Are we free at all? What does freedom really mean for each of us? What is the relationship between Freedom and Power? What are the subtle ways in which we might have a false perception of our real ability to be free? Are we manipulated into an illusion of freedom? Are we in a simulation where our free will is just part of the code? Are we heading to a Brave New World or a Big Brother world?

Salon: Rich Nomads, Poor Migrants: the human flows of neoliberalism

While there has been a long justification of free movement of capital, the same cannot be said of laborers, who often lack the means to go to places where ...
After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”

How has the history of feminist movements excluded groups who have also advocated for equality? How can social movements with differing aims and goals work together? Have you felt excluded by or negatively affected by feminists or feminist rhetoric?
In this salon we will welcome a diverse group of people to discuss the ways feminism has or has not failed to advocate for us. In doing so, our aim will be to find moments of healing between feminists of different races, classes, gender identities, and sexual orientations who may be at odds with each other.
While our aim will be ...
