Hear feminist writer, thinker and activist Silvia Federici talk about housework as a critical terrain in the class struggle against capitalism, as well as social and institutional violence against women, including the new witch-hunts. This surge of violence has occurred as an expansion of capitalist accumulation through enclosure and land dispossession from women, indigenous and slave communities. Federici will examine the root causes of these developments and will outline the consequences for the women affected and their communities, as discussed in the new book "Witches, Witch-Hunting, and Women", which offers powerful tools for understanding collective resistance and transformative social relations in the past and today.

This talk will be chaired by Lynne Pettinger from Three Ecologies Research Group.

In collaboration with the Centre for Critical Theory at the University of Nottingham, and the Three Ecologies Research Group. With thanks to the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice at the University of Nottingham.



Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
