The Pembroke Center will host a conversation with Silvia Federici, Italian-American scholar and activist; co-founder of the International Feminist Collective; and organizer with the International Wages for Housework campaign. Federici served as Professor Emerita of Social Sciences at Hofstra University where her research focused around questions of colonialism, capital punishment, immigration and emigration, globalization and global market inequality, food politics, elder care and capitalism, and academic freedom in Africa.
Federici will be discussing her life and work as evidenced through her archival papers, which she donated to the Pembroke Center’s Feminist Theory Archive in 2018.
Hosted by Federici scholars Arlen Austin and Emily Callaci, the conversation will take place in Room 305 (top floor) of Pembroke Hall (172 Meeting Street, Providence, RI 02912) at 2 p.m.
Tickets are free, but there is a cap on attendees, so please RSVP if you are interested in attending. Please arrive by 1:55; any tickets not presented at that time will be released to the waitlist.
