Caliban and the Witch – Witch Hunts in the Present Day

Montag, 23. Juni 2014, 18:30 - 21:00


Lecture by Silvia Federici

Like at the dawn of capitalist development, today as well the global expansion of capitalist relations is driven by a broad attack on our reproduction and the escalation of violence against women including new forms of witch-hunting. In her presentation Federici examines the factors motivating these new persecutions, while revisiting the main themes of Caliban and the Witch, stressing in particular the relation between witch-hunting, capitalist development and the capitalist restructuring of gender relations.

Respondent: Suzana Milevska
