On International Women’s Day, Women and Migration: Responses in Art and History, a book featuring the works of several members of CSSD working groups was published by Open Book Publishers. Our working group members featured in the book are Lorie Novak, Jennifer L. Morgan, Kellie Jones, Marianne Hirsch, Gayatri Gopinath, and Deborah Willis.
The book is comprised of series of essays that chart how women’s profound and turbulent experiences of migration have been articulated in writing, photography, art and film. As a whole, the volume gives an impression of a wide range of migratory events from women’s perspectives, covering the Caribbean Diaspora, refugees and slavery through the various lenses of politics and war, love and family.
The contributors, which include academics and artists, offer both personal and critical points of view on the artistic and historical repositories of these experiences. Selfies, motherhood, violence and Hollywood all feature in this substantial treasure-trove of women’s joy and suffering, disaster and delight, place, memory and identity.
