St Hilda's Feminist Salon
The St Hilda's Feminist Salon is a space to bridge the gap between feminist theory and practice, and to discuss the complexities of feminism today. Historically, salons have been a force for women’s education and disseminating and debating progressive political ideas. Contemporary feminism is vibrant, challenging and riddled with conflicts. At the twice-termly salons, an invited guest host from feminist academia, art or activism decides on the format. A range of exciting speakers from the cutting edge of feminist theory, art and activism are invited to host. Each salon is different and people who are unable to attend can participate by sending in questions via twitter or facebook. Talks are recorded and can be listened to after the event.
Speakers at previous salons were as follows:
Friday 27 January 2017 – Sisters of Frida
Friday 25 November 2016 – Pragna Patel
Friday 21 October 2016 – Fatemeh Shams in conversation with Zuzanna Olszewska
On 19 April 2017 St Hilda's Feminist Salon will host Lisa Monchalin, Department of Criminology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. The Salon will take place in the Senior Common Room at St Hilda's, 5-7pm. Registration is essential. Please book here.
