Decolonizing Individualisms

Serene Khader (CUNY)

Date: Tuesday, 9th of May
Time: 13:00 - 14:00
Venue: W6A 708, Macquarie University

I attempt in this talk to disentangle the forms of individualism that promote imperialism from those that are normatively central to feminism. I explore individualist justificatory strategies that neutralize the harms of neoliberalism, militarism, and cultural imperialism. I show that such justificatory strategies fail to distinguish what I call "independence individualism" from what I call "standing individualism" and argue that there are distinctly feminist reasons for skepticism about independence individualism.
