Genealogies of Feminisms
A joint initiative of bridging feminisms, Fem Talks and Syg.ma
A series of meetings on the history of the institutionalization of gender studies and feminism in the post-Soviet space. We will discuss our guests' experience of participation in the process of institutionalization of gender studies and organizations, professional transnational relations and friendships formed in the process, the intersections between gender studies and feminism and the state of (utopian) ideas then and now.
May 22 - July 31 on Fridays - usually at 18.00, but sometimes at other times - follow the announcements.
Meetings will last 1.5-2 hours and will be held on the zoom platform. First, the guest will have a conversation with the moderator, and then it will be possible to ask questions "from the audience". The broadcast will also be available on the youtube channel Syg.ma.
