Transnational Feminist Solidarities Conference

April 18 @ 12:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Transnational Feminist Solidarities Committee invites you to the Transnational Feminist Solidarities Conference, which will take place on Thursday, April 18, and Friday, April 19, 2024, at CSULB. This conference is organized with the support of the CLA Thematic Initiative and funded by a generous contribution from former CLA Dean Dorothy (Dee) Abrahamse.

Transnational feminisms offer a critique of Western-Eurocentric and liberal feminisms and simultaneously inform and emerge from various radical feminist frameworks including, but not limited to, women of color, postcolonial, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, and abolitionist feminisms. Invited speakers will offer critical analysis of our shared existence and how we might produce a more life-affirming world, contemplating how solidarity and collective action might be generated across geopolitical borders, identities, and subjectivities.

Where: Cal State Long Beach – Thurs. 4/18: University Theater & Anatol Center & Friday 4/19: COB 140A & HC 100
