Nyhet! DIY Feminism: From learning to doing

Learn more about intersectionality and critical race theory, decolonial perspectives, and transnational feminism(s).

This in-person three-part study circle is intended to explore the fundamentals of feminist theory and global epistemologies as a means to inspire participants to action the acquired knowledge into concrete personal and collective projects (both local and global).

This study circle introduces the fundamentals of feminist theory and invites the participants to ‘travel’ across the various feminist epistemologies around the world. This will equip the participants with key tenets of feminism(s) and tools for norm-critical thinking. We will discuss together concepts on intersectionality and critical race theory, decolonial perspectives, and transnational feminism(s). We will also encourage participants to collaborate among themselves via a carefully-crafted ‘liberating structures’ methodology to design and potentially launch personal projects or join international collective projects. This could either be through navigating and joining international feminist initiatives and networks, or through crafting own blogs, grant applications, zines, etc. We hope to work together with the participants to develop ‘theories of change’ for the feminist project of their choice.

The study circle methodology will be grounded on liberating structures: easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance relational coordination and trust by fostering lively participation in groups of any size.

The study circle will be conducted in English and you are expected to participate in all three meetings.
