FEMINISMS!

A morning with Marta Segarra

What does it mean to be a feminist today?

Education

In this session with secondary school students, Marta Segarra, Professor of French Literature and Gender Studies, will share her thoughts on present-day feminisms.

Feminisms are on the rise everywhere. International phenomena like #MeToo and local movements like #Onsónlesdones (Where the Women Are) indicate the presence of the feminist movement in both politics and mass culture. But, with so many different perspectives, what are we talking about when we speak of feminism?

In this gathering with Marta Segarra we’ll discuss what is meant by “feminism” today and note the extent to which the themes it covers and the controversies that come hand-in-hand with it are situated in continuity or in tension with earlier feminisms.

Marta Segarra is Professor of French Literature and Gender studies at the University of Barcelona (UB), and research director at the Laboratoire d’Études de genre et de sexualité-LEGS, of the Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique in France. She is co-founder of the Center for Women and Literature: Gender, Sexualities and Cultural Criticism and also of the Women, Development and Cultures UNESCO Chair, both at the University of Barcelona. Moreover, she is an ADHUC (Research Centre on Theory, Gender and Sexuality), also at the University of Barcelona, as well as having been a guest lecturer at other universities around the world. Her main areas of research are gender and sexuality studies, biopolitics and posthumanism and cultural studies. Marta Segarra is the exhibition curator of "Choreographies of genre" within FEMINISMS!, an exhibition project at the CCCB.
