Announcing the release of Women and Migration: Responses in Art and History, edited by Deborah Willis, Ellyn Toscano and Kalia Brooks Nelson. The publication features a number of NYU faculty, including Art & Public Policy's Karen Finley, Kathy Engel, Grace Aneiza Ali and Affiliated Faculty and co-editor Ellyn Toscano.
"The essays in this book chart how women’s profound and turbulent experiences of migration have been articulated in writing, photography, art and film. As a whole, the volume gives an impression of a wide range of migratory events from women’s perspectives, covering the Caribbean Diaspora, refugees and the contributors, which include academics and artists, offer both personal and critical points of view on the artistic and historical repositories of these experiences. Selfies, motherhood, slavery through the various lenses of politics and war, love and family, violence and Hollywood all feature in this substantial treasure-trove of women’s joy and suffering, disaster and delight, place, memory and identity."
