As part of an ongoing partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Antenna and SCMS’s Cinema Journal, Stefania Marghitu gives a first-hand report straight from the 21st anniversary of Console-ing Passions at De Montfort University in Leicester, UK.
A manifesta for feminist media criticism.
I want to do what I can to help keep this thing—feminist media studies—going for as long as it’s needed. I want to be the feminist media scholar I want to see in the world.
As befits Console-ing Passions’ twentieth anniversary, we are looking forward to using next week’s gathering to take a pulse on the field of feminist studies.
I came away from Console-ing Passions with ongoing questions regarding why feminism seems lost at times in contemporary media scholarship and the place of feminism in my own work and life.
