A round-table event with Caetlin Benson-Allott (Oklahoma University) and Amherst faculty Amelie Hastie and Pooja Rangan
Scholars Benson-Allott, Hastie and Rangan each contributed work to a special issue of the new journal Feminist Media Histories (University of California Press) on feminist “Materialisms,” edited by Benson-Allott. This issue was designed “to demonstrate how feminist media historians are incorporating materialism into their research in new inter- and contradisciplinary ways.” As Benson-Allott wrote, “The personal is political-- this much we know. So too is the material political. To explore that concept, this collection of articles expands conventional definitions of object and material, challenging received notions about what counts as a media object in order to explore how objects affect gendered media cultures and feminist media practices.”
