Call for Papers
As Women’s Studies scholars, teachers, and activists, it is our mission to resist backward movements and chart pathways forward. This year’s conference theme addresses the future of Women’s Studies, by highlighting the importance of bridging gaps between academia and practice, translating theory into meaningful and sustainable change, and exploring new understandings of persisting grievances, such as violence against women. Moreover, as we consider how to chart pathways forward, we are challenged to consider the ethics of conducting research on women and gender-diverse subjects, sharing other women’s stories, and reflecting on our own positionality throughout this process.
