Doing Sonic Cyberfeminisms @ Goldsmiths, Dec 2

1 December 2016

The Doing Sonic Cyberfeminisms: strategies of sonic resistance panel discussion is on at London’s Goldsmiths University on December 2. 

The event is chaired by Berlin-based artist and DJ Annie Goh and will feature presentations by Marlo de Lara who is currently completing a PhD from the University of Leeds, Ari Robey-Lawrence from Berlin Community RadioTabitha Thorlu-Bangura of NTS Radio and Marie Thompson who lectures at the University of Lincoln. 

The event follows on from a month-long reading group that aimed to raise questions about “the Eurocentric conceptualisations of technology, sound and gender implicit in much recent activism around these themes.” The panel will “explore what is at stake in the “now” of electronic music, audio production and sound arts, and asks what possible strategies of sonic resistance can be practiced.”
