National Women's Studies Association Annual Conference
This roundtable brings together a group of scholar-artists-thinkers interested in the broader relationship between aesthetic practice, activism, and freedom. Drawing on iconography, the cult of celebrity, and pleasure, among other things, this roundtable grapples with the question, what might aesthetic practices provide to critiques of state violence, racial antagonism, and heteropatriarchy?
