Feminist in Residence 2020-2021
We are pleased to welcome Hankyeol Song as the inaugural fellow in our new Feminist in Residence program.
Hankyeol Song is an artist-filmmaker, writer, scholar, and community organizer. Her research interests include film/media, postcolonialism, feminism, and Queer Theory. Song is the co-founder of the Ana Cha collective (anacha.squarespace.com), a coalition of scholars, artists, and filmmakers who interrogate the cultural world through a critical feminist lens. She was politically activated through campus anti-rape activism and is currently active as a member of the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (caarpr.org). Hanky is involved with the campaign to free incarcerated CPD torture survivors (CFIST) and to stop police crimes (SPC/CPAC).
Song joins our community with a wealth of ideas for working with student activists and building ties between the Women’s Center and spaces of “feminist collectivity and liberation politics” across Chicago. Song also will be engaging the communities through film and capturing the experience in documentary form.
