Implementing Intersectionality in Education
14th September at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Dr. Yali Hashash is a Mizrahi queer Feminist Jewish scholar, based in Israel. In this talk, Dr. Hashash will explore what motivated her to start up the programme of Gender and Criminology in Or Yehuda College, and will shed light on the non-discriminatory feminist values that shape the structure and content of the course.
Implementing Intersectionality in Education, Tuesday 14th September, 6pm to 7pm, Online
The combination of Hashash’s lived experience, academic work and her involvement in the Haifa based Isha L’Isha feminist grassroots organization, led her to imagine a unique programme of study, designed to enable a wide range of people to access knowledge and offering an important gendered perspective on issues such as victimhood, crime, risk, trauma, rehabilitation and law enforcement.
Hashash will discuss her strategies for removing many of the barriers to education, whether financial, time, or class based to create a diverse group of learners, bringing queer and intersectional life experiences and creating a space where existing legal and institutional procedures can be questioned and reimagined. The talk will also delve into how the diverse nature of the student community ties in with Hashash’s activism. By supporting different voices the course plays a part in ensuring that future decisions around, for example, response to and prevention of gender based violence will be influenced and led by folk who have been previously excluded from discussions because of their sex, race or class.
This talk is curated by Tom Krasny in collaboration with 16 Nicolson Street Gallery as part of a public engagement programme accompanying Krasny’s solo show ‘Crimson Throne’, 10th to 26th September 2021. You can find out more here.
