Open lecture by honorary doctor Sara Ahmed
OR:D138 on entrance level in Orkanen, Nordenskiöldsgatan 10, Malmö
We come to know about worlds from our efforts to transform them. Sara Ahmed, who is to be appointed as honorary doctor at the Faculty of Culture and Society, will give this open lecture, exploring how being a feminist at work requires working on institutions. She will draw on empirical research into diversity, racism and complaint within universities. The lecture will discuss strategies and tactics for challenging power within and beyond the academy with specific reference to the figure of the 'feminist killjoy' and the formation of 'complaint collectives.'
The lecture is free and open to all. Please note that the lecture hall capacity is limited to 312 people. However, the lecture will be live streamed on Facebook. If the lecture hall is full, you will also be able to watch the lecture on the large screen in the room next door, OR:D131.
The doors open at 2:45 PM.
