"Weak resistance. Agency beyond heroism"

"Weak resistance. Agency beyond heroism" Lecture by Ewa Majewska.
The feminine, queer, and colonized generate agency and resistance often invisible for the "Western eye", which tends to focus on the heroic, masculine and exceptional. Ewa’s presentation tends to revisit failure, weakness and the everyday as potentials for the undervalued, ignored and marginalized aspects of the political. She will be discussing the recent feminist movements, particularly – the International Women's Strike and the Women's Strike in Poland, as well as feminist and queer theories of the margins and the core.
