Selma James at Maynooth
MA Community Education, Equality and Social Activism podcast
A podcast of this remarkable political intervention (March 13, 2013) is now available at the website of the MA in Community Education, Equality and Social Activism (CEESA).
Founder of the Wages for Housework campaign and coordinator of the Global Women's Strike, Selma James brought a lifetime of movement experience to bear in this electrifying talk. Asked to speak to organisers' needs in the current crisis, she spoke to a roomful of 30 activists and researchers passionately, clearly and incisively for an hour without notes.
The MA CEESA is designed by activists, for activists as a practitioner MA which aims to support the needs of movement organisers and community educators reflecting on their own practice, thinking strategically and "learning from each other's struggles".
