1. An Evening with Guillermo Gómez-Peña
March 18

In his latest solo work, “El border brujo” draws from his 30 year old “living archive” and combines new and classic performance material to present a unique perspective on the immediate future of the Americas. His-self styled “imaginary activism” invokes performance art as a form of radical democracy and citizenship.

Combining spoken word poetry, activist theory, radical storytelling and language experimentation, Gómez-Peña offers critical and humorous commentary about the art world, academia, new technologies, the culture of war and violence in the US, organized crime in Mexico, gender and race politics, and the latest wave of complications surrounding gentrification in the “creative city”.

Besides his international work with the legendary troupe La Pocha Nostra, he has presented his solo work at museums, universities, galleries and theatres throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Australia and South Africa.

Gómez-Peña’s unique format reveals to an audience the process of creating, languaging and performing material and this process becomes the actual project. It is precisely in his new solo work where Gómez-Peña’s literature, theory, activism, pedagogy and live art come together in a wonderfully strange mix.

Gómez-Peña has spent many years developing his unique solo style, “a combination of embodied poetry, performance activism and theatricalizations of postcolonial theory.” In his ten books, as in his live performances, digital art, videos and photo-performances, he pushes the boundaries still further, exploring what’s left for artists to do in a repressive global culture of censorship, paranoid nationalism and what he terms “the mainstream bizarre.” Gómez-Peña examines where this leaves the critical practice of artists who aim to make tactical, performative interventions into our notions of culture, race and sexuality. Most recently he has also been exploring the poetic and activist use of new technologies and social media.

12. Faculty: Extension of Deadline for Nominations for Academic Senate Executive Council

From 2016 Academic Senate Election Commissioners James Armstrong (jarmstro@ccsf.edu, 415-452-5397) and Karen Saginor (ksaginor@ccsf.edu, 415-452-5571):

Because of a low number of faculty nominated by March 11, the deadline for nominations has been extended to 1 PM on Friday, March 18th, in accordance with the Academic Senate constitution and bylaws. In addition, candidates now need only one person (in addition to themselves) to sign the nominating petition.  

The Executive Council is the top level of faculty representation at City College.  Serving on the EC is crucial to the working of the college. Please consider running for the Academic Senate Executive Council. The Executive Council is the body that oversees all Academic Senate activities, including faculty participation in college governance, and represents the CCSF faculty in matters ranging from accreditation to art preservation. Whatever your area of expertise or interest might be, it is needed and appreciated on the Executive Council! If you are not available yourself, please encourage a colleague to do so. There are 16 openings on the council for this election, and all CCSF faculty members (including part-time, noncredit, and non-instructional faculty) are eligible to run for seats and to nominate candidates.

To run for Executive Council, you need to be nominated by only one other faculty member. Fill out the Petition for Nomination, have it signed by a nominating faculty member, and submit it to the Academic Senate Office, Conlan Hall room E-202 (Ocean campus mailbox E202). We also strongly encourage each candidate to submit a candidate statement, which can be up to 200 words (longer statements will be truncated). Candidate statements must be submitted electronically as MS Word files and should be emailed to senelect@ccsf.edu. Petitions for Nomination and candidate statements must be received by 1:00 PM on Friday, March 18, 2016.

Election information and nomination forms are available on the Academic Senate website or by clicking the links below. Questions may be directed to individual election commissioners or emailed to senelect@ccsf.edu.
