Silvia Federici co-founded the International Feminist Collective, which launched the international campaign for Wages For Housework, and is a co-founder of the Committee for Academic Freedom in Africa, an organization dedicated to generating support for the struggles of students and teachers in Africa against the structural adjustment of African economies and educational systems. From 1987 to 2005 she taught international studies, women’s studies, and political philosophy at Hofstra University. She is the author, most recently, of Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body, and Primitive Accumulation (2004), the collection of essays Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle (2011), and the chapbook Witch-Hunting, Past and Present, and the Fear of the Power of Women (2014).
We will circulate a couple of short texts by Silvia Federici in preparation for the event. If you would like to receive these, or if you would like further information about the event, please email Matthew Garrett. (mcgarrett(at)wesleyan(dot)edu).
