Self-described Marxist to deliver keynote at campus event
Barnard College professors in New York City will examine “decolonized feminist futures,” “Black Marxism,” and the “centrality of feminist organization to mass protest” against the Trump administration during an event on Saturday.
The conference, titled “Global Radicalism: Solidarity, Internationalism, and Feminist Futures,” aims to “recover the histories and possible futures of anti-imperialist struggle.” Participants “will unearth hidden legacies of internationalist movements and reveal the potentials of decolonized feminist futures.”
The event is sponsored by the Racial Capitalism Working Group (Center for the Study of Social Difference, Columbia University), Barnard’s New Directions in American Studies, and The People’s Forum, a group that describes itself as “movement incubator for working class and marginalized communities.”
Included in the event program is a panel entitled “Black Left Feminist Internationalism.” Attendees of this session will examine “the radical anti-racist, anti-colonial, socialist internationalist, and feminist visions of social change” and “consider how Black Marxist feminists like Louise Thompson Patterson, Claudia Jones, Lorraine Hansberry, and others confronted racism, patriarchy, Capitalism, and imperialism in their own times.”
