Feminist No Borders Summer School

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


The annual feminist no borders summer school provides a space of encounter, mutual learning, and inspiration for researchers, activists, artists, and members of community organisations to exchange experiences, strategies, and struggles across and against borders.

We seek to displace the hegemony of academia as the primary location from which knowledge is produced and distributed.

It’s an antiracist, abolitionist feminist space that seeks to challenge the division between knowledge and practice and to intervene in the dominant ways in which borders are reproduced in academia, media, and humanitarianism.

In the summer school, we practise alternative ways of learning, listening, and speaking to each other, prefiguring political communities through which we’d like to struggle.

In 2022, the summer school took place over four days in three physical locations: Palermo, Heraklion, and Berlin. There was also a virtual node to facilitate the participation of those who are prevented from travelling due to the border regime (as well as other barriers).

Each day, we met within each node as well as hybridly, to enable conversations and exchange across these locations, and to connect our struggles in different localities.
