We are excited to welcome Patricia Hill Collins to speak in Oxford this May.
Professor Hill Collins will deliver a talk entitled "We Who Believe in Freedom Cannot Rest: Lessons from U.S. Black Feminism"
Abstract: When it comes to feminism, anti-racism, and similar justice projects, the true test lies less in how we celebrate victories, but rather in how we respond to defeat. In her talk, she sketches out three ideas or "lessons" culled from the rich tapestry of Black feminism in the U.S. that might inform contemporary social justice projects.
Her talk will be followed by a Q&A period hosted by the Black Association of Rhodes Scholars (BARS).
Professor Hill Collins is currently Distinguished University Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her work primarily concerns issues of feminism and gender in the African American community, and she has been central in advancing the concept of intersectionality.
This event is co-sponsored by the Rhodes Project, the Oxford Human Rights Hub, the Said Business School, Merton College and the Black Association of Rhodes Scholars.
