After mid-semester break, this week we looked at gender and power mainly through the lens of social reproduction and the colonialist of gender. The main readings for the week were by Silvia Federici and the Combahee River Collective Statement.
This week I invited Professor Alison Phipps, my former colleague from Sussex University, and now Professor of Gender Studies At Newcastle University to talk about her wok on gender and sexual violence.
In these 4 parts, Alison takes Arunima Das and myself through gender as a politic device, a social , economic and cultural binary, that is classed, raced, and colonial. the political uses of sexual violence, and how anti-carceral feminists are resisting sexual violence.
