Raewyn Connell, one of Australia's leading social scientists, is Professor Emerita at the University of Sydney and a life member of the National Tertiary Education Union. She is the author of Southern Theory, Masculinities, and other books.

In this talk, Raewyn will invite you to think about the shape and sources of our problems in higher education, local and global; the resources (some unexpected) that we have for dealing with them; and post-colonial, democratic pathways into a different future. These are themes of her new book The Good University (Zed books 2019):

Queer & Trans Global Activism

20th June, 17:30-19:00

Waterstones, Sidney St, Cambridge

QTI Coalition of Colour are holding a queer qandi fest in June and we are co-organising a panel on queer and trans global activism.

50 years after the Stonewall riots, spearheaded by Black and POC trans activists, we wish to celebrate and acknowledge the work, importance and involvement of QTI of colour in the lgbtq+ movement. We will do this by organising queer qandī fest, a four-day festival with talks, workshops, film screenings and art exhibition. We hope to raise awareness about representation, intersectionality and ways to move forward and build bridges in the era of identity politics and disenfranchisement.
