This panel discussion follows on from a month-long online reading group which focused on the issue of “decolonizing sonic cyberfeminisms,” raising questions about the Eurocentric conceptualisations of technology, sound and gender implicit in much recent activism around these themes. It precedes a larger event planned for 4-5th May 2017 at the University of Lincoln which will continue to explore Sonic Cyberfeminisms. In addressing the issue of “Doing Sonic Cyberfeminisms,” the panel will explore what is at stake in the “now” of electronic music, audio production and sound arts, and asks what possible strategies of sonic resistance can be practiced
The panel will consist of presentations by Marlo de Lara (University of Leeds), Ari Robey-Lawrence (Goldsmiths/Berlin Community Radio), Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura (TTB / NTS Radio / TRUANTS), Marie Thompson (University of Lincoln) and will be chaired by Annie Goh (Goldsmiths).
Organized by Annie Goh (Screen and Audiovisual Research Unit, Department of Media and Communications, Goldsmiths) and Marie Thompson (Extra Sonic Practice, School of Film and Media, University of Lincoln).
This event is FREE and open to all.
