    10-13-2016
    Global & International Studies Building Auditorium, room 0001

    "The Geopolitics of Your Bathtub: Why Who Does Your Housework Matters” Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor at Clark University, Massachusetts An Institute for Advanced Study Branigin Lecture Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Global Change Co-sponsored by the Department of Gender Studies Abstract: Cleaning someone else's home is one of the most intimate kinds of paid work a person can do. But in today's world it has become also one of the most globalized sorts of labor. It is work done overwhelmingly by women, millions of women who regularly migrate far from their own homes. Against all odds, many of these migrant women have created effective worker rights organizations, which have altered the political and gendered landscape in which domestic workers are hired. The world of domestic housework therefore extends far beyond homes around the world and ultimately becomes a lens to global phenomena. Cynthia Enloe will describe the dramatic political change as domestic workers gain more rights and demonstrate how this exemplifies and challenges geopolitical realities and inequalities.

  • IU CINEMA: The River

An adaptation of a semi-autobiographical novel by Rumer Godden, The River was shot in India and is one of the most beautiful color films ever made. It tells a simple story of a colonial family (mostly women) and their relationships with Indians, but it is also a gentle, unsentimental, and moving meditation on the themes of memory, time, and geography. “The river runs,” a repeated phrase in the film, is a perfect expression of Renoir’s entire approach to cinema. In Bengali and English with English subtitles. (35mm Presentation)

  • IU CINEMA: The Earrings of Madame de

    6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
    10-30-2016
    The Indiana University Cinema is located at 1213 E. 7th Street, Bloomington, Indiana. We are located at the East end of the IU Auditorium building. Our main entrance is on the North side, facing the Wells Library.

    The film will be preceded by a short introduction by James Naremore, Chancellors’ Professor Emeritus in Communication and Culture, English, and Comparative Literature at Indiana University. A “recurring object” plot, this film involves a frivolous aristocratic lady who secretly pawns a pair of earrings given to her by her husband. The earrings take a long journey, eventually finding their way back to the lady and revealing a good deal about several characters. Director Ophüls described the earrings as the “axis” of a merry-go-round, but he could also have described them as the motive for a dance. In either case, his film contains some of the most graceful and meaningful tracking shots in all of cinema—a technique for which he was justifiably famous. In French with English subtitles.
