Autonomies: A Speaker Series
This student-led speaker series confronts the present moment as a crisis of autonomy. Cries for
self-determination and self-governance have never been as vocal as today. At the same time,
infringements on political, legal, and bodily autonomy seem to form the persistent backdrop for a
culture of curated individualism and the search for collective forms. Autonomies proposes that
autonomy exists in the plural; autonomy not as individualism but as community care, as
collective resistance against discrimination and marginalization. It highlights contemporary
social movements, amplifies voices outside of the academy, and realizes spaces for action.
“Reproductive Justice,” the first annual theme of Autonomies, seeks to offer a forum for thinking
through agency in the present, after the rollback of abortion rights and other policies that
marginalize people for the fact of their bodies and choices. It asks what justice would look and
feel like in the reproductive field?
