Citizenship, Gender and Diversity

Seminar to mark the launch of a major new trans-European feminist book series – Citizenship, Gender and Diversity – published by Palgrave and edited by Beatrice Halsaa, Sasha Roseneil and Sevil Sümer. The seminar will present the first two books in the series, which both emanate from the FEMCIT project, an EU FP6 integrated project which ran from 2007-2011:

Remaking Citizenship in Multicultural Europe: women’s movements, gender and diversity (eds. Beatrice Halsaa, Sasha Roseneil and Sevil Sümer)

and

Majority-Minority Relations in Contemporary Women’s Movements: Strategic Sisterhood (Line Nyhagen Predelli and Beatrice Halsaa)

Leading feminist scholars, Nickie Charles, Gabriele Griffin, Gail Lewis, Anne Phillips and Lynne Segal, will offer their responses to the issues raised by the two books, and the seminar will be followed by a celebratory drinks reception.
