The Women's Studies Program Third Fall Lecture Series Presentation

Event Description:
The Women's Studies Program Third Fall Lecture Series presents "Joan Miller's Choreographies of Black Study at Lehman College" by Charmian Wells, Ph.D., Adjunct Assistant Professor, Dept. of Music, Multimedia, Theatre & Dance. This talk will examine Joan Miller's signature solos, Pass Fe White (1970) and Homestretch  (1972), in the context of her work establishing the dance program at Lehman College (1970) and within the 1960/70s' student movements more broadly.  The solos "read" the desire to embody idealized, feminine whiteness in a critique of structures for accessing national belonging: marriage, celebrity, and education.  Performing her choreography as a form of black study (Moten and Harney 2013), Miller's work affirmed the capacity to desire differently, provoking considerations of other terms for be(long)ing in the world.
