Dr. Niq Johnson will present: “Race, Gender, and Pop Culture Feminism”

9:30 AM coffee and networking
10:00 AM lecture

Over the past decade, feminist thought has entered the mainstream like never before, meshing together pop culture and politics. With social media “influencers” and public intellectuals reshaping the terms of debate on Feminism’s most important themes, we must now address the conflict over who is being served by its popularization and to what ends. In this lecture, Dr. Johnson will explore common misconceptions of Intersectionality; White Feminism(TM) and the politics of erasure; and the queerantagonism and transphobia of “TERF” politics as they all collide in today’s top media moments.

Dr. Niq D. Johnson studied Communication & Rhetoric at the University of Pittsburgh, where they focused on issues of gender and sexuality in media, critical theory, and literature. They are currently serving as Managing Editor for the digital magazine, EFNIKS, a platform dedicated to uplifting queer and trans people of color.
