Unsettling the Feminist/Queer Archive: A Roundtable Discussion

Unsettling the Feminist/Queer Archive: A Roundtable Discussion

April 12 @ 3:00 pm 4:15 pm

The 4th Annual Laboratory of Feminist Memory presents: Intimate Dwellings

Part 1: The 4th Annual Laboratory of Feminist Memory presents Intimate Dwelling

Home much? In this two-part pandemic edition, we ask our quarantining artist/scholars to consider the home as a generative space for feminist/queer counter archives of all kinds.

This is a free virtual event. Register below for access.

Part I: Unsettling the Feminist/Queer Archive: A Roundtable Discussion 

Date: Monday April 12th 
Time: 3:00-4:15pm 
This roundtable discussion brings together young scholars, filmmakers and artists, and curators using feminist/queer/decolonial approaches to think about their engagement with media archives, not only as a research method, but as a material, embodied site. Together, the guests will consider what lies outside of the realm of the institutional and colonial archive, the role of domestic and community archives, and how their creative and scholarly practices make space for other stories, gestures, and modes of being. 
Featuring: Ayanna Dozier, Amanda Ann-Min Wong, Morgan Sears-Williams, Geneviève Wallen

Part 2: Remediating the Feminist/Queer Archive: Objects in Domestic Space

Date: Monday April 13th 
Time: 7:00-9:00pm 
Event description: These artists, activists and poets will share stories that surround  personal objects or ‘artifact’s, engaging  with questions of archival erasure and resistance while also challenging notions of what a feminist archive is or is not.
Featuring: Laiwan, Margaret Christakos, Fauzia Rafique, Monica Garriso, Zainub Verjee and Shawna Dempsey.

Please note that this event will consist of two free virtual events that will take place over Zoom. Please register ahead of time to receive the Zoom link and password for both events. We will also be streaming the event live on our Facebook page.
