'I AM' Series--What is Multicultural Feminism?
What is feminism? How do our racial/ethnic backgrounds, gender, and other cultural identities intersect with our feminist beliefs? How can we better understand feminism through a multicultural lens? What can we learn from African American feminism, transgender feminism, etc.? Professor Ina Seethaler from SLU Women's and Gender Studies Program will lead a workshop to help us explore these questions, and discuss how we can create change through everyday activism.
This event will be held as part of the monthly "I AM" Identity Awareness and Multiculturalism Workshop Series sponsored by the Cross Cultural Center. The workshop series are constructed to facilitate new levels of consciousness regarding concepts of social identity, privilege, multiculturalism, diversity, and social justice. These sessions move beyond the "celebration" of diversity approach to one grounded in empowering participants to become aware and knowledgeable change agents by providing interactive, engaging, and dynamic experiences.
Date: Thursday, March 5, 2015
Time: 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Location: Center for Global Citizenship Seminar, Room 124
Speaker: Professor Ina Seethaler, SLU Women's and Gender Studies
