Queer Media Activism Series




What is the relationship between queer media and queer activism? How have queers, trans* folks, feminists, people of color, poor people, and people with disabilities harnessed media production practices in the service of social justice activism? How have local Philadelphia artists, activists, and academics mobilized to create films, video artworks, performances, training workshops, and courses that stretch beyond the local context and into the transnational public sphere? The Queer Media Activism Series examines the relationship between queer activism and queer media production through film screenings, lectures by transnational video artists, roundtables on social justice media making, live performances, and discussions about oral history media projects. The Queer Media Activism series explores these questions through a multimedia, multidisciplinary, and multi-sited series of events around Philadelphia during March and April 2013. This series is directed by Dr. Cathy Hannabach, Lecturer in GSWS.
