Transnational Feminist and Queer Solidarities: Epistemes, Affects, PracticesThursday, April 20, 2023 10:00 am – 5:00 pm CEST/GMT+2
Aquarium, Südblock, Kreuzberg
SPACE IS LIMITED, ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED
What does it mean to be in solidarity with another’s struggle? How do we amplify others’ voices without falling into the trap of speaking for them? How is solidarity practiced, performed, and expressed, and how has it been imagined in the popular arts and literatures of social movements, uprisings, and revolutions?
This one-day workshop brings together scholars and activists of diverse locations and disciplinary backgrounds to discuss solidarity from feminist and queer perspectives, address its limits and possibilities, and think through its concrete materializations. We organize our conversations along three thematic foci – epistemes, affects, and practices – to explore the meanings and politics of transnational solidarity as they manifest across different geographies and contexts of struggle.
We intend for this to be the beginning of a conversation that will spur more interest in this theme, while complicating given assumptions and propelling new directions.
This workshop is part of the Transnational Feminism, Solidarity, and Social Justice project funded by OSUN.
With Sara Abbas, B Camminga, Firoozeh Farvardin, Razan Ghazzawi, Omar Kasmani, Aysuda Kölemen, Agata Lisiak, Sara Mourad, Srila Roy, and Hanan Toukan.
Space is limited, interested participants should register via this form.
