Unheard Voices

Visiting Irish scholar and producer Cahal McLaughlin will screen his short film featuring the testimonials of those who endured trauma during what is known as the "Troubles," a violent period in Northern Ireland that claimed nearly 3,600 lives between 1969-2000. Made in collaboration with Jolene Mairs, the documentary was produced by the Center for Media Research (University of Ulster) in conjunction with WAVE Trauma Centre. Dr. McLaughlin will also discuss oral history and his ongoing research projects including Prisons Memory Archives, which includes 175 interviews about prisons in Northern Ireland:

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
