Charming for the Revolution, Jack Halberstam

” I propose that even as capitalism shifts course, changes its emphasis and re-organizes exploitation and currency, feminism and other forms of critical thinking also mutate, shift and change course; the cluster of critical responses to capitalism that have circulated in the twentieth century (anti-colonialism, anarchism, socialism, the multitudes, the undercommons, punk, critical race theory, critical ethnic studies, etc.) have also transformed themselves from identitarian pursuits grounded in the histories of exploitation and oppression, to new understandings of solidarity, commonality and political purpose. This talk explores a new version of feminism as it mutates and interacts with innovative modes of activism around the world.”
