Description

Red Chidgey [King's]: Capturing the social lives of protest - the 2017 Women’s March

With digital media offering new affordances for documentation as well as new vulnerabilities, how can we capture the social lives of protest? In her talk, Red Chidgey will introduce the notion of ‘protest memory ecologies’ to think through the interrelationships between protestors, archivists, journalists and digital media.

What kinds of methodologies are needed for tracking memory practices across diverse sites and contexts? How are political events brought into the archive and museum in near real time? Red’s presentation will draw on examples connected to the 2017 Women’s March, which saw global protests erupt on the first day of the US Trump administration.

Biography
Red Chidgey is a lecturer in Gender and Media at King’s College London. Her monograph, Feminist Afterlives, forthcoming with Palgrave Macmillan, explores how political memories are made, circulated and re-activated across temporal bounds, offering a closer understanding of activist memory and its methods.
