Feminist Maps and Mapping Feminism: Lessons from The Women’s Atlas

Thursday 23 May 15:00 until 17:00
Sussex Humanities Lab
Speaker: Professor Joni Seager and The Business of Women's Words
Part of the series: Sussex Humanities Lab and CLHLWR

Joni Seager The Women's Atlas, Myriad Editions

A unique opportunity to hear Professor Joni Seager, pioneering feminist geographer and author of the award-winning feminist classic The Women’s Atlas, whose 5th edition has just been released by progressive map publisher Myriad Editions.

Joni Seager has written a visually stunning survey of up-to-the-minute global data redefines what is meant by an atlas. Comprehensive and accessible, her incisive prose combined with the creative use of illustration, charts and infographics portray as never before how women are living across continents and cultures—the advances that have been made and the distances still to be travelled. Professor Divya Tolia-Kelly, Dr Pollyanna Ruiz and Amy Todd will respond.

We follow with a presentation of a developing map of the UK Women’s Liberation Movement from The Business of Women’s Words project and  discussion with others working on feminist mapping.

There will be an opportunity to play with feminist maps and share ideas.

Please join us to celebrate feminist mapping, for drinks and nibbles, and a chance to buy the book!
