The event is the first of a series of discursive gatherings, curated by iLiana Fokianaki, entitled "Gossips” inspired by Silvia Federici's writings and her recent book Witches, Witch-Hunting and Women.

Gossips

This series of lectures aims to bring women together, to re-generate and re-perform the original concept of “the gossip” as a support structure for women’s ideas, thinking processes and exchanges. It also wishes to collectivise feminisms discourses and create a platform through which there can be new utterances to counteract and address anew all the words used to define and degrade women (Federici) and deconstruct and unfold them. Moreover, it aims to offer an open dialogue with its audiences, through real life case studies and sharing of non-linear knowledges, breaking epistemic injustices; knowledges that wish to operate contrary to sexist rhetorics and patriarchal ways that we witness in culture and society, by way of practicing and being otherwise, as a cultural workers and women. Aspects of theory that we will touch upon through the feminist perspective for this series are: labour, reproduction, intersectionality, hate speech & fake news, feminism vs the alt-right.
