Feminisms, anti-racism, social justice: Theories & strategies for our times
Tue 23 May 2017, 11:30 – 16:00 BST
The University of Portsmouth's Women’s and Gender Studies research cluster invites you to a day of critical thinking, collaborative exchange and strategizing.
What kind of feminist theories and politics are needed in these times of intensified right-wing nationalisms, white supremacist, imperialist capitalism and border violence? How do we theorise gender and sexualities within these contexts? How are we connecting anti-racist feminisms to anti-capitalism and disability justice? What kind of alternative visions of the future do we need and how do we work together to materialise these locally and transnationally, inside and outside of the academy?
