Symposium: Academia meets Activism: Feminism in China

April 17, 13:30 – 18:15

Emmy-Noether-Saal, Tagungs- und Veranstaltungshaus Alte Mensa, Wilhelmsplatz 3, Göttingen

Voices of Struggle explores the complex entanglements between activism and academia in transnational perspective. What does it mean to be an engaged or activist scholar today? How should we think about the connections/separations between the two spheres of activism and academia? And how can activists and academics best combine their strengths to effect change? In what ways are deepening transnational connections re-shaping the practice of activism around the globe? It brings together leading scholars and activists to discuss these questions in relation to the development of feminism and LGTBQ activism in China and beyond.

Participants:
