Reproductive Rights and Responsibilities:
The production of ethical subjects in Mexico City's new public abortion program
Elyse Singer, '10
Doctoral candidate in Cultural Anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis, MO.

Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium  5:00 pm
Abortion clinics in Mexico City’s new public abortion program do more than provide medical care: they function as venues for the production of ethical subjects of the modern Mexican state. My dissertation examines how a central yet unexposed dimension of public abortion care involves “responsibilization”, a governing technique deployed increasingly in advanced neoliberal democracies (Rose 2000).  Within the public program, begun in 2007, abortion is treated as the result of careless sexual decision-making; clinicians regularly enjoin patients to be more responsible. Invocations of individual responsibility detach abortion from social and structural context such that it emerges as a moral problem of individuals needing ethical reconstitution. Responsibilization is indicative of broader transformations in “reproductive governance” unfolding throughout Latin America alongside the incorporation of neoliberal economic policies and logics that emphasize self-sufficiency (Morgan and Roberts 2012). These changes have important consequences for citizenship. Based on eighteen months of ethnographic research in Mexico City abortion clinics, including interviews with patients and staff, I argue that the program produces sexually (ir)responsible subjects instead of the empowered citizens that feminists and policy-makers had imagined with abortion reform. This moralizing context prevents the internalization of abortion rights, an element I conceptualize as central to reproductive citizenship.

The Best of Corto Circuito: A Mini Festival of Short Films
Campus Center, Weis Cinema  5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Corto Circuito was formed eleven years ago in to showcase short films made by filmmakers from Latin America, Spain and the United States in Spanish and Portuguese. Since then, it has grown exponentially, becoming a reference in the film festival scene of New York City and the country at large. Each year, their selections have included animated and fictional short films, as well as documentaries and experimental works, many of which were United States and New York premieres.The Best of Corto Circuito: A Mini Festival of Short Films will consist of a screening of selected short films from the festival, with an emphasis on human rights and immigration. To complement the film program of The Best of Corto Circuito, there will be a Q&A with a surprise filmmaker guest, and a panel discussion with Diana Vargas and Laura Turégano, Co-founders of Cortocircuito.

This event is a collaboration between Bard College and the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center at New York University. Organized by Prof. López-Gay, Spanish Studies. All films are in Spanish with English subtitles. Free and open to the public.

Alejandra Pizarnik as Self-Translator
Patricio Ferrari, Brown University
RKC 102  5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The renowned Argentine poet, translator, and literary critic Alejandra Pizarnik (1936-1972) published seven books of poetry during her short yet prolific lifetime. Among the numerous unpublished poems found in her archive held at Princeton University there are around two dozen French verse texts, some of which Pizarnik translated into Spanish and subsequently edited. Focusing on specific poems included in El infierno musical and Textos de sombra y últimos poemas, I will discuss self-translation as part of Pizarnik’s creative process. Unpublished material from the archive will be presented.Patricio Ferrari left Argentina for the United States at the age of sixteen, and since that time has lived in India, France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, and Sweden. His work as literary critic, editor and translator bridges a life between languages. In 2012 Ferrari received a PhD in Portuguese Linguistics from the University of Lisbon with a dissertation on the metrics of Fernando Pessoa. He currently holds a post-doctoral position at Brown University, where he is pursuing an MFA in poetry.
