The Global Kitchen: An International Perspective of Women's Unwaged Work

November 12, 2012


The Hull-House Museum is honored to host Selma James, a visionary thinker and radical activist. James, a legendary feminist, anti-racist activist, and thinker, presents her new collection, which brings together six decades of international movement-building and critical thought on unwaged labor.

The vastness of Ms. James' work connects contemporary movements like the modern SlutWalk and domestic worker labor legislation to decades-long examinations of unions, prisons, welfare, Marxism, and anti-Zionism. Her scope is international, linking struggles in United States to revolutions and resistance in Venezuela, Haiti, and Tanzania. The depth and breadth of Ms. James' reading and conversation has wide appeal across different communities and campaigns. Listen in to this inspiring conversation!

This event launches a series of programs connected to the exhibit Unfinished Business: 21st Century Home Economics at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.
This event is co-sponsored by the Social Justice Initiative at UIC. The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is a unit of the College of Architecture and the Arts at UIC.
