Like Water and Oil Never Assimilating

Workshop: Wednesday, September 27, 2017 | 7-9PM

As ‘others’ — POC, queer, immigrant, disabled — how do we achieve visibility while navigating the traps of white narrative paradigms? How do we reconnect to our inherited stories without re-enacting dynamics of fetishization, internalized from a lifetime of contact with this master narrative? Inspired by the mistranslations, faulty delivery, and awkward immediacy of these struggles for narrative independence, this workshop will examine how reinvention of the archive, whether drawing from folk- or personal lore, can become a powerful opportunity for subversion.
