate her willingness to share her story with us at the panel.

April 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Women’s Advocacy Council at UW Oshkosh presents Anita Sarkeesian (with co-sponsorship from the Women’s Center, Oshkosh Gaming Club, Pepsi Fund, Speakers Series and Residence Life). “Anita Sarkeesia is a Canadian-American feminist, media critic and blogger. She is the author of the video blog “Feminist Frequency” and the video series Tropes vs. Women and Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, which examine tropes in the depiction of women in popular culture. In 2012, Sarkeesian was targeted by an online harassment campaign following her launch of a Kickstarter project to fund the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games series. At the same time, supporters donated over $150,000 to the project, beyond the $6,000 amount sought. The situation drew media attention, placing Sarkeesian at the center of discussions about misogyny in video game culture and online harassment.” Information from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anita_Sarkeesian

Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age two, Abbey Curran never accepted her physical limitations. She admits her disability comes with lifelong challenges, but none that hold her back, playing sports (she “just falls more”) and driving a car with a special steering wheel and brake. Curran’s resilience and determination to pursue her dreams led her to become the first woman with disabilities to compete in the Miss USA Pageant® in 2008. Miss You Can Do It highlights the extraordinary work Curran is doing with the pageant she founded. Curran and a team of enthusiastic volunteers give participants a chance to be celebrated for all they are inside, not just defined by what the world sees on the outside. For one special weekend the young girls, along with family and friends, some who have traveled far distances, spend time in an oasis of fun, femininity and celebration. No one leaves the pageant empty-handed, with each girl receiving a special award. The real winners of the pageant might be the families and friends, who proudly cheer them on from the audience.

RUB Comedian: Drew Lynch

RUB Comedian: Drew Lynch

April 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“An opener for Bo Burnham, Drew Lynch was an eager young actor and a classic “”chatterbox”", notorious for talking a mile a minute. Born in Indiana and raised in Las Vegas, he graduated from the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts with aspirations of becoming a fully articulate film actor. Then something unimaginable happened; at only age 20, during a company softball game, Drew got hit in the throat with the ball causing his vocal chord to paralyze, turning his chattering into stuttering. This life changing injury sparked a passion for writing and performing Stand up Comedy, bringing to life the social hardships of dealing with a newly-found speech impediment. Inspired by the comedy of Louis C.K., Dave Chappell, and the up and coming Samuel J. Comroe, Drew is on a mission to make you laugh.”

A Conversation on Queer Femme* April 22, 2014 Sage 1214 5.00pm-7.00pm Cosponsored with the LGBTQ Resource Center Alexa Athelstan Alexa Athelstan (igsaa@leeds.ac.uk) is a final year University of Leeds Research Scholarship PhD student at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies, supervised by Dr. Shirley Anne Tate and Professor Ian Law from the Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies, School of Sociology and Social Policy, Leeds University. Her current research project theorises queer feminine orientations, modes of embodiment and subjectivity in everyday life, with a particular focus on positioned and intersectional dynamics of inclusion and exclusion. Additionally, Alexa has worked as one of the Editors in Chief for the Graduate Journal of Social Science with Rosemary Deller. Alexa Athelstan is also editing two collaborative books. Queer Feminine Affinities, edited with Vikki Chalklin, aims to collect fresh perspective, reflections and visual art on femme and queer feminine identities and communities situated in the UK. Tensions of Rhetorics and Realities in Critical Diversities is a collection of essays edited in collaboration with Nichole Edwards, Mercedes Pöll & Sanaz Raji, as part of Dr. Sally Hines and Professor Yvette Taylor’s Advance in Critical Diversities Palgrave McMillan book series. She has presented on femme and queer femininities at various conferences including The 8th European Feminist Research Conference, Lesbian Lives, GendErotica & the 1st Italian Femme Conference and her chapter ‘Occupying Normality Abnormally: Queer(ing) Heterosexual Fem(me)ininities’ will be published in the forthcoming book edited by Sita Balani entitled Queers Talk Lesbian Notions.

I have been pleasantly surprised with the results. I am currently living outside of the academic world in an effort to remain grounded in the day-to-day, more-practical world. Through the experience of earning my BA, and through traveling abroad, I have learned that change truly does start from within. That being said, I feel that I am creating change simply by being who I am. Even though I am not working in a career that is explicitly focused on social change, I have been fortunate to reach people on a personal level, having remarkable and honest conversations about gender and/or sexuality on an almost daily basis. To personalize Ghandi’s famous words, I am the change I wish to see in the world.

Cosponsored by the Women’s Center, Diversity and Inclusion Programs, Office of Student Affairs, Career Services, and UW Credit Union.

Public support for climate change action: Lessons from Norway

Public support for climate change action: Lessons from Norway

April 28 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

This year, the Geography Department’s annual Geiger Memorial Lecture is entitled; Public support for climate change action: Lessons from Norway, presented by Mads Dahl Gjefsen. He is currently a visiting scholar in the UWO Department of Geography & Urban Planning. He is about to submit his PhD thesis in the field of Science and Technology Studies at the University of Oslo, Norway. Many options exist for addressing climate change through regulation and technology development. However, such measures are often expensive, and therefore dependent on strong public support. This lecture will describe an ambitious–but ultimately unsuccessful–attempt to develop a new energy technology in Norway. The failure will be explained with reference to public expectations about what constitutes technological success. It will be argued that public support depends on the staging of clear end points, where developments in science and technology are made visible as national achievements. In this respect, the Apollo space program and cold war communication tactics provide an instructive example of how the public can be mobilized in the fight against global warming.
