Melb 2017 Feminist Lit Then & Now @MWF

We are thrilled to once again partner with MWF to present a special event during the festival in August.

Join Emily Maguire, Melissa Lucashenko and Natalie Kon-yu for a discussion of feminist writing past, present and future. How has feminist writing changed over time? As our understanding of intersectionality deepens, do classic texts hold up? And where to next? With chair Sophie Cunningham.

Feminist Lit: Then & Now
Saturday 26 August, 1pm
