We will provide a link to our webspace and futher information. In this workshop, we want to examine (pop)cultural practices of femininity and feminist positions: what knowledge systems do they draw on? What are their concepts of the (lived) body? We will dive into the contestations of knowledge and experience, the practices of resistance and empowerment and the powerscapes of capitalist regimes. Drawing upon our backgrounds of cultural studies and studies of religion, embodiment theories and feminist-materialisms, we will give a theoretical impulse, work on materials in small groups and open a space for interdisciplinary discussion.
