  • Northwestern students upset burlesque cast didn't represent 'oppressed' groups

    Students at Northwestern University (NU) are protesting the school’s annual burlesque show, which typically includes a variety of stripteases where students get “ pretty close to naked.” Protesters, however, are not upset with the slightly pornographic content of the show but are “hurt” because the initial casting decisions did not sufficiently represent “marginalized experiences.” “If we’re claiming to be the most diverse show on campus, we need to be better at representing the groups oppressed in our society than the rest of society,” said student Taylor Cumings, who is in her third year with the NU burlesque cast. Directors of the show told The Daily Northwestern that they received a number of complaints from students after they posted their casting decisions. “It was brought to our attention that there are people in our community who feel that those solos and duets and trios are not best representing what the Burlesque community is. We do have a very inclusive and representative cast at large and we’re taking that criticism into account and really trying to reestablish a safe space,” said co-director Avril Dominguez. As a result, directors are holding a second round of auditions to recast the show so that it is more inclusive. Some students, though, were too offended with the decisions and decided to drop out of the show even after the directors announced a recast. Genesis Garcia, a student at NU who called the show one of the best things she has done, said she considered leaving the cast because she could see that her fellow students were hurt. “I decided I’ll stay because I want to see changes being made – I want to make sure people are being held accountable and to be held accountable myself. The biggest thing from here on out is accountability.” “I decided I’ll stay because I want to see changes being made – I want to make sure people are being held accountable and to be held accountable myself. The biggest thing from here on out is accountability,” Garcia said. Other students were upset they were not given a lead role or a solo in the show but directors said they stand by their initial decisions. “It’s upsetting to us that people not getting a solo or small group piece makes them feel excluded from the Burlesque community,” said co-director Alaura Hernandez. Hernandez pointed out that students are unfairly basing their criticism on a list of names, and may not actually know the students who were casted in lead roles. “People are upset because they don’t think we have diversity in our small groups, but they don’t know the people who got solos — all they see is a name, so they might have made an assumption based on those names. We see the diversity in our acts because we saw the auditions, but it’s not our place to broadcast what these acts represent,” she said. The directors did, however, establish “a constitution” to ensure casting decisions are more inclusive at the outset moving forward. Co-director Lauren Hamilton said the show has never had an issue with casting decisions in the past but agrees the show needs to be more inclusive. “Even though this is something new that we’re being confronted with, that doesn’t make it any less valid,” she said. “It’s very important that we are always consciously thinking of deliberate ways to uplift people that are not uplifted in society.” Follow the author of this article on Twitter: @AGockowsk […]

  • Yale admin. may leave to teach preschoolers who 'don't try to get you fired'

    A Yale University administrator who has gone on sabbatical to avoid the opprobrium of students who object to her defense of free speech says she isn’t sure she wants to return to the school. “I’m toying with going back into an early childhood classroom in some capacity,” Erika Christakis told The New York Times Sunday, joking that preschool students “don’t try to get you fired.” Christakis, a lecturer and associate master at Silliman College, came under fire in October for sending a critical response to a mass email from the school’s Intercultural Affairs Committee reminding students to avoid potentially wearing offensive Halloween costumes, ultimately leading both her and her husband to cancel their courses at the university this semester. [RELATED: Yale administrators succumb to anti-speech activists] In her response, Christakis complained that “we seem afraid that college students are unable to decide how to dress themselves on Halloween,” musing “Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit obnoxious… a little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive?” Christakis argued that while she “[doesn’t] wish to trivialize genuine concerns about cultural and personal representation, and other challenges to our lived experience in a plural community,” the initial email raised concerns that the drive to avoid offense has begun to supersede the more important principle of free expression. The email prompted student protests on campus calling for Erika to resign, leading at one point to a confrontation caught on video in which her husband, Silliman College Master Nicholas Christakis, was surrounded by a mob of hostile students demanding that he apologize for defending the content of his wife’s missive. Mr. Christakis explained that he unequivocally supports freedom of speech—“even when it’s offensive” and “even when I don’t agree with the content”—but failed to mollify the students, one of whom complained that Erika’s email had made her feel that Yale is no longer a “safe space” for her. [RELATED: Yale student protesters allegedly spit on free speech advocates] Although more than 70 faculty members later signed an open letter supporting the Christakis’ right to free speech, an even greater number chose to side with the aggrieved students, leading to their decision to cancel course offerings, though both will remain in their administrative roles at Silliman College. [RELATED: Yale faculty sign letter defending controversial email] “It was a painful experience,” Ms. Christakis recounted to The Times, adding that she was particularly disappointed to see that so many students would actually defer to Yale on the question of how they should dress. “Should we be talking more transparently about when it’s appropriate for administrations to insert themselves into issues that arise in students’ lives?” she asked. “I think students are more capable than we give them credit for being to manage social norming.” Follow the author of this article on Twitter: @FrickePet […]
