LASTESIS in conversation at the University of Sheffield: Art, rights and resistance for the 21st century

November 16 @ 17:30

Mappin Hall,
Mappin Building,
Sheffield S1 3JD

This is a timely event. 50 years after the Chilean coup that ushered forth a violent 17-year dictatorship and 5 years after Chile’s widespread democratic protests, known as the estallido social, they will discuss the importance of understanding history for the present and why feminist theory and resistance matters more than ever. They will also be speaking about their book, Set Fear on Fire: the feminist call that set the Americas ablaze, published earlier this year.

What role does art and performance have in politics and how does it shape activism around the world? What relevance does Chile’s history have for contemporary politics and society?
How has the conceptualisation of human rights changed over time and what rights should we be concerned about safeguarding today?

Join us at the University of Sheffield to find out more and pose your own questions to LASTESIS in an inclusive dialogue.
