Professor Desai will discuss the politics of transnational projects to build links and solidarities between movements of women activists differently situated in local and global systems of power. She will share insights gained from sustained engagements with the dynamic ways in which localized movements challenge global injustices while insisting on differences. How do differently situated and subordinated groups learn from one another? How do we build bonds of solidarity necessary to sustain a global movement for justice?
