- LYNNEE DENISE: “ORGANIC INTELLECTUALISM: DJ SCHOLARSHIP, BLACK FEMINISM AND ERASURE RESISTANCE” // Michigan League, Vandenberg Room (2nd Floor)
DJ Lynnée Denise is a Visiting Artist at California State University’s Pan African Studies Department and its Chicano Studies Department. DJ Lynnée Denise is an artist and scholar who incorporates self-directed project based research into interactive workshops, music events and public lectures that provide the opportunity to develop an intimate relationship with under-explored topics related to the cultural history of marginalized communities. She creates multi- dimensional and multi-sensory experiences that require audiences to apply critical thinking to how the arts can hold viable solutions to social inequality. Her work is inspired by underground cultural movements, the 1980s, migration studies, theories of escape, and electronic music of the African Diaspora. With support from the Jerome Foundation, The Astrae Lesbian Foundation for Justice, Idea Capital, The BiljmAIR artist residency (Netherlands) and The Rauschenberg Artists as Activists Grant, she has been able to resource her performative research on a local, national and global level. She’s the product of the Historically Black Fisk University with a MA from the historically radical San Francisco State University Ethnic Studies Department.
