Gender, race, colonialism: a conversation with Rita Segato

Rita Laura Segato is an Argentine anthropologist, internationally recognized for her work on feminism and violence against women. She has received several awards, including the “Prêmio Latinoamericano y Caribeño de Ciencias Sociales CLACSO 50 Años,” granted by the Latin American Council of Social Sciences in 2018. Through Segato’s original and engaged thinking, forged in decades of research, activism and teaching, the event will address how gender and race hierarchies were strengthened by colonialism to further the capitalist project.

The conversation will also provide an opportunity to discuss Segato’s work on femicide and femi-genocide advanced in her most recent German-language book Femizid, which will premiere the same day at Volksbühne.

Moderated by Bruna Santos (ECCHR trainee) and Palvasha Shahab (Bertha Global Exchange Fellow). The event will not be screened online.

With an Oud performance by Alaa Zouiten.

The event is supported by the Bertha Foundation.
