Conference Theme: Feminism Unbound: Imagining a Feminist Future
What does 21st Century Feminism look like? What are the issues that are or should be shaping its direction? How are global movements of people and ideas changing our theoretical lenses, our political and economic realities, our cultural productions and representations, our forms and foci of activist engagements as well as the tools we use and criteria on which we base our knowledge claims?
Revolutionary Futures: What are the implications of contemporary economic and political crises for envisioning and enacting a feminist future?
Traveling Theory: How is the transnational flow of people and ideas reshaping feminist thinking, scholarship and engagements?
Social Networks, Power and Change: How do we build and utilize social networks (virtual and actual) to create a feminist future?
Decolonizing Knowledge: What are the tools we use to release and utilize subjugated knowledge? What are the bases for our knowledge claims?
Creative Awakenings: How might we re-imagine artistic and creative productions and representations as a source of political and social transformation?
