This webinar will explore the intersections of feminist and anti-racist activism in the Middle East and North Africa.
Professor Nadje Al-Ali will be in conversation with Maie Panaga, Menna Agha, Nabila Moussaoui, and Khawla Ksiki - four prominent feminist activists and researchers who are engaged in anti-racist campaigns and politics.
They will be exploring the question of racism within the Middle East and North Africa and the way feminist movements in the region have historically often been complicit in maintaining and reproducing racism. What if anything has changed recently? How do younger generations of feminist and queer activists approach racism? How has feminism changed in the region? Has the global Black Lives Matter movement had an impact on anti-racist struggles in the Middle East and North Africa?
This webinar is part of a series of events focusing on gender and feminist issues on the one hand, as well as a series of events around anti-Black racism in the Middle East and its diasporas.
