Death Beyond Disavowal

March 3, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

DeathBeforeDisavowalGrace Hong will be talking about her new book, Death Beyond Disavowal: The Impossible Politics of Difference, which utilizes “difference” as theorized by women of color feminists to analyze works of cultural production as expressing a powerful antidote to the erasures of contemporary neoliberalism. Death beyond Disavowal finds the memories of death and precarity that neoliberal ideologies attempt to erase.

Grace Kyungwon Hong is an associate professor of Gender Studies and Asian American Studies at UCLA. She is author of The Ruptures of American Capital (Minnesota, 2006) and coeditor of Strange Affinities: The Gender and Sexual Politics of Comparative Racialization. She is also a member of the CSW Advisory Committee.

Kara Keeling is an associate professor in the School of Cinematic Arts at USC. Her current research focuses on theories of temporality, spatial politics, finance capital, and the radical imagination; cinema and black cultural politics; digital media, globalization, and difference; and Gilles Deleuze and liberation theory, with an emphasis on Afrofuturism, Africana media, queer and feminist media, and sound. She is the author of The Witch’s Flight: The Cinematic, The Black Femme, and the Image of Common Senseand the co-editor of a special issue of American Quarterly called “Sound Clash: Listening to American Studies,” among many other publications.
