Kyla Schuller: Counterhistories of Feminism
January 13 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Location: Online only
Join us for a book talk with Rutgers University’s Kyla Schuller as part of the “Inside the Center” series, which highlights the writing and research of current and recent Humanities Center fellows.
As feminists rise up and flood the streets in the years since Trump’s election, the movement has simultaneously strengthened its own internal critique. A new term has bloomed in the grassroots: white feminism. But what exactly does it mean, and is it a new phenomenon? In this talk, Kyla Schuller (2017–18 Humanities Center fellow) shares the insights of her new work The Trouble with White Women: A Counterhistory of Feminism, revealing that feminism has long been comprised of multiple streams in tension and often outright conflict.
