"Imagining Otherwise: Gender Violence and Resistant Imaginations"

José Medina (Northwestern University)

This talk will explore how gender violence intersects with racist and transphobic violence and how those intersections are erased or distorted in public discourse. I will examine the communicative dysfunctions that exist around the phenomenon of gender violence and how sexist, transphobic, and racist imaginaries make women of color especially vulnerable to violence and distort their experiences as victims of violence. I will discuss how we can exercise the imagination in resistant ways and how we can resist those communicative dysfunctions and oppressive imaginaries by imagining otherwise. I will discuss some specific cases of gender violence and the ways in which they were distorted in the media coverage, showing how critically engaged publics can resist those distortions.

Veranstalter:

Institut für Philosophie der Goethe-Universität in Kooperation mit dem Exzellenzcluster "Die Herausbildung normativer Ordnungen" und dem Cornelia Goethe Centrum für Frauenstudien und die Erforschung der Geschlechterverhältnisse
