Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Rockliff, Quinn
Abstract:

here:there is an autoethnographic exploration of how I use social media as a tool for reclamation and self-representation as a survivor of sexual assault. It uses posthuman and feminist theory to unpack the expectations of survivors and the affordances of virtuality to explore new pathways to healing after trauma. This thesis document examines my process as a contemporary feminist artist, and aims to contribute to a growing body of work that moves towards expressionist autoethnography to create critical, transparent, and nuanced representations of the self.
