Ecofeminisms: critical perspectives on theory and activism

Thursday, November 3rd, 2022, 16:0018:00 CET

Ecofeminism is a heterogeneous field of theoretical and political practice. A realm of emancipatory praxis before being an academic set of theories, it raises distinct issues in different world areas and their entanglements. This panel will bring together approaches that deploy and expand ecofeminist insights as critical tools of transformative knowledge and approaches that take critical stances towards some aspects of current ecofeminist projects.

Speakers:  Geneviève Pruvost, Fatima Alvarez Castillo and Sophie Lewis

Chair: Bettina Dennerlein and Sébastien Chauvin

Discussant: Nolwenn Bühler

The event is free but registration is required:
