Keynote: Silvia Federici

At Nottingham Contemporary


Hear feminist writer, thinker and activist Silvia Federici talk about housework as a critical terrain in the class struggle against capitalism, as well as social and institutional violence against women, including the new witch-hunts. This surge of violence has occurred as an expansion of capitalist accumulation through enclosure and land dispossession from women, indigenous and slave communities. Federici will examine the root causes of these developments and will outline the consequences for the women affected and their communities, as discussed in the new book "Witches, Witch-Hunting, and Women", which offers powerful tools for understanding collective resistance and transformative social relations in the past and today. This talk will be chaired by Lynne Pettinger from Three Ecologies Research Group.
