In 21st century capitalism, finance and debt are becoming ubiquitous aspects of life across all countries of the world economy. Deepening and emerging financialized realities pose critical questions for feminists. How are patterns of financial inclusion and exclusion gendered and racialised? How does unequal access to credit shape inequalities of gender, race and class? How can feminist analysis contribute to understandings of debt? What are the alternatives? In this webinar, a panel of feminist scholars and activists on (digital) financial inclusion, debt and financial cooperatives across informal and popular economies will address these key questions exploring power relations and struggles in the time of global financialization of the everyday. 

Speakers:

Serena Natile (Warwick University)

Verónica Gago and Luci Cavallero (Universidad de Buenos Aires, NiUnaMenos)

Caroline Shenaz Hossein (York University Canada)

The speakers will be in conversation with Alessandra Mezzadri, Hannah Bargawi and Sara Stevano (SOAS)
