Feminism, Time, Event: A Roundtable

Come Join Us!

John us for a roundtable featuring Kate Derickson (Univ. of Minnesota, Geography), Lorena Munoz (Univ. of Minnesota, Geography), and Miranda Joseph (Univ. of Arizona, Gender and Women's Studies).

This roundtable features feminist geographers discussing critical theoretical and methodological approaches to capitalism through temporality and event. They consider how feminist political economy incisively transforms how we think about neoliberal globalization, financialization, and climate change.

Her current project examines how queer Latina immigrant women who work in the low wage service sector, negotiate and perform their gendered and queer identities differently across heteronormative, male-dominated spaces of low-wage labor in Los Angeles. Her other research interests are focused on minority students access to STEM education.

Miranda Joseph
