What: Decolonizing the Spatial Turn: Feminist of Color Geographies working group
  • Women of color feminists are rarely read for their insights into space and spatiality. This working group will explore: How do women and queer of color scholar-activists conceive of key spatial concepts such as land, territory, the state, the urban, the body, and the intimate? How do they make sense of the spatialities of white supremacy, racial capitalism, settler colonialism, and heteropatriarchy? In what way do their geographical imaginations open up new political orders and world-views? We will engage Black, Indigenous, and transnational feminist scholars as well as activist groups such as the Audre Lorde Project and Black Lives Matter. You can read our full proposal here.
When: Thurs. September 17 at 6 pm
Where: 691 Barrows
Contact: Please contact Divya Sundar (divyasundar@berkeley.edu) or Brittany Meche (brittany.meche@berkeley.edu) if you have questions!
