What constitutes democratic discourse? How can it be achieved, and how is it repressed? These questions have animated a number of contemporary art projects over the last decade that explore the persistence of the embodied voice as a primary mode of democratic enunciation, and work to reveal the fraught condition of today's citizen-subjects.

Jennifer A. González is professor in the History of Art and Visual Culture at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She also teaches at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, New York. She has written for numerous periodicals including Aztlán, Frieze, Bomb, Camera Obscura, and Art Journal. Her essays about digital bodies and critical race studies have appeared in anthologies such as The Cyborg Handbook, Race in Cyberspace, Visible Worlds and Only Skin Deep: Changing Visions of the American Self. Her first book Subject to Display: Reframing Race in Contemporary Installation Art (MIT Press, 2008) was a finalist for the Charles Rufus Morey Book Award. Her second book, Pepón Osorio was published by University of Minnesota Press (2013).

This lecture is organized by the Graduate Student Art History Association.
