New Book: To Exist is to Resist

Inspired by the conferences in Edinburgh and Amsterdam, we are editing a book: To Exist is to Resist: Black Feminism in Europe.

This edited collection will explore how women of colour:

  • Theorise Black feminism and womanism from European perspectives
  • Build and sustain activist spaces for survival and resistance
  • Challenge, subvert and transform socialist, feminist, populist and/or anarchist politics
  • Develop transnational alliances and intersectional and intergenerational coalitions for equality and social justice
  • Engage with creative practice as a means of activism and self-preservation

We have an agreement in principle from Pluto Press to publish this edited collection.


We seek 3,000-5,000 word chapters (including bibliography) in English from activists, practitioners, artists, students and scholars by Monday, 18th September 2017.

If you’re interested in contributing a chapter, please contact Akwugo Emejulu.
