The Asian American Feminist Collective presents a roundtable on gender-based violence featuring guest Winnie Li. The roundtable will be on Tuesday, June 19 from 6:30 - 8 pm at 239 Greene Street, Room 205.
Bringing together ongoing discussions from #MeToo with Asian American feminism, topics in this roundtable include the racialized dimensions of gender-based violence and also discussing how media-making and storytelling serve as interventions to cultures of violence and also supports healing from trauma.
Winnie M Li is a PhD researcher at the Department of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics working on a project about the impact of social media on the public discourse about rape and sexual assault. She is the author of the novel Dark Chapter and also the artistic director and co-founder of the Clear Lines Festival.
This session is intended for people of color, highlighting those who self-identify as Asian, South Asian, West Asian, and/or Pacific Islander, and/or a member of those diasporas.
