Date and Time: 
Monday, December 6, 2021. 12:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Zoom
Workshop: 
Matters of Voice
Meeting Description: 

Artist and scholar Ashon Crawley will be discussing the first chapter from his book, Blackpentecostal Breath: The Aesthetics of Possibility. The book examines the whooping, shouting, noise-making, and speaking in tongues of Black Pentecostalism—a multi-racial, multi-class, multi-national Christian sect with one strand of its modern genesis in 1906 Los Angeles—showing how these are important for imagining otherwise worlds of possibility and yield a methodology for reading culture in an era when such expressions are increasingly under siege. Gabriel Mindel (PhD Candidate, History of Consciousness, UCSC) will be offering a response.

This meeting will be virtual. RSVP to receive Zoom link. >>
