Join us for a cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural event in an innovative and open format featuring dance, talks, poetry, film excerpts and music. This event will take place in the Martin E. Segal Theatre at the The Graduate Center, CUNY. Free and open to the public.

How do we access the past from a present perspective and in the hope of a future? This event explores the role of the body in embodying historical trauma, and in performing and transforming sociopolitical relations. Bringing together artists and scholars of diverse gender identities and various backgrounds (including Jewish European, Italian-American, and African-European), this evening centers the relations between individual and institutional archival processes. Building from the experiences gained at the International Symposium: Moving Memory organized by Layla Zami and Oxana Chi at Technical University in Berlin in 2016, this international gathering offers scholars, students, artists, and any interested individuals the possibility to learn, exchange, and network.

Featuring: Jaime Shearn Coan, Dr. Layla Zami, Oxana Chi, Dr. Jill Strauss, and Iemanja Brown.

Co-sponsored by the Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality (IRWGS) at Columbia University in the City of New York, and The Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
