Anti-Racist Feminist Organizing in a Transnational World: Tami Navarro

Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America (CSREA) and the journal Gender, Work & Organization

This three-part speaker series will focus on various ways anti-racist feminist methods of organizing are taking shape in an increasingly connected, transnational world. Prof. Tami Navarro (March 25, 2021), Prof. Laura Briggs (April 1, 2021), and Prof. Chandra Talpade Mohanty (May 6, 2021) will speak about various ways their work and research highlights shared struggles but also distinct ways anti-racist feminist practices can be deployed in different societies, organizations and contexts towards gender and race justice. 

Please join us on March 25, 2021 for a series presentation by Tami Navarro, Associate Director, Barnard Center for Research on Women (BCRW) and Editor of the journal Scholar and Feminist Online. Prof. Navarro will examine the ways in which processes of racialization and gendered expectations shape employment opportunities, both historically and at present.
