ATR 78- What Activists Can Learn From Pop Culture – 08/09/2007 – Submit an Audio Comment: 206-203-3983

Carmen interviews Stephen Duncombe, author of the new book Dream: Re-imagining Progressive Politics in an Age of Fantasy. From the book’s description:

What do Paris Hilton, Grand Theft Auto, Las Vegas, and a McDonald’s commercial have in common with progressive politics? Not much. And, as Stephen Duncombe brilliantly argues, this is part of what’s wrong with progressive politics. According to Duncombe, culture—and popular fantasy—can help us define and actualize a new political aesthetic: a kind of dreampolitik, created not simply to further existing progressive political agendas but help us imagine new ones.

Stephen Duncombe teaches the history and politics of media and culture at the Gallatin School of New York University. He is the author of Notes from Underground: Zines and the Politics of Alternative Culture, the editor of the Cultural Resistance Reader, and the co-author of The Bobbed-Haired Bandit. He lives in New York City.

ATR 77- Feminism and Women of Color – 08/07/2007 – Submit an Audio Comment: 206-203-3983

Carmen and Latoya discuss why women of color sometimes feel ambivalent about feminism.

Overly opinionated and a prime candidate for MAA (Media Addicts Anonymous), freelance writer and blogger Latoya Peterson lives, learns, loves, and blogs – and then wakes up each morning to do it all over again. She currently contributes to online gaming magazine Cerise, and contributes weekly posts to Racialicious.com. She is also the head of content development at www.entersoundbooth.com, and blogs about hip-hop culture as PlentyProphylactics. Latoya also maintains two blogs of her own housed through her website, www.alteregomaniacs.com. Skilled in interviewing, creative non-fiction, and editorial content, Latoya Peterson spends her time researching trends and obscure connections between topics. Current projects include Messaging in the Media (an analysis of gender messaging through magazines), a project that analyzes the global influence of hip-hop culture, and a short project on trends in manga.
