Event Details

Join scholars, artists, educators, activists, therapists, and other professionals who work with girls for hands-on workshops, presentations of innovative scholarship, round table discussions, and film screenings. The 2013 program will focus on issues of girls and the body, food justice, masculinities, and feminist arts pedagogy.  On May 29th the art collective Disorientalism will present work from The Food Groups, a five-part series focusing on race and labor in American food production and promotion. One-by-one, the Disorientals encounter five historical food industry characters: Wendy of Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers, Aunt Jemima, Land O’Lakes’ Indian Maiden, Sun-Maid and Chiquita Banana. In their encounters with these iconic identities, the Disorientals undertake efforts to erase the distinction between the depersonalized production and the personalized promotion of industrial food.
