July 8th h.19:00 VulCa2021 Seminar: Documenting Vulnerability and Care during Covid-19-induced Anti-Asian Racism and Violence in Italy and Canada
Luglio 8 @ 19:00 - 20:30
VULCA 2021 is a project that aims to produce a documentary about Vulnerability and Care during Covid-19-induced Anti-Asian Racism and Violence in Italy and Canada. Valentina Pedone from the University of Florence, along with Gaoheng Zhang from the University of British Columbia as the Canadian partner, is honoured to have received the Canada-Italy Innovation Award 2021. This project aims at producing a documentary on Covid-19 related Sinophobia in Italy and Canada with the goal of combating misinformation and racial stigma. Additionally, the documentary aims to give a voice to victims of Sinophobia, providing them with a space to share how they are coming to terms with trauma, and find ways to heal and show resilience.
The project is being carried out by a team of interdisciplinary scholars, students, and professionals across Canada and Italy. The scholars will hold a series of joint seminars, while professional video makers and artists will hold a series of workshops – all conducted via Zoom. The final product of the documentary will be launched in October during a joint international event.
Please join us for our open seminar on July 8th, at 7 pm (Italian time), with two important contributions on Sinophobia in Italy:
-Toshio Miyake, University of Venice Ca’ Foscari: “Yellowness, Neo-orientalism and Sinophobia in Contemporary Italy”
-Federico Picerni, University of Venice Ca’ Foscari/Heidelberg University: “The Virus, the Other, and Us: China as Menace and Model in Coronial Italy”
