“Remixing Pop Culture” Event Videos – Feminist Frequency

“Remixing Pop Culture” Event Videos

August 11, 2010

I organized “Remixing Popular Culture: Subverting Gender and Sexuality with Remix Video” at California State University, Northridge in March 2010 to explore how remix video can subvert gender and sexuality. I was joined by Jonathan McIntosh, Alexis Lothian, and Julie Levin Russo to talk about Political Remix Video and Vidding.

Here is the two part video of the event.  Part one discusses Vidding with Russo and Lothian presenting a brief history and a series of vids back to back.  Part two discusses Political Remix Video with McIntosh demonstrating how each video subverts the original source material.

What do representations of gender and race in major motion pictures, hit television series and video games have to do with the current social and political climate?

Our newest videos analyze these connections by focusing on today’s most pressing social issues.

Like all of Feminist Frequency’s work, our new show is completely free to the public.

You can help us make sure it stays that way.

Feminist Frequency analyzes the connections between popular culture, the current political climate, and societal issues such as gender, race, and sexuality.

You can help us speak out against the normalization of sexual assault and harassment, racism and bigotry, and advocate for more inclusive media. All of our work is completely free and available to anyone with an internet connect.

We rely on contributions from people like you to keep it that way.
