The last chapter of the Mini-Series co-organized by Vanessa Thompson and Katherine Mazurok: Legacies of War. Imperialisms, Racisms and Transnational Feminist Solidarities

        Fossil fuel wars, energy crisis and resistance                                                   

This series aims to interrogate, from a transnational feminist perspective, articulations and politics of war, in their many forms and on a global scale. We ask how we can challenge global hierarchies in the perceptions of war, imperialisms, racisms as well as move towards building transnational feminist, anti-imperialist and anti-racist solidarities.
