The Summer Institute is a week-long feminist course approached from a multi-disciplinary perspective (humanities, social sciences, visual and performing arts). Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as community members are welcome to attend, either for credit or as a conference. The Summer Institute consists of workshops, panels and discussions led by a diversity of instructors and speakers from within and outside Concordia.
The 2017 Summer Institute theme reflects a desire to address crucial and timely issues. In/visible bodies can be disappeared, murdered, imprisoned, medicalized, othered, racialized, veiled, gendered, trans, queer, disabled, aging, migrating, sex working, creating, performing, and resisting. The course focuses on, and mobilizes participants and instructors around women/bodies that intersecting systems of oppression render in/visible.
The Summer Institute will take place on the main campus of Concordia University, in downtown Montreal. Lectures and workshops will take place in accessible spaces.
