Bloomington PRIDE Film Festival Announces 2014 Festival Program

Bloomington PRIDE Film Festival Announces 2014 Festival Program


BLOOMINGTON, Ind.: The Bloomington PRIDE Film Festival, approaching its 11th anniversary, has announced the program of films and performers for the January, 2014 film festival.


The annual film festival, which celebrates LGBTQ culture in Bloomington and around the world, will feature 26 films, including four feature-length films and 22 shorts. Movies screened at PRIDE all have content concerning LGBTQ people as well as their families and communities. The 2014 festival has movies from four continents, by professional filmmakers and MFA students alike. The films’ stories cover topics like transgender parenting, bullying, the joys and woes of being single, coming out, HIV/AIDS, cat allergies, and so much more.


A diverse screening committee of fifteen volunteers previews and selects films for the festival. This year, the committee sorted through 155 movies, with a majority having arrived by open submission, reflecting on the popularity of the PRIDE Film Festival.


“We work hard to make sure films represent all kinds of people and issues among the LGBTQ community,” said the festival’s co-director, Abby Henkel. “There’s not just one way to be gay, bisexual, queer, etc., and we are proud to offer a festival program as diverse as the community we aim to serve and celebrate.”


With so much to be proud of regarding LGBTQ rights -- Indiana University and the Bloomington City Council both joined the Freedom Indiana coalition opposing HJR6, and the IU GLBT Alumni Association recently announced a new scholarship fund – PRIDE’s place in the Bloomington community has never been more prominent. Nationally, more and more states are adopting marriage equality, and the U.S. Senate achieved bipartisan support for a ban on workplace discrimination. Coming on the heels of a world-famous mass same-sex wedding blessed by Mayor Mark Kruzan at the 2013 festival, PRIDE planners assure fans that the 2014 festival will be at least as thrilling as the last.


Bloomington PRIDE is supported by Markey’s Rental and Staging, Jeff Franklin/FC Tucker, Visit Bloomington, Oliver Winery, Jill Reitmeyer/The Dental Care Center, Lisa Baker DDS, SIWY Plastic Surgery, the IU GLBT Alumni Association, The Word, and the Bloomington Arts Commission. You can hear more about PRIDE on bloomingOUT Radio on WFHB FM, December 19 at 6pm.


Mission: Through community-based events and services, Bloomington PRIDE celebrates queer arts, creates safe and inclusive spaces, and challenges stereotypes to enrich LGBTQA community culture.

NEW for Spring: ANTH-A 200 Bike Racing, Doping and International Sport

Newly Added for Spring 2014


ANTH-A 200 Bike Racing, Doping and International Sport


Meets IUB GenEd S&H and COLL (CASE) S&H


In recent years the international sport of bike racing has come under scrutiny for the ubiquity of performance enhancing drugs.  However, doping is only one aspect of a 130 year cultural history of bike racing which has been used to further political agendas, challenge racism and as a tool of colonialism.  This course will examine the cultures and institutions of professional bike racing from its early beginnings through its attempt to recover from the Lance Armstrong scandal in 2013.  The course will primarily focus on Western Europe, but will also include significant material on the United States and Latin America. 

Students will be able to see the ways cyclesport is a culture unto itself but also reflects specific national cultures and embodies historic moments.




Seats Added -- This course was closed.  We've been able to add enough seats to accommodate all those who were on the waitlist and have provided room for additonal students who would like to enroll.


ANTH-A 208 Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll


Meets IUB GenEd A&H and COLL (CASE) A&H


Do you feel like a punk?  Do you wonder what an "ethical slut" is?  Are hallucinogens illegal because they open the mind and somebody prefers to leave it closed?  In short:  Are you interested in the subversive culture that surrounds Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n-Roll?  If so, you should take this course.  In it we try to answer these and other provocative questions by taking proposing to take them on as legitimate academic inquiry.  First, we introduce ourselves to various theoretical perspectives that shed light on the reasons for and inherent contradictions within forms of cultural expression and social practice that claim to be subversive.  Second, we divide the remainder of the course into three broad sections - (1) Sex (2) Drugs and (3) Rock-n-Roll - in order to examine in detail particular kinds of subversive subcultures in their cultural and historical context.  This includes not only various edgy rock subcultures like punk, extreme metal, rave, and goth.  It also includes subcultures that grow up around illicit substances (i.e. street dealer/addict subcultures/club cultures/hallucinogenic subcultures) and anti-normative sexual practices like modern polygamy/polyamory, alternatives to mainstream pornography, and BDSM.  Finally, we undertake this study of subversive subcultures from an inherently anthropological point of view:  meaning we visit subcultures in various global contexts (US, Europe, Latin America, Africa, etc.) and learn how to think about them in a broad global context.

