Feminist Workshop

(Post) Institutionalized Feminism: Defining the ?F-word?

Stuart Hall warned against the institutionalization of feminism saying
that once incorporated into the institution it would lose its vibrant
social and political activism. bell hooks ostensibly agrees with
Hall?s assessment in the 2004 film, ?Is Feminism Dead?? This workshop
seeks to interrogate the supposed ?death? of feminism in our cultural
moment, in which both Women?s Studies departments and ?I am not a
Feminist, but. . .? figure largely. We intend to strategizing
locations for political action from academic and social perspectives
and plot a course to reinvigorate the usefulness of The F-Word.
