GCWS conference: Beyond Revolution or Behind it?
The Politics and Practice of Contemporary Feminism Across Academic and Activist Communities.
Friday, March 23 @ 6:00PM
This cutting edge conference grows out of an interest as academics and activists to
understand the relationship between practice, experience, and theory. Theories of race,
multiculturalism, Marxism, postcolonialism, and feminism ground work in Women's and
Gender Studies - we will consider what realities these theories address (or ignore),
what praxis they strengthen (or fail to), what communities they reach, and which they may
leave behind. Is the grassroots and activist sentiment grounding these concepts trumped
by the theoretical vocabulary used to describe them? Do the pressures of academies and
institutions limit the execution of diverse expressions of feminism in the classroom and
on the ground?
