In this conversation with Professor Sunera Thobani (University of British Columbia), SU Middle Eastern Studies Program faculty members Carol Fadda, Amy Kallander, and Dana Olwan will discuss the politics of transnational feminist solidarities that connect struggles beyond fixed geographic borders and academic disciplines. Focusing on movements for liberation and justice across the US, Canada, and the Middle East and North Africa, members of the SU community are invited to join this conversation about the meaning, implications, and challenges of engaged feminist praxis in a time of heightened militarism and rising anti-Muslim and anti-Arab racism.
