Raechel and Melody talk selfie culture through a critical, cultural studies lens. Specifically, they work through Henry Giroux’s essay “Selfie Culture in the Age of Corporate and State Surveillance.” Before that, M & R check-in about their weekends (R gave a keynote speech, and M’s friend had an unfortunate experience with gender-policing), and after that they share their RWLs!
Also, note, this will be the last episode before our fall break. We’ll be back in December, better than ever!
In this episode, Raechel and Melody chat with Aqdas, is a PhD student at the University of Maryland, studying postcolonial literature and queer of color critique. We specifically talked with them about Third World Feminisms and how anti-imperialism and decolonialization could be taken up in Western feminism.

Before the interview: Raechel and Melody check-in about our Halloween costumes, how much we love fall, and our dosha (check out last week’s Killjoy Review for a link to learning more about yours).*
