"The Feedback Loop of Contemporary Feminisms: Teaching, Learning, and Making"
Friday, March 08 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Even as consideration of the gaze and its role in images of women have now long been addressed, contemporary culture continues to offer a plethora of photographs that aid societal patterns demeaning to women. Many young women themselves replicate these dynamics, participating in and reifying the mass culture by which they are surrounded. Inspired by SPE Women's Caucus conversations, this panel offers dialogue on such issues as the role of gender, identity, and popular culture in student image making, replication of societal patterns and methods of intervention, and how panelists' experiences with feminism are addressed within our own classrooms and artwork.
