If you are in the Bay Area this Thursday, pls mark your calendar for a special conference on women of color pedagogy and praxis
We'll be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the Center for Race and Gender.
Im especially thrilled for this conference, as we'll be discussing radical ways to utilize technology/new media, dismantle the prison industrial complex, and
sparking the struggle for Ethnic Studies, through feminist of color praxis.
Honored to be moderating the first panel, Media, Maps, & Motion.
Speakers will map the ways in which widely-used technologies can transmit information
related to survival strategies across geographic boundaries while subverting policed
pathways of communication.
The more than fabulous and inspiring panelists include:
Ricardo Dominguez! Micha Cardenas! Alexis Pauline Gumbs!
and Kebo Drew of Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project!
Im also so thrilled as my mentor and friend Isela Gonzlez! and Allyse Gray! from
Forensic AIDS Project will be presenting on their radical feminist work in HIV/AIDS education,
including our project on digital storytelling in the SF jail, From the Center.
Just a few of the amazing amazing speakers
present for the conference! With Andrea Smith speaking for the keynote!
& we'll have nifty HASTAC! brochures to hand out to folks
interested in learning more about the radical amazing work of HASTAC and new media
feministy work! Esp exciting since Micha Cardenas!
was such a vital part of our HASTAC Queer and Feminist New Media Spaces Forum,
so should be a great time!
