CALL FOR PAPERS

Feminist Pedagogy Conference: Transformations

April 17, 2015

Hosted by the Feminist Studies Group and the Center for the Study of Women and Society

**DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JANUARY 31, 2015**

 

The Feminist Pedagogy Conference seeks participants for a day-long conference entitled “Feminist Pedagogy: Transformations.” The conference will be held on April 17, 2015 at the CUNY Graduate Center, in New York, NY.

The Feminist Pedagogy Conference is a venue for conversation between scholars and activists across the disciplines around the present state of feminist pedagogy and work on gender, both within and beyond the academy. Building on previous work, this is a forum to share pedagogical methods and ideas for teaching in women and gender studies and/or feminist approaches to learning and classroom strategies in various disciplines. Our aim is to address issues of gender and sexuality, in conjunction with race and class, both inside and outside of the academy.

We invite proposals related to the theory and practice of feminist pedagogy in a rapidly transforming university context. For example, proposals might address new forms of pedagogy given the increasing adjunctification of the university, the translation of radical redistributive demands into symbolic gestures of recognition and inclusion, and the increasing reliance upon and exploitation of the affective labor disproportionately performed by marginalized subjects.

We also seek proposals for feminist pedagogical practices that respond to and resist new and old forms of colonial, carceral, racist, or neoliberal feminist thought. How can feminist teachers respond effectively to practices and ideologies of mass incarceration, settler colonialism, homonationalism, pink washing/watching, and the neoliberal rhetoric of personal responsibility and choice that obscures the elimination of the welfare state?

We invite proposals on any of these, or the following topics:

The effect of adjunctification on the practice and theory of feminist pedagogy

Feminist pedagogies of writing, composition, and research methods

Teaching the politics of affective labor

Trans* men and women at gender segregated schools or other institutions

Trans*feminist action and pedagogy

Pedagogies of decentering whiteness, cisgender experiences, or heterosexuality

Anti-racist pedagogies in a “post-racial” age

Decolonizing feminist pedagogy

Teaching global feminisms

Feminist pedagogies for and of the precariat (students, teachers, administrators)

Feminist pedagogy in the era of standardized testing

Technologies of feminist pedagogy

Activism and service-oriented learning

Addressing campus rape culture in the classroom

“Leadership” and feminist pedagogy

Politics of “assessment”

Negative affect and feminist pedagogy

Politics of hope

Feminism in general education

Online/distance learning and feminist pedagogy

Strategies for the feminist classroom

 

Submissions for panels, roundtables, workshops, and creative and/or multimedia presentations are welcome. Those interested should submit abstracts (250-300) briefly describing their intended presentations. Please also specify what type of submission: paper (approx. 20 minutes), roundtable (larger group of 5-10 minute presentations followed by conversation), or creative. We welcome both individual submissions and pre-formed panels or roundtables. We are actively seeking contributions from historically marginalized or underrepresented groups. With your abstract, please include a brief biography.

 

Please submit abstracts to feministpedagogyconference@gmail.com no later than January 31, 2015.

Today, March 13: Eve Dunbar kicks off Critical Diversities and/in the Academy!

March 13th, 2014 · Comments Off on Today, March 13: Eve Dunbar kicks off Critical Diversities and/in the Academy!

CritDiversities Eve Dunbar flyer

Eve Dunbar, associate professor of English and Africana studies and acting dean of the college, Vassar,
launches “Critical Diversities and/in the Academy: Thought and Practice,” a colloquium/speaker series this spring at the CUNY Graduate Center, on Thursday, 3/13. At 4p she’ll meet with students to discuss her
work as a scholar, teacher, and administrator, and at 5:30p she’ll present on her research at a public talk (title forthcoming). Both events will happen in room 8301. (Flyer attached.)

“Critical Diversities and/in the Academy: Thought and Practice,” sponsored by the Diversity Projects Development Fund, University Advisory Council on Diversity, CUNY, and the Doctoral Students Council, CUNY Graduate Center, is directly inspired by various collectives at the Graduate Center and across CUNY working on issues of critical diversity, among them the Mentoring Future Faculty of Color project, the Ad
Hoc Committee Against the Militarization of CUNY, the Revolutionary Students Coordinating Committee, and the organizers and supporters of “The War Here and Abroad: CUNY and U.S. Empire” panel discussion.
The series also responds to the notable recent upswing in scholarly attention to issues of critical diversity in higher education, such as last fall’s Critical Ethnic Studies Association conference “Decolonizing Future
Intellectual Legacies and Activist Practices,” last summer’s Georgetown report “Separate and Unequal: How Higher Education Reinforces the Intergenerational Reproduction of White Racial Privilege,” and Sara Ahmed’s 2012 book ‘On Being Included: Racism and Diversity in Institutional Life.’ The guiding questions are two-fold: How can we meet the critical need for diversities in higher education, and how does this need impact the work we do as scholars and practitioners/activists?

 

Dunbar, author of the 2012 book ‘Black Regions of the Imagination: African American Writers Between the Nation and the World’ (Temple University Press), is Vassar’s associate dean of the faculty, currently serving as acting dean of the college. She is also the author of “Dispatches From Academia: Equity in the Archives” (http://colorlines.com/archives/2013/06/dispatch_from_academia_affirmative_
Her appearance is co-sponsored by the PhD program in English, the Africana Studies Group, and the Women of Color Network, CUNY Graduate Center.
