Digital media scholar Dr. Wendy Chun will lead a discussion on OSU Dr. Jian Chen’s manuscript-in-progress Trans Mediation: Trans & Queer Film and Digital Media in a Time of Networks. Chen’s manuscript focuses on Asian American and Asian transnational trans, queer, and gender nonconforming film and digital media art and activism that crosses the mediums of film, video, performance, music, video games, installation, and information. Trans Mediation argues for a renewed trans and queer racial cultural politics attuned to the technological mediation of 21st century culture and mediated culture’s entanglements with networked political economies of war, governance, corporate finance, and bioscience. The workshop offers a chance for Dr. Chun and attendees to provide feedback on a manuscript being developed for publication.
Late afternoon dessert, tea, and coffee served.
