Demain, 27 septembre 2017 : « Engagez-vous, vous êtes cerné.e.s », la manifestation nationale

Bannière manif nationale 27 septembre 2017

Dans le cadre de la campagne Engagez-vous pour le communautaire, les organismes d’action communautaire autonome se donnent rendez-vous le mercredi 27 septembre 2017 pour une action nationale à Québec. Après une marche du mouvement communautaire autonome québécois, une grande chaîne humaine. Les événements débuteront à 13h, au Parc de l’Amérique française, dans la Haute-Ville de Québec, d’où on marchera jusqu’à l’Assemblée nationale.

J’y serai! Et vous? Les organismes communautaires autonomes sont essentiels à la démocratie; ils ont besoin d’un financement adéquat pour remplir leur mission sociale et démocratique avec et auprès de la population!

Call for papers: Visualizing Protest: Transnational Approaches to the Aesthetics of Dissent

Call for papers: Visualizing Protest: Transnational Approaches to the Aesthetics of Dissent
Issue 14, Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology

Special Issue Editors: Dr. Veronika Novoselova, Dr. Ela Przybylo, and Dr. Sara Rodrigues

Deadline for submissions: January 12, 2018.

In this issue, we invite contributors to engage with how protest is visualized, that is, rendered visual in the form of iconography and through social media, and imagined as a utopian project of feminist, queer, and anti-racist worldmaking. Inviting scholarship and creative engagements from the overlapping perspectives of feminist media studies, transnational feminist theory, critical race studies, visual studies, and postcolonial digital humanities, this special issue examines the aesthetics of feminist protests in terms of their networked circulations—as well as their affective bonds and material contexts. Exploring the emerging modes of visibility, networked solidarity, and collaborative knowledge production, “Visualizing Protest” seeks to examine the relationships between the aesthetics of feminist transnational protest and digital revolt in a dynamic, polymedia context characterized by amateur remixing, instantaneous sharing, immaterial labour, corporate ownership of digital platforms, and institutionalized state surveillance of social media.

This issue will look at the function of feminist symbols and signs in protests, and their importance for feminist transnational mobilizing. We are interested in explorations of key on- and offline fabrics of protest, including: intersectional and anti-racist signs and slogans; text-based art; pussy symbology, clothing, and protest gear; mobile apps for feminist activism; protest recruiting posters, memes, and tweets; emojis and Snapchat and Instagram filters; and craft activisms.
