Anarchafeminism in Times of COVID with Chiara Bottici

In this talk, I argue that anarchafeminism is a particularly timely form of feminism, because it is able to articulate a feminist position without turning the latter into yet another form of essentialism, or, even worse, white privilege, and that an ontology of the transindividual is the best possible philosophical ally for such a project. The Covid-19 crisis made it quite clear that women are not only at the forefront of care work, but also those who paid the highest price for the lockdown, since gender violence has dramatically increased since the beginning of the pandemic. But it also made clear that our methodological individualism is largely inadequate, thus pushing us towards a different social ontology.

Presented by Chiara Bottici, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Director of Gender Studies Prep reading: Anarchafeminist Manifesto 1.0; Bodies in Plural.


In The Current Moment: Perspectives from the Social Sciences and Humanities, 11 professors from The New School for Social Research share their own in-depth analyses on how a variety of contemporary social, political, economic, cultural and ethical problems have been amplified by the pandemic.
