I’m super excited to share that I’ve lined up 17 guests (!!!) for my gender studies class on Feminist Politics in Korea and the Korean Diaspora that I’m teaching this quarter. It’s a series of 14 conversations over 8 weeks with some of the most kick-ass brilliant social justice activists and inspiring filmmakers. It’ll be all on Zoom — open to the public, with registration required. The class has about 40 students who are working with me to organize, prepare questions, and will help introduce the guests and facilitate the conversation.
The series features a range of activists engaged in legal advocacy, direct organizing, and movement building work as well as 4 phenomenal filmmakers. Five of the guests will be joining us from South Korea, and I hope to provide Korean-to-English interpretation through live closed captions — an experiment in translation I’ve been wanting to try.
Stephanie Cho from Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta is kicking off the series next week. Please register on Eventbrite.
More details are coming soon, but here’s the page where you can find registration info for the future events when they’re ready: otherwise.net/feminist.
