Public Lecture. Snap: Feminist Moments, Feminist Movements

Södra Teatern, Stora Scenen May 11, at 19.30

"Snap: the moment she cannot take it anymore. This lecture reflects on snap as a moment with a feminist history. Moments become movements; moments can accumulate, becoming worn threads of connection. Snapping, that moment when the pressure has built up and tipped over, can be the basis of a feminist revolt, a revolt against what we are asked to put up with. The lecture considers feminist movements as snappy movements, suggesting that snap requires a communication system, a way of bringing the violence that is already here to the surface."

The lecture will be followed by a conversation between Sara Ahmed, Anna Adeniji (TRYCK) and Ulrika Dahl (Uppsala University). Afterwards there will be a book launch and signing of Sara Ahmed’s new book in Swedish, Att leva feministiskt at Södran bar. 

This event is for all of us committed to anti-racist feminist analysis and action and is a collaboration between TRYCK, Centre for gender research and Centre for Multidisciplinary Research on Racism at Uppsala University and Tankekraft Förlag.
