Our annual Decolonizing Feminism seminar series has brought together feminist theorists and activists from many worlds, from various universities and organizations around Sydney and other cities in Australia, coming from backgrounds from around the world, including Palestine, Egypt, Iran, Sri Lanka, India, China, Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Costa Rica, Panama, Italy, Greece, Austria, Turkey, Germany, Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Ireland, and Aboriginal Australia. This year’s seminar will explore ways in which feminist theory contributes to understanding the complexity and diversity of feminist struggles in many worlds: what does it mean to be in and of two or more cultures or worlds at once? How can we think through dimensions of power and history and belonging to theorize these worlds? How can we better understand and participate in local and transnational feminist struggles for freedom and struggles against sexual violence? We will focus on Latina, Indigenous, and Middle Eastern feminisms and feminist theories, new theories of intersectionality, and new theories of sexual violence and sexual subjectivity.
