The Wilson Institute is proud to announce the virtual visit to McMaster of Dr. Tithi Bhattacharya

The Gendered Logic of Covid-19: Patterns in India and Beyond

Dr. Bhattacharya is a world-renowned authority on Social Reproduction Theory (SRT), which explores everyday life under capitalism. Rather than an approach focused narrowly on waged workers and production, SRT looks more broadly at all the ways in which the social relations necessary for our capitalist way of life are organized—in such spheres as domestic labour, child care, health care, education, and family life. This powerful new lens affords a new appreciation of the many ways capital organizes our lives—and how it might be resisted.

Recently, Dr. Bhattacharya co-authored Feminism for the 99%, a worldwide call to action translated into many languages around the world. It urges feminists to rethink any alliance with “progressive neoliberalism” and to align themselves instead with “every movement that fights for the 99 percent.” It’s widely regarded as a ground-breaking statement from feminists at a time of world crisis.

Join us at 7 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, for one of the world’s foremost feminist thinkers and activists.

Dr. Tithi Bhattacharya, Associate Professor and Director of Global Studies at Purdue University.
