Antena is a language justice and language experimentation collaborative founded in 2010 by Jen Hofer and John Pluecker, both of whom are writers, artists, literary translators, bookmakers and activist interpreters. From January 18 – May 10, 2014, Antena will be in residence at Blaffer, where they will inhabit various spaces of the museum to explore how critical views on language can help us to reimagine and rearticulate the worlds we live in. url: http://www.blafferartmuseum.org/antena-at-blaffer-antena-en-blaffer/
The telenovela is one of the most popular products of Latin America. It is a format that exploits the world market through the articulation and preservation of cultural difference, and at the same time serves as a powerful tool of self-representation and the re-signification of the continent’s colonial legacy. soy mi madre (2008) by Phil Collins and Crying for the March of Humanity (2012) by Christian Jankowski both employ the format of the telenovela for critical purposes that draw on the aesthetics of the melodrama to talk about issues of immigration, class and race, and the relationship between arts, media and politics.
The Voter Registration Drives will occur on Mar. 4th, 2014 from 10am-2pm at the UC Satellite and on Mar. 5th, 2014 from 10am-2pm at Butler Plaza. Please encourage anyone you may know, who would like to volunteer, and help us with registering as many students as possible. Encourage those that would like to help that if they are deputized, they are even more needed, and should not feel obligated to stay the whole 4 hr. shift either or both days but, can com e for an hour or two if possible. However long anyone would like to volunteer (deputized or not), please inform them that we need their support and volunteerism efforts on the day these drives are taken place. They can contact Bria Riley at: firstname.lastname@example.org or Ben Hanna at: email@example.com so that we can add them to the volunteer list and confirm with them any details they may need from us. If they are not deputized, still encourage them to join us, they can assist in other ways. Thanks again from SGA!
