Gender Studies Open Seminar
Seminarium
Our guest on 19 October is Åsa Eriksson, doctoral fellow at Department of Ethnology, History of Religions and Gender studies at Stockholm University. The title of her seminar is: Gender, Work, Resistance: Farmworkers in post-strike Western Cape, South Africa.

The seminar will start off with a conversation on ”the logic and operation of capital in the contemporary global arena” (Mohanty 2003: 167), which seems especially important in light of the debate on inequality, identity politics, activism and social change going among feminists and anti-racist activists at the moment.

The theme of this seminar is a pressing one - the Swedish group Livsmedelsarbetare för Solidaritet (Food workers for solidarity) just called for a boycott of Robertson’s Winery, due to the harsh working conditions in the province of Western Cape, South Africa, and as a display of solidarity with the workers there struggling for their rights.

The theme of the Gender Studies Open Seminar is Gender, Class and Capital - Intersectional theories in times of austerity.
