Visualising Transnational Solidarities

Resistance print cultures, in the form of magazines, posters, pamphlets and other
ephemera played a crucial role in coordinating, maintaining, and organizing
anticolonial movements and solidarities in the global south. While a shift to the digital
might suggest imminent obsolescence to associated socialities, practices and
technologies, activists, artists, and historians have demonstrated a renewed
investment in the revival of these media formats, aesthetics and imaginaries that
developed transnationally across political groups during the decolonisation era.
The workshop aims to bring together ECR researchers to explore past and present
histories of solidarity visual-material and print cultures with the aim of building a
collaborative space and community to explore anti-colonial visual solidarity work.
