This year’s invited lecturer is Dr. Ayesha Hameed, a Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture at Goldsmiths University of London. Her talk “Of Sea Changes and Other Futurisms” will expand on two of her recent long term research-creation projects: Black Atlantis and Brown Atlantis.
Of Sea Changes and Other Futurisms" explores two long term projects. The first, Black Atlantis, is a speculative exploration of the relationship between the transatlantic slave trade, contemporary illegalised migration, and the watery environment of the ocean below. The second, Brown Atlantis, is a new project which extends the speculative methodology produced for Black Atlantis to look at the ecologies of the Indian Ocean world with histories of indenture and slavery.
