Relebohile Moletsane

Nurturing Feminist Remembering and Building Resilience Among Young People in the context of Structural Violence

What would happen if, in the context of violence and the suffering it brings to young people in particular, we considered the benefits of feminist remembering and its potential for building and nurturing their resilience? In this presentation, I will examine the use of remembering, and its potential for building and nurturing resilience among young people impacted by violence. Addressing the question: How do social ecologies enable/constrain the resilience of young people in the face of sustained structural violence, the paper will use the concepts, remembering and resilience to analyse short autobiographical stories of young women from a rural context, in which they reflect on their life journeys and the strategies they use to negotiate their lives in the social ecologies in which they live.

Symposium Guidelines

Session Length: 90 minutes

A symposium presentation consists of either 3 or 4 related presentations on a specific theme, issue, or question relating to the conference focus. At least one of the papers must be a Global South contribution. Each paper must be summarized in a 200 word abstract (introduction/method/findings/implications). The chair submits a symposium title (20 words) and a summary abstract (50 words). All presenters must register for the conference if the symposium is accepted. We suggest that the chair gather all the required information from co-presenters in advance and act as coordinator for the submission. The symposium title and summary abstract must be submitted separately for each symposium paper.
 
If your symposium will be consisting of 3 related presentations you will be given time for a discussion period. If you opt for a discussion period you must find someone else to facilitate the discussion. This person cannot be involved in any of the presentations. The chair person is allowed to be the facilitator if, and only if, they are involved in none of the presentations.
 
If your symposium will be consisting of 4 related presentations there will be no discussion period. The chair person for the symposium presentation is allowed to be part of only one of the presentations.
