Event Description

Social Criticism and Political Thought 

ABSTRACT: The talk assembles a group of manifestoes into an archive for the future of U.S. Marxist feminist theory: Shulamith Firestone’s 1970 Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution, Donna Haraway’s 1985 “Manifesto for Cyborgs,” and the Laboria Cuboniks collective’s 2015, “Xenofeminism: A Politics for Alienation.  The concept of the archive is proposed as an alternative to other ways of imagining the relationship between the feminist theoretical past and future, including the terms canon, author, legacy, and tradition. 

Kathi Weeks is a Professor of Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies at Duke University.
