144. Program Committee Teach-In: Standing Rock in Real Time

Hyatt Regency Chicago Comiskey, Concourse Level West Tower

By the time ASA convenes in November, the NO-DAPL movement—the large-scale protest led by Standing Rock Sioux against the Dakota Access Pipeline, a project that snakes across four states and endangers water sources for multiple communities, will be nearly two years old. Begun with a protest ride in April 2016, by the end of the year it had greatly expanded, growing to an encampment of thousands, playing out in court and federal agencies, and inspiring solidarity marches and Teach Ins at universities, cities, and reservations across the globe. The movement has been met with violence. Police have used deadly force, and hundreds of protesters have been arrested and injured. While it is difficult to anticipate the conversation next November, certain things are clear: the No-DAPL movement has mobilized social justice groups across the globe; and Standing Rock is likely to be one of the first violent confrontation zones of the Trump administration, easily visible in terms of longstanding American ideologies surrounding conquest and colonialism, and the criminalization of dissent.

This session is a Teach In that brings together academics who have participated in the various fronts of the Standing Rock battle. This session will reflect on what it means to deal with the immediate and changing picture at Standing Rock—responding in real time—and how it fits into the long, ongoing history of Indian Wars in America.

147. Program Committee: Performances of Dissent

Hyatt Regency Chicago Gold Coast, Concourse Level West Tower

This roundtable conversation explores the ways performance initiates and establishes dissenting strategies in everyday life and/or the classroom. The participants will present their unique pedagogical approaches to performance and suggest its study as a catalyst for collective thinking, in and outside of the academy. The roundtable, moderated by Laura G. Gutiérrez, will activate bold approaches to visual art and culture, embodiment, music, literature, and law to galvanize the dissenting marrow of African American Studies, Latina/o Studies, Asian American Studies, and Queer Theory. The conversation will revolve around a series of questions and models, including: how can teaching involve performance to highlight radical transformations in critical practices (artistic and otherwise)? How might performance studies be engaged in an institutional or traditional disciplinary setting without blunting its rebellious edge? What are some of the ways of moving performance beyond its usual entrapment as either adornment or utility for activism?

Hyatt Regency Chicago Regency B, Ballroom Level West Tower

Following the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States, 133 universities and colleges nationwide have issued petitions to declare their campus a sanctuary. Scholars, students, and staff are advancing measures to create a safe learning and working environment for undocumented and DACAmented students and staff and international students against the President-elect's incendiary comments on immigrants and threats to deport the undocumented and end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Executive Order.

This teach-in session brings together students and academic staff to speak on what they consider to be the most pressing issues concerning the new movement of students and new student movements. Undocumented and international students are two groups that are redefining the makeup and intercultural, interclass dynamics of US campuses at a moment of the increasing corporatization of our universities. The aim of this teach-in is to offer strategies and tactics for how to mobilize a campus/community and to explore avenues whereby Asian, Latinx, Black, Middle Eastern, and other students can come together to challenge immigration restrictions and xenophobia while resisting the problematic pitting of "good" versus "bad" immigrants that reinforce the stigma of "criminality" to sanction the stripping of basic rights and humanity.

183. Combahee and Her Daughters: Black/Queer/Feminist/Women's Practices of Survival and Resistance

Hyatt Regency Chicago Skyway 260, Skyway Level East Tower

This panel convenes Black women who have conducted exceptional work engaging in daily and local projects of justice work. At a moment when interlocking oppressions of racism, homophobia, misogyny, xenophobia, and more attempt to immiserate us daily in the United States, we are moved if not in fact beholden to an intersectional liberationist politics—one that has been repeated throughout the Black feminist tradition and beautifully clarified by the Combahee River Collective's landmark Black Feminist Statement of 1977.

The participants—Combahee members and her daughters—conduct Black/queer/feminist work on food justice, sexual and gender pride, bodily integrity, health, love, and dignity. This labor has given and continues to create spaces and strategies for building the beloved community as it outwits the structures of white supremacy, colonialism, and heteropatriarchy. In the spirit of Patricia Hill Collins's work on Black feminist consciousness, this session is structured to decenter the academy as the essential zone of intellectual activist work by acknowledging, to paraphrase Collins, that the Black feminist activist tradition is deep and wide, and has always entailed projects and strategies of community survival.

Format: Panelists will discuss these elemental—but by no means simple—projects of their individual justice work. Attention will be paid to how that work is reflected and informed by the queer Black feminist values articulated in the Combahee River Collective's landmark statement. The roundtable will create a space for productive exchange on current practices of Black feminist affirmation and resistance.

Juliet Nebolon, whose essay, “Life Given Straight from the Heart”: Settler Militarism, Biopolitics, and Public Health in Hawai‘i during World War II,” was published in American Quarterly 69.1 (March 2017), has graciously agreed to make her materials accessible to ASA members, conference attendees, and prospective authors for a limited time period. These materials should provide good insight as to what the external reviewers and the Board of Managing Editors look for as well as effective ways of addressing their comments. Those who intend to attend the workshop in Chicago are encouraged to look through the materials prior to the meeting.

281. Presidential Address: Pedagogies of Dissent

Hyatt Regency Chicago Regency AB, Ballroom Level West Tower

This address will engage such questions as these: What are the pedagogies of dissent—by which I mean organized and collective efforts to produce awareness of and responses to social (in)justice through curriculum, administration, and teaching and learning practices—appropriate to current conditions? How and in what ways are and should they be attuned to the embeddedness of the academy in the fabric of the dominant social, political economic, and cultural hegemonies? What horizons emerge for pedagogies of dissent when they are disarticulated from bourgeois liberalism? What, finally, might pedagogies of dissent do, and might American studies organized by and around them do, to make "freedom" more than "academic"?

Kandice Chuh, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York
