Emma Goldman Awards Ceremony
Speakers: Agata LisiakAkwugo Emejulu
The IWM is proud to host the second Emma Goldman Awards ceremony, awarded since 2020 by the FLAX Foundation. These awards are given to talented and engaged scholars working on feminist and inequality issues in Europe, to support their research and development.
After a welcome by Ivan Vejvoda, acting rector of the IWM, the programme starts with two speeches. Agata Lisiak, former junior Fellow at the IWM and professor at Bard College Berlin, will talk on “Recalcitrant: Emma Goldman, Rosa Luxemburg, and the politics of waywardness”.
She is followed by a keynote Speech by professor Akwugo Emejulu, one of the inaugural Emma Goldman awardees, on “The Lonely Activist”.
The award ceremony is twofold, starting with presenting the seven 2020 Emma Goldman Snowball awardees, who had no earlier chance for a celebration due to COVID restrictions, and the seven new 2021 Emma Goldman awardees.
