Sheldon Scheps Seminar Talk by Vita Peacock (University College London): "Through the Looking Mask: Narratives of Transformation in Anonymous"

Sheldon Scheps Seminar Talk by Vita Peacock (University College London): "Through the Looking Mask: Narratives of Transformation in Anonymous"

Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 4:10pm
Sheldon Scheps Memorial Library, Room 457, Schemerhorn Extension

Respondent: Michael Taussig

What's in a mask? Or rather should we ask - what's in the triad of a mask, it's wearer, and the air that breathes between them? For Anonymous street activists in Britain, the only rule of collective identity is the possession of a plastic Guy Fawkes mask, but it seems this is profound enough, for it is this which offers a portal from one world of relationships to the next. Peacock traces some of these transformations taking place in Britain, situating them in comparative tension with masking practices elsewhere.
