Lack of time, resources, and communal support is responsible for an unprecedented reproduction crisis that is affecting all aspects of our lives. In her presentation, Federici discusses its causes, its social effects, and the struggle we must make to "commonize" care work.
Federici is a longtime feminist activist, teacher, and writer. She is an emerita professor at Hofstra University, and has authored many essays on feminist theory, women’s history, political philosophy, and education. Her published books include: Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body, and Primitive Accumulation; Enduring Western Civilization: The Construction of the Concept of Western Civilization and Its Others (editor); and Thousand Flowers: Social Struggles against Structural Adjustment in African Universities (coeditor).
Copies of her latest book, Revolution at Point Zero (PM Press, 2012), will be available at the talk, or can be purchased online at https://secure.pmpress.org/index.php?l=product_detail&p=420.
