The USC Indigeneity and Decolonization Research Cluster will be hosting Lee Ann Wang in conversation with Chris Finley on April 24th from 2:00-3:30 in KAP 445, who will be delivering a talk entitled "Visuality, Violence, and the Law: Approaching Text (a rehearsal of writing)."
Visuality, Violence, and the Law: Approaching Text (a rehearsal of writing)
A workshop on experiments in conversations, and experiments in approaches to film and law as sites of indigenous feminist, black feminist, and women of color feminist writing practices. We engage with texts of visuality and the law as necessary and ongoing sites of critique but also, of endless creation and creativity. This rehearsal engages questions and approaches to settler colonial and heteropatriarchal violences through narrative and erasure as we discuss what is made and deciphered in settler colonial texts and different ways to write life and possibilities of freedom for women of color in writing practices.
