Join Queer Lit at the Whitworth for an evening with renowned feminist author, Sara Ahmed, as she discusses her latest book, The Feminist Killjoy Handbook. In this collection of essays, Ahmed explores the ways in which feminist politics is often met with resistance, and how being a feminist killjoy can be a form of resistance in itself. Drawing on her own experiences and those of other feminists, Ahmed offers insightful and thought-provoking commentary on issues such as racism, sexism, and homophobia, and the ways in which they intersect.
During the event, Ahmed will read from her book, followed by a discussion and Q&A session with the audience. This is an excellent opportunity to engage with one of the most important voices in contemporary feminist thought and to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and rewards of feminist activism.
