Revolutionary Legacies: Jewish Feminist Political Thinking

Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)

Brettschneider will speak about her manuscript, Revolutionary Legacies: Jewish Feminist Political Thinking. This work explores the lives, politics, work, and art of six twentieth-century women: Jamaica Kincaid, Golda Meir, Hannah Arendt, Frida Kahlo, Gertrude Stein, and Emma Goldman. She approaches this study as a political theorist using Jewish, feminist, queer, critical race, class-based, and decolonial co-constructed theories. Brettschneider thinks together with these historical figures to understand them and to imagine new possibilities for Jewish feminist lives, communities, and futures.
