About Project

Wandering Scholars is an interdisciplinary symposium about contemporary culture, art, media and scholarship that focuses on acts of “walking” and “wandering” as strategies of thought and expression. It will consider the importance of processes of walking, elements of distraction, chaos, non-productivity, non-linearity and “failure”, as well as the fascination of a peripatetic way of disseminating knowledge. Whether we are making solitary journeys or moving in groups, we are constantly drifting and perceiving with five senses, or using technological devices, while sensing the rhythms and languages constituted by spaces, times and people. The symposium invites artists, scholars and audiences to develop participatory modes of education as acts of walking.

About Event
Sexuality and Dimsum

Date: 29 May 2014, 1pm-5pm
RSVP: http://goo.gl/JUYAtL

Journeys into sex art and knowledge will be shown and discussed at a “Long Table”**.

At 1pm the event will open with an appetizer and sparkling beverage. Next we will witness a performance art piece by Tobaron Waxman entitled The 71st Face . It is an cappella endurance performance for the transsexual voice that will
resonate with the cattle depot’s architecture. More specifically he will sing songs in Yiddish, Hebrew and Aramaic about death and transformation.

At 2:30 pm there will be an intermission around the table with informal table chat and Dimsum.

At 3:15 pm the floor goes to filmmaker Fan Popo who will present a talk and movie segments entitled Queer Mobility and Home Sickness. As he describes:” My ’identity trouble’  is not merely limited to sexuality; it is also about me as a filmmaker, a curator, an activist, a writer (sometimes).­ It is cool to engage in a variety of tasks within multiple fields, but this can be exhausting as well; traveling around brings me as much excitement as homesickness.

The program will conclude at 5pm with a dialogue by Nguyen Hoang Tang and Dredge Kang over a refreshing dessert.

** The Long Table format, invented by performer/professor Lois Weaver, is a means of generating open discussion about a specified topic, using a stylized environment and participation protocol to turn ordinary conversation into a performance. ‘The Long Table’ experiments with participation and public engagement by re-appropriating a dinner table atmosphere as a public forum and encouraging informal conversation on serious topics.

Dredge Kang

My dissertation research focuses on gender pluralism and social status among gay men and male to female transgender persons (kathoey or sao praphet sawng) in Bangkok, Thailand. I am interested in conceptualizations of gender/sexuality categories, the social legitimacy accorded to these categories, the social and moral status of the individuals inhabiting them, and the relationship of social status to material and embodied outcomes. I am concurrently pursuing an MPH in global epidemiology with a focus on HIV.
