Jessica Zykhovych’s online lecture took place

On March 18, the Department of UNESCO “Philosophy of Human Communication” and Social Sciences and Humanities together with the Center for Folklore Studies of the University of Alberta (Canada) in the framework of international cooperation held another public online lecture on “My room: lessons for feminists and gen. ». The lecture was given by Dr. Jessica Zykhovych, who deeply revealed the essence of such concepts as “feminism” and “feminists”, demonstrated the history of Virginia Woolf, and presented her book “Fundamentals: Art, Activism and Feminism in Ukraine in 2004-2014”, which was published in Toronto.

The topic of the lecture provoked a lively discussion at the end of the online meeting. That is why the Department of UNESCO’s “Philosophy of Human Communication” and Social Sciences and Humanities does not stop with the assistance of Associate Professor IV Scooby, who is currently in Canada, will continue to implement the international project “Ukraine in the Global Dimension”. The next lecture will take place in April.
