Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture - “Guerillas in the Knit: Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture - “Guerillas in the Knit: Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 12:00 pm to 12:50 pm

Marybeth Stalp, associate professor, Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology, and Therèsa M. Winge, assistant professor of apparel and textile design, Michigan State University, will present “Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Sending knitted uteri to the US Congress. Angering the US Olympic committee. Vandalizing public spaces. Twisting everyday objects into subversive ones. What do all of these things have in common? Crafters! That’s right, knitting and crocheting have been making a youthful and public comeback since the 1990s, through the work of guerilla knitters, yarn bombers and craftivists. In 2004, we began following this seemingly innocuous phenomenon--handcrafting, and will share in this presentation our research experiences with craftivists, including local and global examples.
