Alternative Economies Conference

@Mansion, Abdul Kader, Bayrut
Alternative Economies Conference Kohl Main Poster

Overthrowing the current economic system has been a core mobilizer in revolutionary discourse against the status quo, but how does that happen? What are the overlaps of patriarchy and capitalism? What type of labor is valued under the current economy? How does it translate in the practice of our organizing for social and feminist justice? How can we think of gender and class disparities among queer bodies?

At the Alternative Economies Conference, we begin to answer these questions and others. In this conference, which is an extension of Kohl’s summer 2019 issue, we discuss various topics including: labour and migrant domestic work, movement-building and access to resources, the economies of medical patriarchy, and feminist organizing around economic justice.

Kohl invites you to discuss and debate these questions in Mansion, Beirut on June 21-22, 2019.

We conclude day 1 with a spoken word event at Aspasia, Hamra. See:

This event is open to the public.

See you then!
