Inhospitable Places: Feminist Thinking on Whiteness, Men, and Various Kinds of Women in South African contexts.

Inhospitable Places is a feminist project that works with thinking about race, gender and class in contemporary South African contexts. Conceptualising inhospitability as being unwelcoming and not generous, I consider how power and subjugation continue to operate in various South African spaces. In engaging a variety of texts across disciplines — feminist studies, critical race studies, and literary and cultural studies — the project uses a phenomenological approach that centralises my own experiences of living in the world, alongside existent theory. The interdisciplinary and exploratory project focuses on three main areas: whiteness, race, injury and violence; the ungrievable lives of boys and men of colour, and feminism, mothers of colour, and birthing bodies.
