ABOUT

This session is part of the Feminist Duration Reading Group’s year-long residency at the SLG focused on UK feminist thought, activism and collectivity.

Formed in 2015, the FDRG explores under-known and under-appreciated feminist texts, movements and struggles from outside the Anglo-American feminist tradition.

Sasha Roseneil is Executive Dean of the Faculty of Social and Historical Sciences and Professor of Interdisciplinary Social Science in the Institute of Advanced Studies, University College London. She is a sociologist and gender studies researcher, and a group analyst and psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Her research interests include how gender, sexuality, subjectivity and intimate life are changing, and on the role played by social movements and collective action in bringing about social, cultural and political change.
