Tuesday, October 16, 5:00PM in H470

From the Women’s Marches around the world, gun violence,  # Me Too movement, climate change, family segregation to a shifting media landscape that has enabled contradictory dynamics, we are witnessing how feminism and queer movements are no more restricted to academic space and have taken new shapes and new meanings in the public sphere !
On October 16, 2018 (Venue: H 470 , Time: 5. 00 P.M) we are having a transnational interactive discussion on  "Is Your Feminism Angry Enough: Anger as a Feminist Methodology for Cultural Studies!" with the Australian feminist scholar Carole Ferrier (University of Queensland, Brisbane). In this session with Prof. Ferrier, we seek to address these dynamics through a multifaceted and interdisciplinary discussion on  
1) How does changing media create new risks for feminist discourse or feminist individuals?
2) Is anger still a relevant Feminist Methodology and how do race, masculinity, femininity, class, religion and nation influence the depiction and interpretation of anger as a methodology?
3)How has feminism either challenged or contributed to the concept of publicness itself?
4)How do nonfeminist forces shape what circulates in the name of feminism, and how can feminists combat it?
5)To what extent are new languages necessary to shifting public discourses about feminism? 
I would love to take this opportunity to invite all of you to this discussion and would request you to share the poster with your students and please encourage them to join us. This event is free and open to all.
