National Women’s Studies Association Conference
November 13-16, 2014
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Call for Proposals due February 20, 2014.
NWSA’s annual conference regularly draws more than 1,500 attendees and is the only annual meeting in the US exclusively dedicated to showcasing the latest feminist scholarship.
NWSA’s 2014 conference theme, Feminist Transgressions, endeavors to take up the histories, geographies, affective dimensions, and political stakes of various feminist insubordinations in the spaces they occupy: intellectual and institutional, local and global, public and intimate, by choice and under duress. Mobilizing the multivalent concept of transgression helps reframe interrogations and impositions into those locations where we labor, love, defy, resist, protest, play, create, and/or celebrate.
NWSA 2014 has five subthemes to which papers and panels will be proposed:
- Rethinking the Nation
- Trans-ing Feminisms
- Technologizing Futures
- Creating Justice
- Love and Labor
