Whisper Networks: On the Feminist Function of Rumor
Date: Thursday, November 7, 2019
Time: 5:00 – 7:00 pm
Venue: Oak Lounge, Tresidder Union (2nd Floor)
Whisper networks, informal information channels between those who lack institutional power, have long served a vital function for women. But the revelations of sexual violence around #MeToo made this not-quite-private communication public. Some disparaged the results as “gossip,” though often the accusations against power figures such as Harvey Weinstein had been widely known and tolerated.
In this event, journalists Moira Donegan and Evette Dionne join Clayman Institute Director Adrian Daub to discuss the ways #MeToo and technological change have upended traditional hierarchies of information. What is at stake in this transition from private rumor to public reckoning?
