The MA in Critical Studies program is excited to welcome Dr. Sami Schalk to present a public lecture on her work and research as part of the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies Lecture Series.
Sami Schalk is an assistant professor of Gender & Women’s Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research focuses on disability, race, and gender in contemporary American literature and culture. Schalk’s first book, Bodyminds Reimagined: (Dis)ability, Race, & Gender in Black Women’s Speculative Fiction (Duke UP 2018), explores how black women writers use non-realist genres to reimagine the possibilities and limits of bodyminds, challenging our understanding of the meanings of disability, race, and gender. Schalk’s next project focuses on disability politics in black activism in the post-Civil Rights era. She identifies as a fat, black, queer, femme, nondisabled cis-gendered woman. She can be found on Twitter as @drsamischalk and on her website, samischalk.com.
Free and open to the public.
Be sure to see MA Critical Studies Student, Jason Le, moderate Andrew Tay and Stephen Thompson's discussion of their performance, Make Banana Cry!

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will be at GMA Architects, where Miller’s ongoing exhibition serves as a backdrop for the talk.
