Saturday 25th of February in Kupoli, Mannerheimintie 5 B 7th floor
Doors open 4PM, lecture starts 4:15 PM
Postdoctoral researcher Tiina Seppälä, University of Lapland
The lecture deals with women's slum activism against development-induced displacement and slum evictions in South Asia, focusing especially on feminization of resistance and decolonial solidarity in this context. The lecture also discusses how women's slum activism can be analyzed and interpreted in the framework of anarchism, what we can learn from the women of the Global South, and how the idea and practice of decolonial feminist solidarity can be utilized in different struggles for social justice. The lecture is based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted in three countries in South Asia: Nepal, India and Bangladesh (2011–2015).
Kupoli is inaccessible space. There is one small step at the downstairs front door, and an elevator that runs between from floor 1 to 6. Kupoli is on the 7th floor after a staircase.
There are two searate, rather spacey but not wheelchair-standardized, unisex toilets. There are stairs between Kupoli and WC.
