Launch of Money: A Feminist Issue

by Lisa Adkins on October 22, 2018

Join Australian Feminist Studies (AFS) and the School of Social and Political Sciences (SSPS) at the University of Sydney for the launch of AFS’ special issue on ‘Money’. The issue asks: how is money a feminist issue?

Speakers include:

Lisa Adkins (Head of School, Social and Political Sciences) whose editorial explores how “the new monetary order is a pressing feminist issue… that demands… the building of new and complex theoretical models that are able to engage with what money is now and what it can do.”

Jane Elliott (King’s College, London) who (with Seb Franklin) interviews Marxist feminist theorist Silvia Federici in the special issue on topics as far reaching as: biotechnology; the mystification of gendered labour; the disciplining of productive bodies; and the reproduction of feminism and other social movements in the twenty-first century.

Other contributors to the special issue include:

Melinda Cooper (A/ Professor & ARC Future Fellow, SSPS Department of Sociology and Social Policy) who discusses money as punishment, including the relationship between money and penalty in contemporary neoliberal/neoconservative states.

Silvia Federici (Professor Emerita & Teaching Fellow, Hofstra University) who asks: what are the consequences and implications for women of the imperative waged work and the rolling back of welfare provisions?

Mehita Iqani (A/ Professor and Senior Lecturer, University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg) who discusses how wealth is communicated visually and asks how post-feminist sensibility interacts with wealth.
