Event description: 

Join CLAIS for “Rags. Petrol. Matches”, an International Women’s Day lecture with our visiting professor, Amneris Chaparro Martinez, researcher on feminist political theory and epistemology at the Center for Research and Gender Studies (CIEG) at UNAM in Mexico City. This event will be hybrid, with a catered lunch in Luce 202 and a virtual option streamed via Zoom.
This event will explore the different means women in Latin America use in both public and virtual spaces to convey their demands (hashtags, humour, monument interventions, performance, destruction, Molotov bombs, hammers, rags, petrol, and matches). It will also look at some normative questions that arise from these scenarios; in particular, questions on the implications that the use of violence in the denunciation of violence against women may entail for the future of feminist mobilizing and the pursue of justice.
