Our evening of poetry with Oliver James Lomax last Thursday saw us reach our maximum limit of 100 Zoom attendees for the first time - wow.

Happy watching.
Le dossier consacré aux configurations des héritages féministes cherchera à mettre en évidence les héritages symboliques et matériels que reçoivent les féministes, et également les héritages qu’elles désirent léguer aux générations suivantes. Par héritage, nous entendons ce que l’on retient ou ce qui est transmis par celles qui nous précèdent, et ce, que les liens avec elles soient choisis, imposés, familiaux ou identitaires. La notion d’héritage est relationnelle, car nous considérons, à l’instar de Françoise Collin, que « la transmission n’est pas un mouvement à sens unique.

Police purges were a massive response to social disorder, yet the question of social control was not limited to the police.

The Conference will be held in Moscow on July 11–13 2021

The exclusion of migrants and their descendants based on racism and xenophobia have a long historical tradition, particularly in the United States and Europe. Recent spike of populism and the securitization of borders highlight the urgency to discuss these topics in an intertwined and transregional perspective. Ramon Grosfoguel will address related questions in his lecture, and Julia Roth (Bielfeld University) will provide a contextual analysis of his presentation.
