Queer Cultural Center’s Queer Conversations on Culture and the Arts
and UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design present:

Emerging Scholars Program
On Dispossession

Moderated by Jordan Reznick
Thursday, May 9, 2019
7 -9pm
San Francisco LGBT Community Center
1800 Market @ Octavia Street

The event features four provocative presentations by graduate students from UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design.

On Dispossession explores the dynamics of power relations that deprive persons of place, livelihood and sense of selfhood.

The presentations look at the idea of the gendered self as framed in digital space to an analysis of the structures of this virtual space as a system of surveillance and control in the service of late capitalism; then looks at examples in the built environment and urban development as particular manifestations of these power dynamics at play in local communities that materialize as Gentrification and Art Washing.

Organized by Greig Crysler and Rudy Lemcke

This panel is part of a series of public presentations held in conjunction with the Precarious Lives exhibition opening at SOMArts Cultural Center in June 2019 and curated by Creative Labor for the National Queer Arts Festival.
