AGM and talk by Dr Gail Lewis: “Questions of Presence”
Friday December 4th, 4-30pm -> 6.00pm
More a collection of unfinished thoughts than a scripted paper, this presentation is an invitation for a collective attempt to begin to define and identify how it might be possible to be black and a woman in these post-Brexit, post-Obama times.
Free and open to everyone – followed by drinks reception.
Venue: This talk will be in 26 Bedford Way, which houses UCL Psychology and is next door to the Institute of Education.
About the speaker: Gail Lewis is an academic and Head of the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College and a psychotherapist. Her political subjectivity was formed in the intensities of black feminist and anti-racist struggle and through a socialist, anti-imperialist lens. She was a member of the Brixton Black Women’s Group and one of the founder members of the Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent. She has written on feminism, intersectionality, the welfare state, and racialised-gendered experience. She is a Tottenham fan.
