IDEA 010: “They Failed to Remember Us”: Expanding Intersectional Feminisms

This spring ICA Miami hosts a daylong symposium on intersectional feminisms that seeks to present an expanded focus on Black, queer, and indigenous feminisms and on feminist practices inaugurated by such theorists as bell hooks, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, Audre Lorde, Hortense Spillers, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. In times of global cultural regression and political backlash against social justice and especially women’s rights, the symposium seeks to explore different, interdisciplinary approaches that incorporate questions of race, gender, and colonialism as a way to add to a tool kit for urgent, systemic change in the realms of art, activism, and politics.

More details, including schedules and discussion topics, will be announced soon.
