Presenter: Dr. Heather McKee Hurwitz, Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic
Date & Time: Thursday, March 11 at 3:30pm
Zoom Link:

In this talk, Dr. Hurwitz will discuss her new book, Are We the 99%? This text is the first comprehensive feminist and in-tersectional analysis of the Occupy movement. Using immersive first-hand accounts of activists’ experiences, online com-munications and media coverage of the movement, Hurwitz reveals lessons gleaned from the conflicts within Occupy. She compares her findings to those of other contemporary protest movements—nationally and globally—so that future movements can avoid infighting and deploy an “intersectional imperative” to embrace both diversity and inclusivity.
