This panel provides a multidisciplinary discussion of Eléonore Lépinard’s book, Feminist Trouble (Oxford Scholarship Online, 2020), which investigates contemporary conflicts and dilemmas surrounding race, Islam, and intersectionality in the French and Québécois feminist movements. Drawing on qualitative fieldwork, Lépinard proposes that feminism should be considered both a moral and a political project, and dissects how moral boundaries uphold hierarchies, especially of race, within feminist organizations and movements. The panelists will offer a variety of perspectives on the centrality of whiteness and the role of intersectionality in dismantling power hierarchies and reinventing inclusive feminist subjects in Francophone and other spaces.
