FWSA Annual Conference – Feminist Transitions (Liverpool, UK)

   Feminist Transitions
       22nd Feminist and Women’s Studies Association Conference
       Hosted by Edge Hill University at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, UK
       June 19-21, 2009

       Recent years have seen an unprecedented broadening of feminist issues and
practices. Feminist perspectives have moved across and beyond a number of
established boundaries – including geographical, national, economic,
ethnic, political, theoretical, cultural, popular, sexual and gender – to
expand the scope of the movement. Now more than ever, there is a need for
an inclusive feminism that sees diversity as strength and engages
productively with the complexities and contradictions of the twenty-first
century.

       Keynote Speakers
       Professor Judith Halberstam (University of Southern California)
       Professor Angela McRobbie (Goldsmiths, University of London)

       The aim of this conference is two-fold:
       – to reflect on a wide range of social, cultural, theoretical and global
transitions that have affected and/or modified feminism’s identity,
representation, activism and politics
       – to debate the state of twenty-first-century feminisms

       Further information and full CFP are attached in various formats and the
pdf version is availalbe on the website at
