Roewan Crowe, associate professor in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Winnipeg

In this talk, Roewan Crowe, associate professor in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Winnipeg, will share the collaborative project and digital book, Return Atacama. Based on the collective work of the artist collective CONSTELACIONES — Crowe, Doris Difarnecio, Christina Hajjar, Monica Martinez and Helene Vosters — this richly visual collection from the HemiPress Gesture Series (2019) incorporates photography, video, drone footage, poetry and prose to produce a polyphonic experience of this politically urgent performance.

Blurring the distinction between artistic and scholarly work, both the performance and this publication, which bears its name, probe the possibilities and limits of transnational creative collaboration, while “challenging the containment of trauma associated with political violence within isolated historical events and disciplinary or geographic locations.”
