Gender Recalled?

Professor Anna Reading

CMCI is in at the beginning of new work on themes of memory, gender, human rights and resilience in the arts. It started with a colloquium at King’s involving some twenty five artists, storytellers, theatre practitioners, knitters, photographers, together with academics from many disciplines from across the UK.

Dr Jelke Boesten of the Institute for International Development opened with a presentation on rethinking gender as resilience through the arts and the day ended with Professor Anna Reading, head of CMCI (pictured), responding to the day by asking participants to write the first line of a story they would tell in order to save their life.

The event was organised by Dr Red Chidgey and Dr Jessica Rapson of CMCI, with social media help from students from the CMCI’s MA in Cultural and Creative Industries: Joshua Hines-Dedman, Cindy Fung and Carolin Huth.
