Federica Giardini (Rome): Care, Reproduction and the Environmental Humanities

Sessions in Feminist Theory, Winter Term 2022/23

The talk gives an account of both a research path and teaching experience at the university. Beginning with the two pivotal concepts of reproduction and care, which mark different spaces and times of feminist elaboration – reproduction as a feminist critique of the Marxist framework of the 1970s; care as an ethical-political proposal of U.S. provenance between the 1980s and 1990s – the general concept of eco-trans-feminism will be articulated and the necessary spillovers on the relationships between disciplines and knowledges will also be examined.
