January Research Network Meeting Audio Recordings

See the bottom of this post to listen to the fascinating and thought-provoking presentations at our research network meeting last week. The speakers were:

Onyeka Igwe and J.D. Stokely: Memory, Representation & the Archive: The Use of Autoethnography in Performance and Film.

Kabe Wilson: The Intersectionality of Football Terrace Hate Speech

Onyeka Igwe: still from her film 'We need new names'
Onyeka Igwe and J.D. Stokely "Our work is interested in the idea of using archived materials to create a "necessary fiction" that explores the complexities of our ancestral histories. How can we as artists challenge the western simplification and belittling of black history through auto-ethnographic practices?

J.D. Stokley: performative lecture 'Reparations'
Kabe Wilson: The intersectionality of foootball terrace hate speech
Kabe Wilson "Through the lens of Stuart Hall's theory of 'inferential' racism, I will unpick the ways in which the complexity of intersectional hate speech means that the essentialist narratives of media and legal assessment remain inadequate tools for responding to it."