Interactive CASE N&M? SLAV-T252: Intro to the Slavic Languages

Interested in exploring languages?  A whole family of languages?


Looking for a CASE N&M?


Want to learn linguistic analysis skills in a fun, interactive way?



Introduction to the Slavic Languages



Spring 2014

MW 1:00–2:15 pm, SY 103

carries CASE N&M


The Slavic languages form an important subgroup of Indo-European and are spoken from East and Central Europe, through the Balkans, and across northern Asia, and Russian serves as a lingua franca across Central Asia.  The three branches of Slavic (East, West, and South) are composed of over a dozen living languages and boast well over 400 million speakers.


The course is meant to be a fun and interactive approach to exploring linguistic processes.  No previous experience with Slavic languages is required, but an active curiosity about how people use and change language will be a plus.


Students acquire foundational concepts in linguistic analysis which they will use to analyze a great array of language materials from modern Slavic languages, inductively writing rules which they then test with new data from other languages and drawing conclusions about the evolution of languages and the forces which shape them.  Rather than learn about these "exotic" languages through memorizing arbitrary rules and facts, students will learn a range of linguistic approaches to understand how languages change over time and to compare aspects of the Slavic languages, from alphabets to sound systems to vocabulary to verb systems.

GLLC Open Courses for Spring 2014

COURSES OFFERED through the Global Village Living Learning Center, Spring 2014

GLLC-G210 (29651)  Amazon Rhetoric: Global Perspectives on Women and Power (3 cr.) GenEd A&H; CASE A&H, CASE GCC) (TR, 4:00–5:15 pm, FQ 012A)

Valerie Wieskamp

Since ancient times, legends of “Amazons,” or warrior women, have captivated cultures around the world, indicating a global fascination with women in positions of power. In this class, we study rhetorical constructions of gender by examining representations of women warriors and powerful women. Drawing from a multidisciplinary body of literature, we compare representations of powerful women across cultures to determine if they challenge or reaffirm gender roles, and if they glorify or subvert war culture and violence. Students apply what they have learned for use in a comparative textual analysis. This final project is designed to encourage students to develop writing and argumentation skills, to conduct cross-cultural analysis, and to understand how to ethically represent other cultures. This course expands a popular summer course I taught exploring women warriors in U.S. popular culture, modifying it significantly to address issues of cross-cultural representation and to explore international examples.


GLLC-G220 (30870)  Decline of the West (3 cr.) (GenEd S&H; CASE S&H, CASE GCC) (MW, 4:00–5:15 pm, FQ 012A)

Matthew Slaboch

In his 2012 State of the Union address, Barack Obama proclaimed that “anyone who tells you that America is in decline or that our influence has waned doesn’t know what they’re talking about.” In spite of the president’s proclamations that their country remains as vibrant as ever, Americans are skeptical: Gallup’s “right track, wrong track” question revealed that only 18% of the public were satisfied with the state of their union at the time of the president’s address. Halfway across the globe, Europeans express dissatisfaction with the state of their own union by protesting high unemployment and economic uncertainty. Greece, the cradle of Western civilization, has staggering levels of debt with which it cannot cope. Meanwhile, there’s talk about the “rise of China.” Given what’s going on worldwide, we might ask “Is the West in Decline?” This course investigates, looking at economic, military, moral, artistic, and other types of decline.


GLLC-G320 (22538)  Espionage in the 21st Century (3 cr.) (CASE S&H) (TR, 2:30–3:45 pm, FQ 012B)

Gene Coyle

While some aspects of espionage have not changed in centuries, new technologies have changed the way that governments and corporations go about spying. We will explore how all these developments are creating enormous challenges for intelligence agencies in the 21st century. The course is taught by a 30-year veteran of the CIA.

NOTE: This section is open to sophomores and above; freshman who seek admission need to contact  Additional seats are reserved for GV residents and alumni. Please contact the Global Village at if class is closed.

Former CMCL Major Returns to IU Cinema to Screen Her Film

I'm hoping you can pass the word to the Communciations and Culture folks that Hannah Fidell is coming to IU Cinema this week to screen her film A Teacher and to participate in a Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecture. Hannah was a CMCL major at IUB.

