Conceived for the Queer Hemispheres’ Radical Performance Series, Mapping Dissent focused on marking the city of Santa Barbara with queer affective responses to Donald Trump’s presidential election and its aftermath.


The project included a collection of testimonials from city residents compiled by a team of University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) students, faculty, and administrative staff, which were placed on campus in the form of signs during a collective silent walk.



This project was part of Historias propias (Our Stories)

Produced by the Chicano Studies Institute, New Sexualities Research Focus Group, Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, Resource Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, Multicultural Center, Global Environmental Justice Project (Dr. David Pellow), Hull Chair of Feminist Studies (Dr. Eileen Boris), Latin American & Iberian Studies Program, LGBTQ Studies minor, and the Art, Film and Media Studies, English, Asian American Studies, the History of Art and Architecture, & Theater and Dance departments.
