I’ll be headed to Stanford at the end of September for the Feminisms & Rhetorics Conference. I’m on a panel with a bunch of cool folks from MSU where we’ll be talking about queer disruptions of power. Yeah!
Panel H5: Queerly Disrupting Power In Communities and the Academy
Thursday, Sept. 26th, 2:15-3:30
Dissing the Academy: Doing Queer Feminist Video Work
The Gender Project is a series of documentaries about the lived experiences of gender and sexuality. It’s also a queer feminist dissertation research project set within the academic power structure. This presenter will identify the institutional and systemic barriers to this dissertation project, as well as discuss the negotiations and maneuvering required to submit (queer feminist) videos as academic writing for the completion and granting of a doctoral degree.
