A podcast by Sabrina Etherington and Amelia Donkor
The F Less Travelled… Tracing Feminist Pathways is a new podcast birthed on the Gender, Media and Culture MA by two part-time students, Amelia Donkor and Sabrina Etherington. It’s designed to be a space for storytelling and feminist journeys, where guests are invited to share the three books, two songs, and one object that have been their feminist friends along the road. In the first season, Amelia and Sabrina speak to artists, academics, and activists to unfurl, uncover, and share the feminisms they find and make every day; to build a collective of feminist discovery.
If you’re interested in bridging the gap between feminist academia and the feminist paths that we live and explore every day, then The F Less Travelled… is the new feminist companion for you!
We wanted to create a learning tool that reached beyond the walls of the university, one that would enrich our own paths and found that conversations and storytelling were vital in facilitating this environment. The F Less Travelled… is a safe space, one that encapsulates the honest, raw stories of all our differing feminist journeys. This space is one of care, curiosity and ceaseless (un)learning. We want to reimagine what a feminist archive looks like, who writes it and who can access it and by listening to the knowledge and journeys of our many wonderful guests we hope that we can all trace a new kind of pathway together – one that we can write ourselves. We are all contributors and through this podcast, we want to encourage more feminist conversations and enrich our shared archive. To us, true feminism is about the collective, the sharing and the intimate listening to each other’s stories because that is where our power to make change arises.
We’ve had some fantastic guests contribute to the ever-evolving feminist archive, including Dr Grace M Cho, Dr Awino Okech, Chipo Chung and Goldsmiths’ very own Dr Louise Chambers to name a few. We’ve learned so much on this journey and want to continue to expand the feminist archive with you!
So, get in contact with us @f_travelled on Twitter, and share your three, two, one. Tell us what we should read, music to dance to and objects that feed your fire. Let’s reimagine the Canon together! #ThisIsMyCanon.
And like all true feminist endeavours, it took a collective to make this journey possible. We’re thankful to Methods Labs along with The Centre for Urban and Community Research and our partner The Centre for Feminist Research for their support.
With feminist love,
Amelia and Sabrina x
