Anti-imperial epistemic justice: Building solidaristic coalitions in a time of global crises.

Professor Sumi Madhok. Sumi is a Professor of Political Theory and Gender Studies at the London School of Economics

In this International Women’s Day talk, I want to insist on the importance of building solidaristic coalitions for justice to counter the extreme imperial violence of our present. These solidaristic coalitions must be transnational and they must be premised on anti-imperial epistemic justice. Drawing on my current work on transnational anti-gender movements and resistance, and on rights politics in most of the world, I will outline some key elements of my thinking on the anti-imperial epistemic justice and what it means for building solidaristic gender politics in a time of global crises.

A light lunch and refreshments will be available.
