Résumé de la vidéo

La Faculté des Langues et Cultures Étrangères (FLCE) et le Centre de Recherche sur les Identités Nationales et l'Interculturalité (CRINI) organisait  le 23 mars 2017 une  conférence avec Maureen O'Connor, chercheuse invitée à l'Université de Nantes. Elle portait sur les liens entre le discours féministe de femmes irlandaises au tournant du XXe siècle et le végétarisme. Prononcée en anglais, elle était intitulée: "Animal Souls and Votes for Women: Intersections between Diet and Politics in the Work of First-Wave Irish Feminists".

Version anglaise :

The video recorded on March 23, 2017 at the University of Nantes as Maureen O'Connor had been invited at the Maison des Chercheurs Etrangers for a month, looked at four Irish women active at the turn of the twentieth century: Eva Gore-Booth, Margaret Cousins, Charlotte Despard, and Alice Stopford Green. All four women were feminists, workers' advocates, Irish nationalists, and vegetarians. Their work anticipates  contemporary feminist new materialism regarding the relationship between the human and the non-human, as well as the revolutionary impact of a revised understanding of that relationship. While first-wave Anglo-American feminism often took antivivisection and vegetarianism as part of its anti-patriarchal remit, I argue that there are unique implications for such advocacy in an Irish context.
