Speaker Event: Patricia Hill Collins, 'We Who Believe in Freedom Cannot Rest: Lessons from US Black Feminism'

We are pleased to be welcoming Patricia Hill Collins to speak in Oxford on 22 May 2015. 

When it comes to feminism, anti-racism, and similar social justice projects, the true test lies less in how we celebrate victories, but rather in how we respond to defeat. In her talk, she sketches out three ideas or "lessons" culled from the rich tapestry of Black feminism in the U.S. that might inform contemporary social justice projects.

Professor Patricia Hill Collins is currently Distinguished University Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her work primarily concerns issues of feminism and gender in the African American community, and she has been central in advancing the concept of intersectionality.
