Feminist Dissent

An IATL and Feminist Dissent Web Seminar

Feminist Dissent: Theory, Practice and Resistance

Seminar 1: Racism, feminism and the politics of fundamentalism in Britain

Wednesday, December 5, 2018
3-5 pm Council Chambers, Senate House

Seminar Tutor: Pragna Patel, Southall Black Sisters

Pragna Patel is a founding member of the Southall Black Sisters (SBS), a non-profit service and campaigning organisation for black and ethnic minority women, with a focus on domestic violence, immigration, religious fundamentalism and racism. In 2011, The Guardian named her among the Top 100 Women: Activists and Campaigners.

This is the first of two interdisciplinary pilot seminars that draws its inspiration from the Warwick-based online peer-reviewed journal called Feminist Dissent. The module’s focus is to develop understanding of a worldwide proliferation of fundamentalist religious movements and the global rise of conservative and racist populist movements taking place in the context of the ongoing crises of capitalism and resources. The first of these seminars will focus on the politics of feminism, racism and religious fundamentalism in Britain.
The seminar is open to all University of Warwick students. Registered students will receive a certificate of participation. Places are limited.

The seminar will take place at Warwick, but will be simultaneously attended by a live global audience of students, academics, activists and artists, who will send in their questions and comments for discussion.
Suggested readings will be uploaded shortly.
