CFP for Feminist Theory and the Dissertation: Works in Progress

April 4th, 2013 · Comments Off on CFP for Feminist Theory and the Dissertation: Works in Progress

The Feminist Studies Group is putting together an exciting series of workshops for April and May, and if you are currently working on your dissertation, we are hoping you will be part of one of them!

One of the planned events will provide a forum for women’s studies students working on their dissertations (at any stage) to present their work in progress. We are looking for participants, who are part of the certificate program or whose dissertations take a feminist approach, to give a 15-20 minute presentation on some aspect of their research or work to date. The presentations will be followed by a question and answer period in which we hope the presenters will address questions about their process, including:

– Their general experience with writing a dissertation
– How does feminist theory inform their process?
– In what ways do they incorporate feminist theory into their home disciplines?
– Have they experienced any resistance to using feminist methods of inquiry in their dissertation?
We plan to schedule the event in late April or May, depending on the availability of participants.

If you are interested in presenting, please send your name, contact information, a brief description of your work, program, and a general idea of your availability to feministstudiesgroup@gmail.com by Friday, April 12.

We look forward to hearing from you!
