Rachael House’s Feminist Disco
Rachael House’s Feminist Disco- Putting the ‘disco’ into ‘discourse’
Anne Robinson will be performing Spin Around Sister Dr. Deborah M. Withers will read from, and discuss the ideas in, her forthcoming book Unpopular music: feminist generations, time, memory and digital culture’. Using Rachael House’s ‘Island’s’ series as a starting point, she suggests feminist musical memories are often stranded from each other, and will explore if digital archives can make a difference to this cultural estrangement.
