Manifesto for a Feminist Nationalism; National and Gender Oppression in the Catalan Countries: Júlia Ojeda Caba (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya)

Mar 5 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
UCLA Lydeen Library (Rolfe Hall 4302),

This talk is based on the Manifesto for a Feminist Nationalism that Dr. Ojeda published on March 8, 2023, along with the Matriotes collective in the Catalan Countries. The manifesto claimed for a new intersectional perspective for the Catalan case that combines “the national oppression with the structural violence that patriarchy and global capitalism exert against subaltern individuals.” Basing on experiences from elsewhere—from the African-American and Latin feminists, to indigenists from Abya Yala and Chinese activists against sexual harassment—, the authors highlight the “predatory” nature of the Spanish nationalism, and propose intersectional feminism as an emancipatory tool. They also highlight the key role that the Catalan language plays in the nation’s dynamics as it is considered the base of the Catalan national identity. Dr. Ojeda will also present her upcoming book Màtria o Barbàrie. 30 visions del feminisme català (‘Matriarchy or Barbarianism. 30 views of the Catalan feminism’), which gathers contributions from all Catalan Countries.
