Bayan Abusneineh's dissertation looks at race, reproductive policy and nation-state formation in Israel and Palestine, since the 1930s. This summer, Abusneineh will be instructing a course on Gender and Reproductive Politics. The course will examine historical and contemporary debates around issues such as abortion, birth control, surrogacy, fetal testing and assisted reproductive technologies.

Topics include the essential role of women as reproducers; the relationship between the corporeal body and body politics; the fight for abortion/birth control; eugenics and coerced sterilization of underprivileged women of color; reproductive health "rights" and "choices"; and the effects of structural violence and inhumane conditions on reproductive health.

7:00 PM Film: Budapest Noir Set in the politically troubled autumn of 1936, this story follows Zsigmond Gordon, a world-weary reporter asking unwanted questions about the seemingly unimportant murder of a young prostitute found beaten to death and dumped in a courtyard. While supposedly covering the funeral of fascist-leaning, real-life Hungarian prime minister Gyula Gömbös, Gordon's investigation leads him deep into the city's dark underbelly: a shady world of pornographers, fixers, all-night "smokers", boxing rings, seedy brothels, powerful crime syndicates and communist cells, all the way to the highest echelons of power, where one of Hungary's most influential business figures plans to make a fortune through his political ties to Germany's leadership—as long as he can somehow keep secret the fact that he is of Jewish heritage.
