This event is presented in partnership with The New Republic.
Building a more just feminist politics for today requires a reawakening, a return to the movement’s genuine vanguards and visionaries. Their compelling stories, campaigns, and conflicts reveal the true potential of feminist liberation. The Trouble With White Women gives feminists today the tools to fight for the flourishing of all.
Kyla Schuller is Associate Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Faculty Director of the Women’s Global Health Leadership Certificate Program at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. She is the author of The Biopolitics of Feelig: Race, Sex, and Science int he Nineteenth Century, and her writing has appeared in The Rumpus, Los Angeles Review of Books, and Post Road.
Schuller will be in conversation with Brittney Cooper, the co-editor of The Crunk Feminist Collective and Feminist AF: A Guide to Crushing Girlhood. She is author of Beyond Respectability: The Intellectual Thought of Race Women and Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower. In particular, this work interrogates the manner in which public Black women have theorized racial identity and gender politics, and the methods they used to operationalize those theories for the uplift of Black communities. Along with work on black female public intellectuals, Dr. Cooper studies Black women's organizations as sites for the production of intellectual thought.
