GWSS sponsered talk: "'Somebody Forgot to Tell Somebody Something' Feminist and Queer of Color Cultural Producation in the 80s amd 90s"

GWSS is sponsoring a talk titled "'Somebody Forgot to Tell Somebody Something': Feminist and Queer of Color Cultural Production in the 80s and 90s". This talk will be given by Professor Lisa Kahaleole Hall, from Women's and Gender Studies at Wells College. It will be held on March 14th, 2013 from 4:00pm-5:00pm at 125 Nolte Center for Continuing Education.

This talk focuses on re-remembering and reclaiming queer of color cultural work from the past, and asks what it takes to produce it in the present and future. What were the conditions that enabled artist intellectuals such as June Jordan, Audre Lorde, Gloria Anzaldua and Marlon Riggs to produce their transformative politically and personally revolutionary art, and how do we keep their legacy alive and growing?
Lisa Kahaleole Hall is a professor of Women's and Gender Studies at Wells College where she is interested in the intersections of race, colonialism, and indigeneity with gender and sexuality. She is currently engaged with two different scholarly projects--one an exploration of the space for the grassroots cultural productions of indigenous women and women of color in the US "Women in Print" movement of the 1970-90s, and the second a transnational comparison of indigenous feminisms in the US Hawaii, Australia and Aotearoa / New Zealand. Among other works, Professor Hall is the author of "Navigating Our Own 'Sea of Islands:' Remapping a Theoretical Space for Native Hawaiian Women and Indigenous Feminism" (2009) and "Strategies of Erasure: US Colonialism and Native Hawaiian Feminism" (2008).
