This talk will be followed by a Q and A period.\n\nDr. Moya Ba iley is Associate Professor of Communications at Northwestern University. She is the digital alchemist for the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network and an MLK Visiting Scholar at MIT.\n\n'When Moya Bailey first coined the term misogynoir\, she defined it as the ways anti-Black and misogynistic repre sentation shape broader ideas about Black women\, particularly in visual c ulture and digital spaces. She had no idea that the term would go viral\, touching a cultural nerve and quickly entering into the lexicon. Misogynoi r now has its own Wikipedia page and hashtag\, and has been featured on Co medy Central’s The Daily Show and CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. In Misogynoir Tr ansformed\, Bailey delves into her groundbreaking concept\, highlighting B lack women’s digital resistance to anti-Black misogyny on YouTube\, Facebo ok\, Tumblr\, and other platforms.\n\nAt a time when Black women are depic ted as more ugly\, deficient\, hypersexual\, and unhealthy than their non- Black counterparts\, Bailey explores how Black women have bravely used soc ial-media platforms to confront misogynoir in a number of courageous—and\, most importantly\, effective—ways. Focusing on queer and trans Black wome n\, she shows us the importance of carving out digital spaces\, where comm unities are built around queer Black webshows and hashtags like #GirlsLike Us.\n\nBailey shows how Black women actively reimagine the world by engagi ng in powerful forms of digital resistance at a time when anti-Black misog yny is thriving on social media. A groundbreaking work\, Misogynoir Transf ormed highlights Black women’s remarkable efforts to disrupt mainstream na rratives\, subvert negative stereotypes\, and reclaim their lives.'
