Roundtable: Feminist and Queer Studies of Race in Sound

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This roundtable convenes two fields of scholarly inquiry—critical race studies and feminist theory/queer studies—to explore the following interrelated questions: How does sound construct racialized and gendered meaning and/or prompt processes of racial subjection? How might various hermeneutics of sound enrich and/or expand current ethnic and gender studies approaches to the study of racial formation? And how might we collectively forge a feminist, queer analytic for the study of racialized sound and sonic processes of racialization?

With: Kirstie Dorr, Roshanak Kheshti, and Deborah Vargas

Moderator: Kevin Fellezs
