2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Sir Walter Scott, a writer whose creativity affected the worlds of poetry and prose for generations. He also played an important role in the study of government, justice, and historiography. His writings was a primary source of operatic librettin in the 19th century, and his impact on the worlds of music, art, theatre, and jurisprudence lasted well into the 20th century. In recent years, there has been a revival of interest in his work, and his birthday willl draw further attention to the creations of this polymath.

Vancouver, located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, has long been a site of occupation, exchange, defiance and resilience. From time immemorial, it has been a location of trade and traversal across coastal Indigenous communities of the Pacific and, in more recent centuries, a place where diverse cultures from across the world have encountered each other and interacted through colonial pathways and settlement. Vancouver is a site of Indigenous and international relationships. It is a site of resistance to uneven development, neoliberal markets, colonial laws, and to exclusion.

We are putting together a panel for the 2020 National Women’s Studies Association Conference that considers transnational feminist anger as expressed through digital activism in a variety of contexts. Kenna Neitch, PhD candidate at Texas Tech University, looks at how sexual violence-related hashtags have been discussed on Twitter in four Central American countries. Britt Starr, PhD candidate at the University of Maryland, theorizes a transnational youth solidarity rhetoric deployed by several young women climate activists from around the globe who use social media to build political power from the disenfranchised position of youth.
