This event occurred on: Patia Borja is one of the most significant and accomplished figures in the history of online memes working today. Together with Laina Berry (@mistervacation) and River Moon (@saint.deepthroat0, she runs Patia's Fantasy World, a meme page which is known for posting "tongue-in-cheek memes, razor-sharp observations about Black culture and identity, [with] an activist agenda that counters the scores of superficial platitudes on social media." (The Cut) She is also one of the forces behind the page's "comprehensive database of anti-racism resources," spanning "a range of topics including bail funds to donate to, resources for the Black trans community, literature on radical politics and prompts for addressing racism in the workplace." (Hypebae) She will be in conversation with Sacha Medjo, the mastermind behind Bard College Memes. The two will visit the lab to discuss their work and engage in a Q&A with attendants.
