The workshop uses two sets of media artifacts to incite a discussion about sex, race, and politics. The artifacts will remain a surprise, but in a broad sense they emerge from and are addressed to publics largely distinct from academic cultures, addressing as they do in very direct terms themes of sexual pleasure and radical direct action. The idea here will be to confront and expand our limits and capacities of engaging, reflecting on, and discussing a few very material aspects of the political present. Expect triggering, ambivalence, optimism, and more.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture.
