We’re a little behind, but here’s the recording of our January 27th event with Adam Perry in our ongoing series in honour of Roxana Ng, on “Image Theatre: Embodied Approaches to Immigrant Labour”.
In this presentation Adam Perry discusses the use of an embodied approach to qualitative research with migrant farm workers. He explores how he engaged with the practice of “Image Theatre” to facilitate counter-discursive stories shaped by workers’ invitation to play in the space between aesthetic representation and social reality. Expect to move around a bit during this presentation.
This event was part of a year-long series of lunch time events in honour of CWSE Head Roxana Ng, who passed away in January 2013. Roxana was a prolific and dedicated feminist whose work focused on globalization, migration, and labour relations; immigrant women and Canadian institutions; Institutional Ethnography; anti-racism; Qi Gong and alternative holistic health and healing; embodied learning; and critical feminist pedagogy.
We have only one more event in this series, taking place April 3rd at the CWSE. Come check it out.
