Podcast Series: Queer & Trans Voices

Description

This podcast series addresses central themes of my interdisciplinary research, and is divided into two parts:

‘The Case for (Prison) Abolition’ and ‘Building the Archive.’

 

In the first part of the series, I am in conversation with activist scholars Jen Manion and Dylan Rodriguez, and representatives of prison abolitionist organizations, Dominique Morgan and Kimberly Mckenzie, to discuss the creative & collective processes of an abolitionist praxis, and to talk about what it means to practice abolition.

 

The second part of the series is centered around the archival process of my project. It features interviews with sound artists and scholars Sharon Daniel and Liz Canfield who have collaborated on their projects with incarcerated people, and situates my project’s sonic archive along with their projects. In these conversations, I discuss the collective and creative practices of our projects, and examine the ways in which these relate to an abolitionist praxis.
