About this Event

Are you interested in the entanglements between empire making and the feminist movement? On March 4th, FemThinkDo will be joined by Uncomfortable Oxford’s co-founders Olivia Durand and Paula Larsson for a discussion of Imperial Feminisms.

This interactive talk will outline some of the differing feminist approaches to imperial history through the complicated stories of four Oxford women and their personal and political ties to the British empire.

Uncomfortable Oxford is an academic-led social enterprise in the city of Oxford, which runs lectures, digital events, and creates ressources highlighting stories of inequality, imperialism, race, class, and gender discrimination, as well as the debates surrounding historical memory. Founded in 2018, the organisation's goal is to raise awareness and generate uncomfortable yet meaningful discussions about these issues in the public sphere, using in particular the built environment to bring up contested histories and their present legacies.

Olivia Durrand is co-founder and director of Uncomfortable Oxford. She is a PhD candidate in the Centre for Global and Imperial History at the University of Oxford. Her research focuses on the development of continental empires in Russia and the United States in the19th c, and the role played by immigration and the creation of imagined communities.

Paula Larsson is also co-founder and director of Uncomfortable Oxford. She is a PhD candidate studying the history of medicine in the Oxford Centre for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology. Her research focuses on the history of vaccinations in Canada, with a particular focus on the intersections of ethnicity and policy in the past century.
