Author Anne Elizabeth Moore joins Radio Free Ruin to talk about her work, third world garment labor, why the manufacturing of technology gets more attention than garment work, the state of women in the comics industry, cats, and much more.
During Breaking News, host Paul M. Davis delves into Mike Daiseys’ one-man show The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, the nuances of the tech industry’s suicide-inducing Chinese factories and why all tech makers are complicit, and a cigar-shaped UFO flap over the South.
Anne Elizabeth Moore is a Fulbright scholar, Truthout columnist, and author of Cambodian Grrrl: Self-Publishing in Phnom Penh (Cantankerous Titles, 2011), Unmarketable: Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing, and the Erosion of Integrity (The New Press, 2007) and Hey Kidz, Buy This Book: A Radical Primer on Corporate and Governmental Propaganda and Artistic Activism for Short People (Soft Skull, 2004). Co-editor and publisher of now-defunct Punk Planet, founding editor of the Best American Comics series from Houghton Mifflin, Moore teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and works with young women in Cambodia on independent media projects. Moore exhibits her work frequently as conceptual art, has been the subject of two documentary films, and her work appeared on the radio program Snap Judgment and in the Progressive, Bitch, and on Truthout. She has written forThe Onion, Feministing, The Stranger, In These Times, The Boston Phoenix, and Tin House. She has twice been noted in the Best American Non-Required Reading series. Her work with young women in Southeast Asia has been featured in Time Out Chicago, Make/Shift, Today’s Chicago Woman, and Printmagazines, and on GritTV and NPR’s Worldview. She recently mounted a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Her latest book, Cambodian Grrrl, is the first in a series of four volumes on independent culture, globalization, and women’s rights in Southeast Asia.
