Ticket Request – Decolonising Gender, Professor Raewyn Connell, 18 May

The creation of contemporary knowledge about gender is a revolution in thought that has been closely connected with political struggles for gender justice. In the last generation a major problem about this field of knowledge has been recognized, its constitution within a worldwide economy of knowledge shaped by the power and wealth of the global North. This lecture will explore recent attempts to overcome this problem, in feminist re-thinking of imperialism, coloniality and Southern perspectives. The lecture will consider connections of knowledge with feminist politics in the neoliberal era, when new forms of patriarchy have emerged; and will ask if we can have a fully decolonized global feminism that is both politically effective and socially radical.
