Sensorium Lunchtime Seminar Series (Winter 2022): Dr. Schem Rogerson Bader

The Lunchtime Seminar Series is a weekly event which aims to foster interconnectivity between faculty, graduate students, visiting scholars and artists within the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design. This casual series will host a variety of scholarly presentations by both York and visiting researchers who want to interface with our community and share their work.

The sessions take place weekly on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Lectures will be virtual until it is safe to gather in-person, at which time it will be a hybrid format, with in-person sessions at Sensorium Loft Space (4th Floor CFA, Room M333) and a virtual stream for those who cannot attend in person.

Due to COVID-19, in-person capacity is limited. Please adhere to York’s COVID regulations, including completion of the YU Screen and wearing a mask.

February 16, 2022

Dr. Bader is a Mitacs Postdoctoral Fellow with York University, Archive-Counter Archive, and The ArQuives: Canada’s Queer Archive. With a PhD in Communication and Culture from the Joint Graduate Program at York/Ryerson Universities and an MFA from The School of Visual Arts in New York, Schem embraces interdisciplinarity and intersections of theory and practice. Focusing on queer history, their research examines historical violence and persistence. The recent co-authored publication with Paul Long,  Media Studies: Texts, Production will be launched by Routledge, Fall 2021. Other articles include, “I, Mabel Hampton: Political Power and The Archive” (PUBLIC, 2018) and “The Idiosyncratic Archive: Queerness, Duration and Photography” (Identities: Journal for Politics, Gender, and Culture, 2018). Recently, Schem received the SSHRC Connections Grant (2021) for Indexing Resistance: The Blood & Guts of Queer Protest to coincide with Toronto Pride, June 2022. This conference brings together queer archives, archivists, artists and activists to unpack the complexities of queer resistance.
