Women and Gender Studies Presents:
Multimedia Presentation by Dr. M. Francyne Huckaby
Associate Professor, College of Education
Winner, 2016-2017 Claudia V. Camp Faculty Research and Creative Activity Award
A Black Feminist, the Living Camera, Participatory Democracy, and Their Weaving
Based on the digitally born ethnographic film project, Public Education Project: Participatory Democracy in Times of Privatization, this multimedia presentation explores cyborg weaving as a renewed possibility for participatory democracy. Huckaby and her camera together become the living camera, the participatory camera, the cine-eye-ear — cyborg. This feminist scholarship born of necessity witnesses, documents, analyzes, and (re)presents the counterstories and activism of marginalized and displaced communities in the struggle to claim education at a time when receiving it is threatened.
