Feminist Killjoys at Work

Lecture/Readings | Diversity, equity, and Inclusion

In this lecture I explore what we come to know about institutions from our efforts to transform them. I will draw especially on two chapters “The Feminist Killjoy as Philosopher” and “The Feminist Killjoy as Activist,” from my forthcoming The Feminist Killjoy Handbook. To be a feminist killjoy (or another kind of institutional killjoy) means not only confronting institutional problems, but challenging how institutions use our efforts to change them as evidence they have changed. The lecture explores how being feminist killjoys at work means recognising that the figure of the feminist killjoy can be appropriated and neutralised. Being feminist killjoys at work also requires finding other institutional killjoys, because the more we come up against, the more we need more.
