Emerging paradigms of self-care: 

A critical analysis using the case of the self-managed abortion movement

Dr. Mariana Prandini Assis

This event will be live captioned, and all are welcome.  

Mariana Prandini Assis is a Brazilian human rights lawyer and interdisciplinary activist researcher who harnesses the law to protect and advance movements for social and reproductive justice. Her current research project examines how feminist activism on self-managed abortion, using human rights language and direct action, transforms the ways we conceive of and build systems of care. Mariana has aLLB from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, an MPhil and a PhD in Politics from the New School for Social Research.

Drawing on a rich history of feminist engagement at Dalhousie University and in post-secondary institutions across the Atlantic region, the Dalhousie Feminist Seminar Series brings together faculty and students from across Dalhousie, our colleagues at other institutions in Halifax and elsewhere, and members of the community interested in feminist research and scholarship to present and engage with one another's work in a collegial and supportive environment. The Series was reinitiated in 2015 by Dr. Alana Cattapan, and has been housed in the Gender & Women's Studies Program, with the support of Dr. Liesl Gambold, since 2020. The Series is organized by Erin Wunker, Catherine Bryan, Asha Jeffers, and Eli Manning. An archive of recorded events is hosted on https://hookandeye.ca- Fast Feminism | Slow Academe.
