Vastarinnan feminisointia ja dekoloniaalista solidaarisuutta: Naisten slummiaktivismi Etelä-Aasiassa

Valokuvan on ottanut Saara Savusalo

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).
