Scholar Talk, Effie Karageorgos, ‘Using the Activist Body During the Vietnam War’

Online [State Library of NSW], 6 February 2024, 11.00 am (AEDT)

During the Vietnam War, Australian activists were aware of the importance of the body as a tool for non-traditional protest beyond the rally or march. Although corporeal responses by artists were key to the success of the anti-war movement, this Scholar Talk will focus on the impact of quieter forms of protest, such as the wearing of badges or armbands, and the strategic use of silence or absence through vigils, strikes or walk-outs, to communicate the anti-war message.
