  • Add to Calendar 2023-02-16 16:00:00 2023-02-16 17:30:00 Speculative Collage This year, the Digital Humanities Center is bringing back our monthly learning community on Speculative Technologies for Liberatory Worlds to build capacity for what adrienne maree brown calls “radical imagination,” where “all efforts to bend the arc of the future towards justice, is science fictional behavior.” Come build community with students, staff, and faculty and explore imaginative possibilities through hands-on activities, critical play games, and more. In this fifth session, we will be exploring the method of collage as a vernacular design practice which uses images, live materials, words, and more to create new compositions that speak to our values and our visions of the past, present, and future. We will be working with images and documents sourced from Quandra Prettyman's collection of Ebony magazines and the Ntozake Shange Papers. Collaging tools will be provided for this session but attendees are encouraged to bring materials such as photographs, pressed leaves, paper, and fabric to add to their own works. This session will be hosted in collaboration with the Barnard Zine Library and the Barnard Archives and Special Collections.  Image Barnard Gaze, created by Jazmin Maço, Cover of Composite: A Collage Workshop ZineThe learning community will be held on the following dates (all Thursdays) from 4:00-5:30 PM: 9/15, 10/13, 11/10, 12/8, 1/26, 2/16, 3/9, 4/13. You don't have to attend every session--drop in when you can!