It would be so great to have a lively turnout of students, staff, and faculty (and the community at large) to welcome her back and celebrate with her.

Another IU alum (from Theatre & Drama) - Eliza Hittman - will be here as well with her film It Felt Like Love.

A Teacher

  • 2013
  • Directed By: Hannah Fidell
  • Rated Not Rated
  • Drama
  • 100 Minutes
  1. Thursday, December 5, 2013 6:30 p.m.
  2. Sunday, December 8, 2013 6:30 p.m.

Part psychological thriller and part provocative character study, A Teacher explores the unraveling of a young high school teacher, Diana (Lindsay Burdge), after she begins an affair with one of her teenage students. What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex and dangerous as the beautiful and confident Diana gets fully consumed by her emotions, crossing boundaries and acting out in progressively startling ways. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment. (2K DCP presentation)

Director Hannah Fidell is scheduled to be present.Hannah Fidell is a director/writer/producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Recently named to Filmmaker Magazine’s annual ‘25 New Faces of Independent Film’ list, Hannah had two short films, The Gathering Squall and Man & Gun played at SXSW in 2012. In May, Hannah attended the Champs-Elysees Film Festival where A Teacher was awarded the U.S. In-Progress Grand Prize. Hannah is also an alumna of Indiana University.

Naked Lunch reading

Monday Dec 9, The Burroughs Century group will be presenting a public staged reading of 

William Burroughs' novel NAKED LUNCH at Rachael's Cafe; 4-11 p.m.

The event is a fundraiser for the Burroughs Century symposium and celebration, a 5-day festival featuring art exhibits, films, music and a conference to celebrate Burroughs' 100th birthday.

 For the reading- you can come for all or any part of it-- and if you'd like to help us read the novel, there will be a sign-up sheet.  Readers will also be eligible for some Burroughs memorabalia that one of our committee members has generously donated.  Take a break from dead week woes and come for a beer, some of Rachael's lasagna, and a public reading of some of the best writing of the 20th century.  This is a fundraiser, so please bring a buck or two for the hat.

For more information, contact Joan Hawkins (

Unique Spring 14 course offering that crosses disciplines: Rules, Games, and Society


This is appropriate for Juniors and Seniors and quite unique in it’s design.


E400/V450 MW 9:30–10:45 a.m., Tocqueville Room, Ostrom Workshop, 513 N. Park Ave.


In 2009, Indiana University’s Elinor “Lin” Ostrom was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. Now, for the first time, undergraduate honors students from the Hutton Honors College, SPEA, and other social science departments can enroll in a seminar structured around Lin’s most important contributions to understanding (and sometimes even solving) social and environmental problems. The seminar in “Rules, Games, and Society” will teach students about social and ecological problems that can only be avoided (or reduced) by collective (or group) action.

The course will be taught at The Vincent and Elinor Ostrom Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis by two of Lin’s close collaborators, Dan Cole (Law, SPEA) and Burney Fischer (SPEA), and structured around a new textbook authored by two more of her close collaborators, Marty Anderies and Marco Janssen. Their book, Sustaining the Commons, is freely available on the Internet under a Creative Commons license. The text will be supplemented with readings from some of Lin’s own writings.                       


Topics covered in the course include: (1) the varied nature of resource problems; (2) the structure of social institutions and organizations; (3) Lin’s two frameworks for analyzing social interactions over natural resources—the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework and the Social-Ecological System (SES) framework; (4) the theory of games and its potential for contributing to our understanding of social (or “collective-action”) problems; (5) case studies in the management of water, forests, and other resources, and the derivation of “design principles” for successful management regimes from those case studies; (6) laboratory experiments as a method for investigating individual and social decision making; (7) the varied nature of social rules and norms for managing resources; and (8) applications of Lin’s frameworks and methods to various problems ranging from intellectual property to public health and sports.


This 3-credit course will be taught via a combination of lectures, guest lectures by other experts, and active discussion. Students will be split into two groups. Each week, students in one of the groups will each prepare and post memos (1–2 pages), discussing, analyzing, and raising questions about that week’s readings. Sometime around the middle of the semester, students will decide on paper topics, with final papers to be turned in before the semester ends with the Workshop’s traditional “mini-conference,” at which student papers are presented and discussed by faculty and advanced graduate students. Grades will be determined by the combination of biweekly memos, class attendance and participation, and the final paper.
