The past few years have marked the anniversary of a number of landmark moments, publications and legislation crucial to feminism, including the passage of Roe v. Wade, the publication of The Feminine Mystique and The Bell Jar, and the legalization of birth control. What potential do we have for new creation when we revisit historical, cultural, and physical space? SEWSA 2014 provides a forum to analyze, discuss, and represent diverse histories, theories, and actions that revisit and reexamine feminisms. The conference invites conversations surrounding The Ebb and Flow: Navigating the Changing Landscapes of Feminism that are transformative in the interdisciplinary study of women, gender, and sexuality. The conference will foster a vigorous, open and inclusive dialogue about different avenues to change and transformation. Reflections on changes in feminisms, and all forms of political action, from rage to compromise, will be considered. All disciplines and levels of scholarship are welcome.
Proposals for papers, panels, poster sessions, performances, stagings, and showings accepted until November 1, 2013. SEWSA 2014 highly encourages panel proposals. Notifications will be sent out by December 15, 2013.
