Come see our 2015 Distinguished Feminist Lecturer, Manisha Desai of the University of Connecticut, on Sunday August 23rd from 3:15-4:45pm at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago, IL. In this talk she will first conceptualize a gendered geography of struggles, which she defines as a spatial, epistemic, and praxis arrangement of social movements in general and of global justice movements in particular. This gendered geography, she argues, renders women and feminist issues visible in certain spaces of movements and marginalized in others. Moreover, there is a gendered division of labor in which the epistemic and activist work of gender justice is outsourced to women's movements instead of being embedded and integral to global justice. This gendered geography is a consequence of the uneven terrain of global justice movements as well as the inability of radical politics to meaningfully respond to issues of autonomy, difference, and solidarities. Please register for the Summer Meeting to attend! Pre-Registration is open until August 10th and can be accessed from the Member's Page after logging in. On-site registration will be available.
