The Postcolonial Feminist Seminar

The Postcolonial Feminist Seminar is an open interdisciplinary seminar for researchers, students and activists interested in postcolonial and gender issues.

We read and discuss texts, as well as listen to researchers who usually speak for around 30-45 minutes or so followed by questions and discussion. The Seminar will be held in Swedish and/or English, hence sometimes just in English. The seminar is arranged by Umeå Centre for Gender Studies (UCGS), held in UCGS's library in Samhällsvetarhuset at level 4, unless otherwise specified.
