Kateřina Kolářová on "Post-Socialist Rehabilitations: Disability, Race, Gender and Sexuality and the Limits of National Belonging"
Please join us for an event in the Minority Inclusion and Exclusion in Soviet and Post-Communist Societies Speaker Series, a discussion with Kateřina Kolářová, Assistant Professor of Cultural Studies at Charles University, Prague on the book project Post-Socialist Rehabilitations: Disability, Race, Gender and Sexuality and the Limits of National Belonging.

Post-socialist Rehabilitations: Disability, Race, Gender and Sexuality and the Limits of National Belonging interrogates affective economies of trans/national belonging and abandonment that reformulated the post-socialist citizenship vis-à-vis discourses of disability, race, gender and sexuality. Building off of a varied archive comprising cultural representations, popular media, public discourses as well as counter- discourses of feminist, queer, disabled, racialised communities, the book asks: how were the processes of social change, the ‘democratisation’ of society (subsequent to the regime change in 1989) predicated upon creating zones of abandonment and social death sanctioned both by state and liberal publics? The book politicizes the layered temporalities and relations among gender, sex, race, disability and nationality through the concept of capitalist rehabilitation discussing the integration of the (Czech) post-socialist national subject into global capitalism.

This event will also be streamed on YouTube Live:
