Techne: Queer Meditations on Writing the Self


Join us for Jonathan Alexander’s workshop:


His talk should be particularly interesting to those who teach or research queer, digital, multimodal, or auto-ethnographic representation. Light refreshments provided.

Dr. Jonathan Alexander (Editor of College, Composition, and Communication and Chancellor’s Professor of English, Education, and Gender & Sexuality Studies, School of Humanities, University of California, Irvine). His visit is possible thanks to the support of the Sweetland Center for Writing.

Dr. Alexander will be presenting an embodied performance of portions of his digital text: Techne: Queer Meditations on Writing the Self, is a book-length multimodal exploration of technologies, subjectivities, and affects. Blending phenomenology and auto-ethnography with queer theories, we delve into the multiple layerings of text, image, and technology as sites from which to perform/write/read ourselves in the digital age.
