Our next event features activist / PhD candidate from U of Otago MAHDIS AZARMANDI speaking ‘On Being and Becoming – Musings of a Radical Feminist of Colour*’
“Structured as a personal narrative, this talks seeks to highlight the contradictions and complexities of what it means to be feminist and a woman of color. Rather than focusing on a particular topic or on specific feminist theory, the presentation will draw from personal experience and weave theory and practice together by using narrative.
Mahdis Azarmandi has an activist-academic-and aspiring artist who has lived and worked in Europe, the Middle East, the US and now Aotearoa New Zealand. Rather than focusing on mainstream, western feminism, her talk is focused on racialization, islamophobia and other forms of oppression and how to navigate them in academic and activist circles – or rather how to keep sane when at intersections of oppression.”
When: 23/5 6pm – 7.30pm
