Publication/Film: “Motion.Stop.”

entanglements is an important recently launched experimental journal focused on multimodal ethnographic theory and practice. I’m very pleased to have published my experimental film poem, made during a coronavirus pandemic-induced lockdown, here, and recommend the editorial approach to peer-review and publication development.

Abstract: Over the course of the Global Gender and Cultures of Equality project (GlobalGRACE, 2017-2021), researchers around the world exchanged postcards, sharing glimpses of their work.

Stop. was made as the team awaited news about the future of the project. It is a video poem about the connecting threads that form through transnational collaboration.
