Additional Details:

The class will read major works of feminist social reproduction theorists, such as Silvia Federici, Mariarosa Dalla Costa, Lisa Vogel, Nancy Fraser and Tithi Bhattacharya, and be introduced to critical concepts, like "Life's Work," and "Life-Story." The course will encourage students to develop their own critical understanding of current neoliberal conditions of life and slow death that are sustained by intersecting systems of power and the evolving material and discursive relations between the Global North and South. Reviewing the major sites of reproductive struggles around the world, the course will collectively explore alternative forms of radical resistance against the neoliberal ways of life.
