Speaker Robyn Ochs

Time: 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Location: Memorial Lounge
Description: Beyond Binaries: Identity, Gender, & Sexuality

This program explores the landscape of sexual orientation, and how we “map” sexual orientation. No two people are exactly alike. Given that, how do we assign labels to our complicated and unique experiences? In this interactive workshop we will conduct an anonymous survey of those present, and we will look at the data. Where do we fall on the sexuality continuum? How do we label? In this fun and interactive program we explore different experiences of identity; the complexity of attraction and more. Note: This program, “Beyond Binaries: Identity, Gender & Sexuality,” includes a focus on gender identity and expression.

Hysterical: book reading by Rebecca Coffey

Time: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Location: Flying Pig Books, Shelburne Road
Description: HYSTERICAL is the fact-based, fictional autobiography of Sigmund Freud’s smartest daughter. The life of pioneering child psychoanalyst Anna Freud (1895-1982) was, by any standards, extraordinary. It spanned two centuries, three continents, and both world wars, and was enlivened by her and her father’s relationships with some of their era's most brilliant minds. More than just Sigmund's favorite child, Anna was his sounding board as he shaped his theories. As he aged, she became his chief protector and a profoundly influential psychoanalyst in her own right. All that—and she helped hide a few skeletons in the Freud family closet. Hysterical reveals two of those skeletons.

First, although Sigmund warned that analysis is an erotic arena that should never be risked with a family member, at around the time that the young Anna began having intense “friendships” with other young women, he analyzed her. In their nightly sessions they dissected her dreams, her memories, and, most disturbingly, her sexual fantasies, ones in which she was beaten by an enraged father figure.

Second, although Anna never publicly contradicted Sigmund’s “wisdom” in the matter of lesbianism, she eventually lived happily and monogamously with American Tiffany heiress Dorothy Burlingham. Together they raised her children. They were together for 54 years.

What exactly happened in Sigmund's analysis of Anna? Was it the erotically charged echo chamber that Sigmund said analysis always is? If so, what effect might it have had on Anna's burgeoning sexuality? On the woman she became? Who was Dorothy Burlingham, this figure that history has ignored? Who were her children? How did Anna manage to love Dorothy, co-parent the children, and become a guiding force for educators and humanitarians, all while coddling her disapproving father as he aged and died?

And why in God’s name did she become a psychoanalyst?

Weaving a good story out of a pile of crazy facts, HYSTERICAL lets Anna freely and imaginatively examine all of the forces that shaped her life.

Booklist has called HYSTERICAL "complexly entertaining, sexually dramatic, [and] acidly funny" and LAMDA said it's "got a plot so rife with tension it’ll make you squirm." Oprah’s magazine recommended it in its June 2014 issue.

I’m a nationally known science journalist and author, and in Shelburne on September 18 I’m going to be reading from HYSTERICAL at Flying Pig Books on Shelburne Road.

COM Health Equity Film Series: Two Spirits

Time: 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Location: Medical Education Center 200
Description: TWO SPIRITS interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss of her son with a revealing look at a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female, and many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders.

Fred Martinez was nádleehí, a male-bodied person with a feminine nature, a special gift according to his ancient Navajo culture. But the place where two discriminations meet is a dangerous place to live, and Fred became one of the youngest hate-crime victims in modern history when he was brutally murdered at sixteen. Between tradition and controversy, sex and spirit, and freedom and fear, lives the truth—the bravest choice you can make is to be yourself.

There will be a brief discussion after the film.

Free and open to the public. For more information call 656-2267.

COM Health Equity Film Series: More Than a Month

Time: 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Location: Medical Education Center 200
Description: Should Black History Month be ended? That’s the question explored by African American filmmaker Shukree Hassan Tilghman as he embarks on a cross-country campaign to do just that. Both amusing and thought provoking, More Than a Month examines what the treatment of history tells us about race and power in contemporary America.

The film takes the form of a road trip that begins in Washington, D.C., crisscrosses the country during Black History Month 2010, and ends with an epilogue one year later. Combining cinema verité, man-on-the-street interviews, and inspired dramatizations, the film is a first-person narrative of the filmmaker’s quest to understand the implications of Black History Month.
