Peggy Ahwesh: The Third Body

“One of the most important filmmakers of her generation, Peggy Ahwesh produces work that is by turns excessively corporeal and intensely cerebral, formal and formless. Her films and videos occupy an indeterminate zone where anthropology, politics, science, and aesthetics promiscuously mix and intermingle. An impressive line up of speakers – including Elinor Cleghorn, Elena Gorfinkel, Sam Ladkin, Michele Pierson and John David Rhodes – will explore this fascinating body of work.”

Queer, Feminist and Social Media Praxis Workshop

Feminism, queer activism and queer studies have engaged with questions of technology, computing, and social media. In this workshop we are interested in exploring a range of themes around mediation and gender/sexuality activism – and particularly how digital technologies, art and social media can present possibilities or impossibilities for social equality.
