The Reciprocal Politics of Bed Space Activism: From Confinement to Radical Care
Friday, April 9, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
This webinar (panel discussion) is the first in the 2021 Humanities Without Walls virtual conversation series funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Beds have been the center of urgent political struggles—be they in prisons, detention centers, hospitals, or nursing homes. Our virtual conversation series centers “bed activism,” complex forms of resistance and visionary care that emerge from the intimate spaces of sick, disabled, detained, and imprisoned peoples. It connects a long-term vision of connecting communities and movements at the nexus of abolition feminism, migrant justice, and disability justice.
