The graduate students from nine universities of the Boston-area Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality originally organized an interdisciplinary symposium titled "Technologies of resistance: towards feminist futures" to be held at MIT on April 4, 2020. Due to COVID-19 and campus closures, this event was reimagined as four separate panels to be held remotely.

This panel will focus on the ways that archiving can ensure that feminism and resistance do not get erased from history. Looking to independent press and radical archiving can provide insight into certain aspects of the relation between knowledge production/curation and feminism.

Speakers include:

Mona Tousain, Director at NeuroBoston

Dawn Stahura, Research & Instruction Librarian, Salem State University

Thanh "Nu" Mai, V─ânguard Zine

Ciera Michele Peters, Print Ain't Dead
