News from the LSFM Extra Sonic Practices (ESP) research group: in advance of future events at Lincoln and at Goldsmiths, Annie Goh and Marie Thompson are launching a 4 week online reading group, based loosely around the theme of decolonizing sonic cyberfeminisms. More information on the group and details of how to sign up can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/126311534504439/
They are hoping the reading group will help to establish some themes and generate interest in the planned Lincoln event in 2017.
This reading group will focus on the issue of decolonizing sonic cyberfeminisms. It will raise questions about the Eurocentric conceptualisations of technology, sound and gender implicit in much recent activism around these themes.
The reading group will take place from 4th November to 2nd December with a short reading or readings for each week. Discussions will take place via email.
To sign up, please email: soniccyberfeminisms@gmail.
