Misogynoir Transformed: A Conversation with Dr. Moya Bailey and Ravynn K. Stringfield
Time & Location
May 02, 4:00 PM
About the event
When Moya Bailey first coined the term misogynoir, she defined it as the ways anti-Black and misogynistic representation shape broader ideas about Black women, particularly in visual culture and digital spaces. She had no idea that the term would go viral, touching a cultural nerve and quickly entering into the lexicon. Misogynoir now has its own Wikipedia page and hashtag, and has been featured on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. In Misogynoir Transformed, Bailey delves into her groundbreaking concept, highlighting Black women’s digital resistance to anti-Black misogyny on YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr, and other platforms.
This conversation is a part of DBLAC's Spring 2022 Reading Series and is supported by the University of Pittsburgh's Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education's Center for Urban Education, and the English department's Composition Program.
