CFP for Feminist Theory and the Dissertation: Works in Progress

April 4th, 2013 by Gwen Shaw · 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!

October 9th, 2012 by Meredith Benjamin · Comments Off on 10/11 Meeting: Feminist Pedagogies

Just a reminder that the first (non-organizational) meeting of the Feminist Studies group will take place this Thursday, October 11, from 3-4:30 pm in room 5409.

We’ll be discussing feminist pedagogies (whatever that might mean to you)–if you have favorite resources on the subject, please bring them with you, or post as a comment here! (We’re aiming to develop a helpful archive of these resources.) We’re also very much interested in your own practices, experiences, and questions. Again, if you can’t make the meeting, please share with us here–we want this to be a useful space as its so difficult to get everyone together in person.
