Hot Topic Lecture with Silvia Federici on Social Reproduction, followed by debate with Ida Dequeecker, Benedikte Zitouni, Kopano Maroga

"Rethinking and Restructuring Social Reproduction In times of Racist Violence and Global Epidemic".

The current global crisis has shown that vast processes of change will be needed to repair the broken infrastructures and address the social inequalities that are at the origin of the pandemic. Silvia Federici argues that the coming together of a broad range of struggles over healthcare, agriculture and food production, environmental justice and care work, as well as the rejection of all forms of racism and xenophobia are the condition not just for a return to 'normality', but for the transformation of the crisis into an opportunity for change.

The lecture will be followed by a conversation between Silvia Federici and Ida Dequeecker, Benedikte Zitouni, Kopano Maroga
