[Worcester] “Representing Ourselves into Existence”: Tracing the History of Trans Filmmaking in the United States and Canada
February 3, 2020 at 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM
|Location:||Razzo Hall at Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts|
Despite recent attention to representations of trans people in media, media created by trans people is often overlooked. Creating and circulating audiovisual media is a particularly powerful way to create new representations and new worlds. In this talk, Dr. Laura Horak (Carleton University) will present a history of trans, Two Spirit, intersex, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming film- and video-making in the United States and Canada, from the beginning of cinema to today. Horak will also present the Transgender Media Portal which will be a new resource for learning about trans-made films and videos.
