2016 Workshop

The focus of the Decolonial Feminist Politics workshop for the summer of 2016 is the work of Trinh T. Minh-ha (1952- ).

Trinh T. Minh-ha is a Vietnamese theorist and filmmaker. You can access her personal website here, which includes a list of her films, books, music, and art installations. Her works address feminism, postcoloniality, immigration and refugeeism, and indigenous theory. Of particular interest are her books such as When the Moon Waxes Red: Representation, gender and cultural politics (Routledge 1991) and Woman, Native, Other: Writing postcoloniality and feminism (Indiana University Press 1989). We are also hoping to integrate several of Minh-ha’s films into the workshop; films will be shown in the evening.
