"Left on Pearl" Film Screening and Discussion

Wednesday, November 6th

6:30 p.m., Smith Buonnano Hall 106

Join us for a screening of "Left on Pearl," a work-in-progress documentary about a Harvard University building takover that took place on March 6, 1971. The film focuses on the story of the Second Wave of the women's movement at the University of Cambridge and Harvard University. One of the few such takeovers by women for women, this action proved transformative for the participants, led directly to the establishment of the longest continuously operating community Women's Center in the U.S., and sparked the development of many other feminist and community organizations in the Boston area and nationally.

Through archival footage, news articles, television news and interviews with participants, the film helps make visible the issues affecting women. The makers of film will be present for a discussion following the screening, about the ongoing creation of the film.

Medieval Songs of Masculinity

Thursday, November 21st
Time: TBA, Annmary Brown Memorial
(21 Brown Street, across from Keeney)
*Reception to follow

For updated time information, please join the Facebook invite.

The Masculinity Series invites you to a concert of medieval songs of masculinity with Stephen Higa PhD '12 and Gideon Crevoshay inside the Annmary Brown Memorial.

From passionate male friendship to heterosexual desire to religious desire and queer desire, their performance will take us into the world of masculinities of medieval Europe. We'll explore how music-making blurred the lines between the homoerotic and the homosocial and the sacred and the profane, and its impacts on the conceptualization of masculinity in present day America.
