Gender Talk (formerly Peanut Butter & Gender)
(Women's & Gender Studies Program)

Che Gossett will present "Abolitionist Enchantment: Black Trans Art in the Afterlife of Slavery."
Respondent: Jakeya Caruthers
"In my talk, titled 'Abolitionist Enchantment', I examine Black trans visual art and cinema and how Black trans artists trouble the politics of visibility. The afterlife of slavery as Saidiya Hartman says, is an 'aesthetic problem'. I show how Black trans artists and aesthetics demonstrate a disenchantment with representation and how these artists resist visibility through 'critical fabulation' and speculation. In resisting visibility, these artists also refuse to disappear."
