The lecture series aims at attending to the complex and ambivalent processes that give rise to intersectionally gendered in_visibilities. Being/becoming visible is a prerequisite of being politically and socially intelligible, yet visibility does not necessarily translate into political power. And what has been gained in legal rights and social acceptance can never be taken for granted.
Starting point is “the visible” as a complex of problems, against the backdrop of enormous globalized cultural and social changes triggered by the economisation of the social sphere, (forced) migration, religious pluralism, new media technologies and the narrations they produce. What is visible is not a given, but the historically specific and contingent result of processes of visibilisation – and, conversely, of invisibilisation, on the shifting terrain of the public and the private spheres. The lectures will cover some of the social practices, cultural meanings and political power structures in which these processes are embedded, and the diverse array of visuals that are produced. They will analyse some of the ways in which in_visibilities create ambivalent and intersecting gendered relations of power and agency, subjugation and resistance; and they will also try to identify transformative strategies of agency and empowerment.
