The University of Wyoming’s Gender and Women’s Studies Program will host famous philosopher Alison Jaggar to help celebrate Women’s History Month in March.
Jaggar, a professor of distinction at the University of Colorado-Boulder, will give a lecture on relations among nationalism, liberalism and feminism in context of debates about immigration. She will speak at the Alice Hardie Stevens Event Center at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 14, with a catered reception to follow. The event center is located at 603 E. Ivinson Ave. in Laramie.
Jaggar’s talk is titled “‘You Will Not Replace Us!’ Decolonizing Liberalism and Feminism in Search of Immigration Justice.” She situates the issue by recalling some common misunderstandings of liberalism and some reasons for opposing it. She says that, in principle, liberalism and feminism are opposed to discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and gender but, in practice, claims by some liberals and feminists have helped rationalize excluding would-be migrants for ethnocentric and racist reasons.
