Feminist-inspired Activist Imaginaries for Making Change: Social Making, Legacies and Methodological Framings

Panel abstract

The current situation of worldwide instability combined with political popularism, pandemic and climate emergency results in a state of unprecedented worldwide risk. Conditions of risk and instability, at same time, offer opportunities for new imaginative spaces open-up in a lived response to crises. This panel invites theoretical papers and empirical studies that draw on research paradigms underpinned by plurality, continuity and difference within social, material and feminist-inspired research and activism. We welcome interdisciplinary enquiries, artistic interventions, creative works and case studies from the multiplicity of geographies, disciplinary fields and specificities of grassroots struggles. This panel is divided into two subpanels: Weaving Cross-Generational Theory: Alternative Futures for Feminist Activism-Inspired Methodologies & Making Change: Social Making and the Material Imaginaries of Everyday Activisms.
