Friday, March 8, 2019: COHDS Feminist Future

 

Friday, March 8, from 11am to 1pm

With Cynthia Hammond

In recent years, there has been no lessening of violence and aggression against women, self-identified women, queer, and trans folk, especially people of colour. The media regularly reports misogynist and racist hate crimes against women. In an era when world leaders are openly hateful towards women, the queer community, and people of colour, justice seems distant.

There is, however, a massive, global, feminist movement underway. #metoo, #niunamenos, and the Women's March are some powerful examples of organized feminist work that aims to not only raise awareness, but also to reshape the world along radically egalitarian and inclusive lines.

What can oral history research and oral history research-creation contribute to this reshaping of the world? From September 2019 through to March 2020, the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling will foreground the stories, visions, and actions of women, queer, and trans folk in our programming.

Join Dr. Cynthia Hammond, lead Co-Director of COHDS, on International Women's Day, 8 March 2019, for a brown bag / potluck lunch and discussion.

Let's envision our year of listening on behalf of the feminist future!
