This network shows us how the absences, or received lack, in one publishing project generates desire for new ones. These panelists will share their personal memories of scenes and magazines as sites of discursive community, reflecting on how one magazine can emerge as a response to another.

Listening for Hope in the Sound Archive — Apr 21, 2021 (Events)

Virtual Participation - RSVP for Zoom Link

In this listening practice, guide-hosts Jason Camlot and Katherine McLeod take up the call of SpokenWeb organizational partner Blue Metropolis to conduct an event that explores the theme of hope in relation to the archival pursuits of our research network.  To this end, we invite past guides of SpokenWeb listening practices, and all members of the SpokenWeb network, to select a short (30 second max) sound clip from their archival or other research interests that sounds an idea or feeling of hope, for us to listen to and discuss together.

Desire Lines: Setting A Tone — Mar 26, 2021 (Events)

Virtual Participation - Art Gallery of York University - RSVP Link Below

Intergenerational mentoring is a central experience of cultural transmission; within publishing networks we can sense a print-based trace of Black feminist sensations of belonging. Magazines of the 1980s, such as Fireweed and Tiger Lily, offer a view into activist spaces where gaining access to print was a means to rewrite the terms of racialization and socioeconomic oppression. This panel will conjure personal memories around institutions such as Sister Vision Press and Fresh Arts as crucibles for cultural production in Toronto.
