5th European Feminist Research Conference: Gender and Power in the New Europe
Lund 19-24 August

Power in Action workshop organised together with Stichting Vrouwen en Diversiteit and La Eskalera Karakola

This workshop wants to be a place of reflection on notions of power, through a discussion on concrete feminist actions and practices that will be presented. While theoretically dissection how power works - in its intersection through 'race' and ethnicity, gender or sexual difference, sexuality, class, etc. - we want to expore which concepts and paradigms are useful, in our various European locations, for understanding the workings of power and resistance in the context of late or global capitalism. In our discussions of concrete feminist practices of resistance, we want to look for new impulses for the needed re-articulations of our feminist agendas.
