1PM On the Beauty of Rage

May 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Week 5: A Myriad of Meanings: Feminism(s), Solidarity Movements, and Visions of
Freedom

Discussion Topic/Question: Can transnational feminism create a collective language for mobilization at
the level of the global? Is it possible for a form of “feminist internationalism” to be a voice for
transformative change without a clear position on empire, capitalism, and history? What does
“coauthoring” feminism(s) look like in practice?
