Expanding the Reach of the Global Feminisms Oral History Archive, one of the Collaboratory’s current Project Grant teams, hosted Luciane Ramos Silva and Nabor Jr. in the Collaboratory at a lunch on February 26. Silva and Nabor Jr. were visiting the Collaboratory in connection with the launch of the 21st issue of the Afro-Brazilian magazine “O Menelick 2⁰ Ato” and of its curated edition in English.
A special digital and print exhibit of selected magazine covers by Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Diasporic artists will be on display until March 11th in the Hatcher Library Gallery, in front of the Collaboratory space.
This exhibit is part of the O Menelick 2Ato: Art, Culture and Society From the Perspective of Contemporary Brazilian Black Press series of events.
Luciane Ramos Silva—Afro-Brazilian anthropologist, choreographer, dancer and editor of the digital and print magazine O Menelick 2⁰ Ato—was interviewed for the Global Feminisms Project in the fall of 2018. The Collaboratory lunch was a special meeting at which the team met and discussed Silva’s work as an interdisciplinary scholar, artist, and feminist activist. Attendees shared accounts of their feminist research, scholarship, and activism from a range of perspectives and places worldwide.
