Feminist Lunch Series: Sabine LeBel

Monday, March 18, 2019 at 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM
Tilley 28 (UNB Campus)
Please mark your calendars for the next talk of our Winter 2019 Feminist Lunch Series in the Faculty of Arts to be given on Monday, March 18th at 12:30pm in Tilley 28 (UNB Campus) by Sabine LeBel (UNB Culture & Media Studies).

The talk is titled: “‘Waste, Rage & Obsolescence: Feminism & the Environmental Politics of E-waste”.

Many of us have experienced frustration, even rage, when a cell phone or laptop stops working or is rendered obsolete because it is not backwards compatible with other machines. This talk considers fury as a shared affective response to those moments when technology fails or is rendered useless because of planned obsolescence. Specifically, it explores what feminist theories of anger might bring to environmental politics of planned obsolescence and e-waste.

Dr. LeBel does research in the area of environmental media studies. She investigates the representation of trash in visual culture, affective responses to planned obsolescence, and media materiality. She also works in the area of mobile media art, especially cellphilms as queer and feminist art practice. Alongside her academic work, Dr. LeBel has an art practice as a curator and a filmmaker, primarily in video and she is co-founder of the Fredericton Feminist Film Collective. Her pieces typically deal with queer themes and environmental issues, often through scifi aesthetics and experimental narratives.

Stay tuned for the next talk in the Winter 2019 Feminist Lunch Series which features remarkable speakers from both UNB and STU.

All are welcome…please bring your lunch!

The Feminist Lunch Series is organized by the UNB Gender & Women’s Studies Program, the UNB/STU University Women’s Centre and the Office of the UNB Dean of Arts. For more information on the series, contact Sophie Lavoie (lavoie@unb.ca).
