NWSA Annual Conference: Negotiating Points of Encounter
Date: November 7-10, 2013
Location: Cincinnati, OH
Call For Proposals: Submission Deadline: February 20, 2013
NWSA's 2013 conference theme, Negotiating Points of Encounter, takes up the geographies, histories, and political stakes of various feminist engagements, confrontations, and struggles - intellectual and institutional, local and global, public and intimate. How are we, or should we be, negotiating these points of encounter as the contours of theories, disciplines, communities, economies, forms of protest, and even national identities shift? How are new spaces for thinking and doing otherwise opened up by reassessing loyalties, renegotiating borders, reconceptualizing pasts, and reimagining embodiments? How do such renegotiations demarcate both exclusions and inclusions? What might they tell about new (or old) ways of effecting change? And what justice or injustices do they foster and/or resist?
NWSA 2013 identifies several thematic areas for critical inquiry and creative engagement in women's and gender studies and related fields: The Sacred and the Profane, Borders and Margins, Futures of the Feminist Past, Body Politics, and Practices of Effecting Change.
