It’s no secret that the video games industry boasts supremely sexually objectified, stereotyped, and downright oppressive portrayals of women. In this talk Anita Sarkeesian explains why. She will give a broad overview of the culture that sustains harassment, exclusion, and objectification in gaming, from the dynamics of sexist cybermobs to recurring tropes in video games that reinforce sexist conceptions of women, before concluding with a look at a few games that manage to get it right.

Being a fan usually starts with loving a given series, franchise, author, band, game, etc., but it rarely ends there. For many, fandom provides a sense of community, a catalyst for producing original creative content, or both. Flourish Klink and Elizabeth Minkel, creators and hosts of Fansplaining, will discuss their adventures in podcasting and fan culture, and how, perhaps even with a little help from the two of them, fans and the creative industries may have learned to stop worrying and love each other.

Toraya (AKA Crankbunny) will discuss her work in illustration, animation and paper engineering as well as her journey as a freelance artist.

Please join us for an evening with Frederick Wiseman. In our conversation with this award-winning documentary filmmaker, we will explore the creative process that drives his work, as well as his approach to our shared human experience. We will also watch excerpts from his acclaimed documentary EX LIBRIS and we will have the opportunity to ask him questions. A reception will be held in the Woolley Room immediately following the talk.  This event is sponsored by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation through Wheaton College’s initiative on integrative learning in the humanities. All are welcome to attend.

Campus movie showings: Four screenings of EX LIBRIS  have been scheduled in advance of Mr. Wiseman’s visit. Click here for dates and times to watch one of the campus movie showings that fits your schedule.
