Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation

Description

This paper examines new forms of feminist e-activism that materialised as a response to the pandemic. Seeking alternatives pathways for feminist-inspired research in the age of Covid-19 pandemic and beyond, this paper discusses a model for virtual cultural engagement connected to resilience building and illustrates in what ways it can assist a group of young women from disadvantaged communities to develop coping mechanisms during the crisis. The paper also explores the ways in which heritage can be experienced, linking with alternative understandings of the past and enabling futures through e-cultural engagement (Kimball, 2017).
