AE-BKH WOMEN’S WEEK 2021

“(DIS)LODGED WOMEN: THEORIES OF DOMESTIC SPACES AND SUBJECTIVITY”


Since the AE-BKH began in 2013, its annual Women’s Week, in commemoration of UN International Women’s Day, has served to recognise the important contributions made by women to different fields of human knowledge, as well as to claim women’s rights and promote gender equality.

This year’s edition featured a new collaboration with the UNESCO Chair on Women, Development and Cultures and the University of Barcelona (UB). Entitled “(Dis)lodged women: theories of domestic spaces and subjectivity”, the session (conducted in Catalan) took place on March 11, 2021. Coordinated by Prof. Mònica Rius Piniés, Director of the aforementioned UNESCO Chair, it featured a conversation between Prof. Rodrigo Andrés and Prof. Cristina Alsina, members of the UB research group, Troubling Houses: Dwellings, Materiality, and the Self in American Literature. Popular literary topics such as domestic spaces, power, belonging, subjectivity, confinement and gender were discussed as a mirror of contemporary society.
