No Más Bebés, which tells the story of
a little-known but landmark event in reproductive justice, when a
small group of Mexican immigrant women sued county doctors, the
state, and the U.S. government after they were sterilized while
giving birth at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the
late 1960s and early 1970s.
Hosted by the undergraduate club UB SoFem, in collaboration with Planned Parenthood of Central and WNY and the UB Gender Institute.

The Gender Institute welcomes
Dr. Amber Jamilla Musser
"Working Around the Incommensurate: Brown Jouissance and Kara
Walker's A Subtlety"
April 19, 2018, 120 Clemens Hall, UB North Campus
3:30 -5:30 PM
Dr. Musser's research is at the intersection of race, gender, and sexuality studies. Her monograph, Sensational Flesh: Race, Power, and Masochism (NYU Press, 2014) uses masochism as a lens to theorize different felt relationships to power. The book beings together debates on masochism within feminism, discussions of masochism from psychoanalysis and critiques of colonialism, literary presentations of masochism, and performance and visual art that draws on masochism's repertoire in order to make an argument about the relationship between sensation and knowledge production and the racialization of our current episteme of sexuality. Her current research project, "Brown Jouissance: Feminine Imaginings" uses women of color's aesthetic labors to re-imagine epistemologies of sexuality so that they center brown femininity.
