Feminist Utopias: past, present and imagined
Presented by ANU Gender Institute & ANU School of History
What does it take to maintain optimism in a time of anger, fear and division?
How can we revive hope in the midst of despair?
And what can feminist thinking and mobilisation offer in our search for answers to these questions?
Feminist Utopias: Past, Present and Imagined is a multi-disciplinary gathering of academics, activists, artists and musicians. Collectively we explore histories of feminist visions, the cutting edge of current actions, and a myriad of liberatory ideas with potential to shape the future.
Presentations include talks, dramatisations, film, dance, and live musical performance
