Fall 2013 Events
- Tuesday: October 1st, 2013 -- Adele C. Licona, "Stories and Bodies-So-Far: Queer/ed Relational Re/Mixings as Coalitional Gestures". An exploration of queer youth-driven participatory media projects that produce (and are produced by) remixed stories and bodies. Such queer/ed remixings challenge dominant cultural logics of embodied coherence by disarticulating (and rearticulating) gender, sexuality, anatomy, and desire. This talk will consider the possibilities of coalitional gestures at work in these corporeal and narrative remixings and how such gestures might intervene in rhetorical appeals to "exceptional" youth.
