Event: Remixing Pop Culture

February 25, 2010

remixing-pop-culture flyerI have been busy organizing this great event coming up in March at California State University, Northridge.  If you live in or are visiting the Los Angeles area you should come out and watch some of the most intriguing remix videos that subvert traditional gender and sexuality norms.  The videos will be curated and presented by Julie Levin Russo, Alexis Lothian and Jonathan McIntosh.  The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the curators. Special thanks to Laura Shapiro who consulted on the event.

Political Remix Video is a genre of transformative guerilla media production whereby creators challenge dominant media messages through re-cutting and re-framing fragments of mainstream media and popular culture. Fan videos or “vids” set remixed footage from TV shows or movies to music. They are often used to subvert the traditional canon or tell an alternative story.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at anita [at] feministfrequency.com

Speakers:
Julie Levin Russo (Stanford) and Alexis Lothian (USC)
Jonathan McIntosh, creator of Buffy vs Edward
Hosted by Anita Sarkeesian (FeministFrequency.com)

  1. I totally enjoyed your work, and aht can I say? I am a research student, women’s studies UCC in Ireland. Passionate about politics and women- I love the way American feminists use technology, and humour and satire to resist…i am hoping that I can use some snips of your vids, just audio, for a community radio programme i am proposing to make, if funding goes through.My MA is called What makes you Not a fmeinist? I believe we all are and need to be more courageous!!
