Sarah Schulman: Conflict Is Not Abuse – Progressive Activism in the Era of Trump
Monday 13 March 2017
Iliff School of Theology * Shattuck Hall * 2323 E Iliff Ave Denver CO 80210
2-5pm: United in Anger: A History of ACT UP – Film and Discussion
United in Anger: A History of ACT UP is an inspiring documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the epidemic. Utilizing oral histories of members of ACT UP, as well as rare archival footage, the film depicts the efforts of ACT UP as it battles corporate greed, social indifference, and government neglect.
6-9pm: “Conflict Is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair” – Lecture and Discussion
Schulman’s latest book brings insight into contemporary and historical issues of personal, racial and geo-political difference, as tools of escalation towards injustice, exclusion and punishment, whether the objects of dehumanization are other individuals in our families or communities, African Americans at the hands of police, people with HIV, and Palestinians. Conflict Is Not Abuse is a searing rejection of the cultural phenomenon of blame, cruelty, and scapegoating, revealing how those in positions of power exacerbate and manipulate fear of the “other” to avoid facing themselves.
Sarah Schulman is a novelist, playwright, screenwriter, nonfiction writer, professor, and journalist. She was a founding member of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power – ACT UP. She is distinguished professor of the humanities at CUNY, a fellow at the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU, on the advisory board of Jewish Voice for Peace and faculty advisor to Students for Justice in Palestine. Her awards include a Guggenheim, Fulbright in Judaic Studies, two American Library Association Book Awards (fiction and nonfiction), and the Kessler Prize for Sustained Contribution to LGBT Studies.
The 24th CROI (Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections) is February 13-16 in Seattle…and every spring for the last 24 years, our local doctors from the University of Colorado have presented the highlights of this conference to the community. Attended by 4200 doctors, clinicians, and researchers from all over the world, this conference is considered to be the “granddaddy” of all the HIV medical conferences held each year.
HIV treatment is constantly evolving due to the large amount of research and new data from studies. Doctors Johnson and Campbell will present material from this year’s conference, focusing on information of interest to our community.
Remember…knowledge is power!
