Have we lost the art of collective joy? Join Segal as she talks about her new research, accompanied by a selection of photos illustrating the true nature of happiness found in others.

Leading feminist thinker Lynne Segal believes that we have lost the art of transformative, collective joy. On the occasion of her passionate new book Radical Happiness, Segal calls for the re-discovery of the political and emotional joy that emerges when we learn to share our lives together. Segal is accompanied in conversation by Hilary Robinson, Professor of Feminism, Art and Theory at Loughborough University.

Lynne Segal is Anniversary Professor of Psychology and Gender Studies in the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College. Her books include Is the Future Female? Troubled Thoughts on Contemporary Feminism; Slow Motion: Changing Masculinities, Changing Men; and Straight Sex: Rethinking the Politics of Pleasure. She co-wrote Beyond the Fragments: Feminism and the Making of Socialism with Sheila Rowbotham and Hilary Wainwright.

Hilary Robinson is Professor of Feminism, Art and Theory at Loughborough University. Her research explores the intersection of feminism and art, and aims to develop thinking about the relationship between the practice and theory of each in what has been and continues to be a highly productive juncture. Her publications include Visibly Female: Women and Art Today; Reading Art, Reading Irigaray: The Politics of Art by Women; Feminism-Art-Theory 1968-2014.
