A ‘Minifesta’ as the Promise of Collective Voice

This polyvocal paper written by Yael Padan, Vanesa Castán Broto, Jane Rendell, David Roberts, and others describes the collective writing of a manifesto for urban equality by an international and interdisciplinary team of researchers who met in Kampala, Uganda, in November 2019. It explains the methodologies that inspired the process of writing, reflects on the contradictions that permeate the generation of collective voices, and discusses the relationship between collective voice and situated knowledge. In doing so, it proposes a move from grand manifestos to situated minifestas, arguing for minor literature in the generation of feminist, subaltern knowledge.

Keywords: manifesto; minifesta; collective voice; minor literature; subaltern voices
