UOW is hosting a free workshop on ‘Amateur Knowledges’ on Monday 6 July 2015. We have some incredible speakers, including Alastair Blanshard, Carolyn Dinshaw, Leigh Dale, Louise D’Arcens, and Jessica White, and will be covering a huge range of topics in an effort to theorize the (prickly or comfortable, antagonistic or collaborative) relationships between scholarly and amateur knowledges and reading practices:
- early gay muscle films
- fan fiction
- book blogging as vernacular criticism
