CLASSIC MEN: MUSLIM DANDIES AND THE WAR ON TERROR

Friday, March 18, 2016 - 2:30am
602 CATHEDRAL OF LEARNING

This talk examines the creative sartorial practices of American Muslim men, and particularly Black Muslim men, who are increasingly using the aesthetic of Black Dandyism to signify on white supremacy as well as on ethno-religious hegemonies within US Muslim communities. It investigates particularly how in the age of US empire and the war on terror, Muslim dandyism redefines US American Muslim masculinity, thereby confronting the intersecting hegemonies of race, class, gender, religion, and nation.

CMU International Film Festival: A Syrian Love Story

Friday, March 25, 2016 - 7:00pm
McConomy Auditorium | CMU University Center
Sponsored By: 
CMU International Film Festival

Synopsis
"Filmed over a period of five years, this intimate and insightful documentary perfectly balances the personal and the political, telling its tale of national and international upheavals through their impact on individuals at the cutting edge of change. This is a profoundly moving account of two love stories: that between the film’s central couple, Amer and Raghda, who are torn apart by imprisonment and exile; the other being their love for Syria, which casts a long shadow over their lives, their marriage and their children." -Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Performance dates are March 26th and 27th at 2 p.m. in the McConomy Auditorium at Carnegie Mellon University.
