becoming cyborg: A Black Feminist, the Living Camera, Participatory Democracy, and Their Weaving
A Multimedia Presentation by Fran Huckaby
Based on the digitally born ethnographic film project, Public Education Project: Participatory Democracy in Times of Privatization, this multimedia presentation explores cyborg weaving as a renewed possibility for participatory democracy. Huckaby and her camera together become the living camera, the participatory camera, the cine-eye-ear —cyborg. This feminist scholarship born of necessity witnesses, documents, analyzes, and (re)presents the counterstories and activism of marginalized and displaced communities in the struggle to claim education at a time when receiving it is threatened.

Listening to Gossip in the Queer Archives
Researching the history of same-sex desire poses unique problems. Many men and women purposely sought to deflect attention from their unconventional choices in their own lifetimes, and family members often destroyed letters and diaries after a “queer” family member’s death. How do writers and researchers today use alternative archives–household objects, the exchange of handmade gifts, even gardens and buildings–to tell the stories that have been hidden from history?

The L Word: Remembering the Ladies of Llangollen
In 1778, as the Age of Revolution turned European society upside down, two Irish heiresses eloped from their families to a picturesque cottage in Wales. They were seeking privacy and freedom, but ironically, their home in Llangollen became one of their adopted homeland’s most-visited tourist spots, attracting Edmund Burke, William Wordsworth, and many other travellers on the busy Bristol-to-Cardiff highway. Opinion was divided about whether the Ladies of Llangollen were scandalous sapphists or admirably selfless romantic friends. In this talk, Lisa Moore reflects on her own search for the meaning of the Ladies of Llangollen over the last three decades.
