Black Feminist Futures and the Practice of Fugitivity

Tina Campt

What kinds of ‘practice’ create possibilities for new feminist futures? How do our everyday engagements with power complicate how we understand feminist struggle? This talk uses a black feminist conception of practice to think beyond conventional notions of resistance as the primary model for understanding the relationship of marginalized subjects to power. Focusing on archival […]

Gender, Justice, and Neoliberal Transformations

Guest edited by Elizabeth Bernstein and Janet R. Jakobsen

This issue of The Scholar & Feminist Online forges new ground by weaving together issues of gender and sexuality, usually sidelined in conversations about neoliberalism, with questions of the economy and political processes. Emerging out of a 2012 international workshop on the mutual imbrication of economic, cultural, and political structures of neoliberalism with the vast changes in gendered and sexual life, “Gender, Justice, and Neoliberal Transformations” seeks new lines of inquiry to explore the extreme disparities of wealth across the globe, as well as new and old forms of social inequality.

Recorded Oct 23, 2012

Since visual images invoke the spectator's experience of unmediated access to the inner world of the subject, the evocative power of photographic images may readily reproduce forms of voyeurism. This under-theorizing becomes particularly problematic in projects that document the lives of migratory and marginalized women. Drawing on several decades of prior field research and documentary film projects, Professor Haaken presents a study carried out with women refugee and asylum-seekers in the UK. In discussing photographic images from the study, Haaken provides a framework for working through a series of ethical, political, and methodological dilemmas. She draws on psychoanalytic feminist theory, critical psychology, and participatory action research methods to argue for the importance of an approach to the visual that includes the dynamics of spectatorship as well as the dynamics of the research setting itself as an affectively rich and conflicted site of knowledge production.

Moving Images: Psychoanalytically-Informed Methods in Documenting the Lives of Women Migrants and Asylum-Seekers

Janice Haaken

Many contemporary feminist projects attempt to subvert the male gaze by “bearing witness” to female trauma through visual representation. Yet these projects have tended to be under-theorized. Since visual images invoke the spectator’s experience of unmediated access to the inner world of the subject, the evocative power of photographic images may readily reproduce forms of […]

A New Queer Agenda

Joseph N. DeFilippis, Lisa Duggan, Kenyon Farrow, and Richard Kim

With this issue of The Scholar & Feminist Online, the Barnard Center for Research on Women celebrates our ongoing collaboration with Queers for Economic Justice. Through this partnership, we have been engaging activists, academics and organizers around a vision and practice of cross-issue organizing that sees gender and sex as central to issues like immigration, poverty, homelessness, gentrification, and drug use. “A New Queer Agenda” pushes beyond the vision of security and belonging offered through gay marriage to a broader politics of economic, political and sexual justice for all.
