‘Decolonising Feminism’ Workshop
Building 67 Room 202 (67.202) 26 July 2pm -4pm
The decolonisation of feminism requires that when we consider feminist issues, we are careful not to view them from a colonial, Western-centric perspective. What does this mean for you personally, and for your research, teaching or creative practice?
