Predators in jail, matriarchs rising up…

Where is the joy in killing joy? What kind of pleasures do our archives and activism yield? What does feminist laughter sound like? How do we move beyond mourning; can there be a feminist praxis of irreverent joy?

Following from the success of the Laboratory of Feminist Memory I and II, the last event in the Studio for Media Activism and Critical Thought’s speakers series this year (Pleasures of Resistance) is the Laboratory of Feminist Memory III: Laughter, Joy, and Pleasure. The third iteration of the Laboratory is dedicated to exploring the joys of being a killjoy, unruly laughs, pleasurable insurrections, and other contagious affects of dissent through the prism of feminist and queer archives, media, art, and activism.

Come join us for this irreverent cabaret-style event, which will feature art, prose, poetry, films/videos and performances — you do not want to miss it!
