Event description

Description

This talk by renowned thinker Professor Lynne Segal forms the culmination of a day-long celebration of international women's art and activism, 'Donna / Femme / Frau / Mujer', organised by staff at the School of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (SMLLC) at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Prof. Segal will address concerns raised by her important recent book Radical Happiness, which explores the potential of togetherness in an individualistic age, and take questions from the audience.

The event will be chaired by Dr Emily Jeremiah of the SMLLC, and will be followed by a wine reception.

If you would also like to join us for the daytime workshops, please register separately here.

Please email Lauren Faro with any queries (Lauren.Faro@rhul.ac.uk).
