New Film on the Women’s Movement and Women’s Liberation | H-Women | H-Net

Naomi Pullin's insight:

Structured as a personal journey of rediscovery by filmmaker Jennifer Lee, this documentary brings the momentous first decade of second-wave feminism vividly to life. Its trajectory starts with the earliest stirrings in 1963 and ends with the movement’s full blossoming in 1970. A wealth of period footage captures landmark events and the pivotal roles of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Redstockings, and other organizations. Thirty-five diverse interviewees, including rank-and-file activists along with well-known feminists Betty Friedan, Frances M. Beale, Gloria Steinem, Robin Morgan, Ti-Grace Atkinson, and others, share memories of the period as well as issues and challenges that still resonate today.

CFP: NORTH WEST GENDER CONFERENCE 2015
Naomi Pullin's insight:
This inter-disciplinary conference is run ‘by PGR’s, for PGR’s’ and will provide a unique opportunity for Postgraduate students to talk about the influence of gender in their research.  This event is for all Postgraduate students, not just those who are near completion. The aim is to provide a safe, comfortable and open environment for students at all stages of their PhD or Masters to discuss their ‘research in progress’ and to receive feedback and support from peers. Despite the theme of the event being gender-orientated, this conference is intended to offer the opportunity for any discipline and research student to discuss the impact of gender within their research, not only those whose work specifically focuses on gender.

Call for Applications: Feminist Critical Analysis. Queering Knowledge: Intimacies, Spaces, Affects. Dubrovnik, 25-29 May 2015

Feminist Critical Analysis

Inter-University Center (IUC), Dubrovnik
May 25th to May 29th, 2015

 

Call for Applications

The Center for Gender and Politics of the Belgrade University - Faculty of Political Sciences, The Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, The Program in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Washington University in St Louis are pleased to announce the next annual postgraduate course in

 

 

Feminist Critical Analysis

Queering Knowledge: Intimacies, Spaces, Affects

 

Topic


Following Jack Halberstam’s notion of queer, not as a particular body-centered identity position, but as a relational positionality, this year’s course in Feminist Critical Analysis seeks interdisciplinary approaches that examine the possibility of queer concepts of knowledge and queer paradigms of knowledge production and circulation. In particular, we are interested in discussing the ways in which different normative orders are reflected in the power/knowledge paradigms that produce “queer subjects” with “strange temporalities, imaginative life schedules, and eccentric economics”. We will consider alternative modes of intimacy, alliances, forms of embodiment, and representation and how these can contribute to a new understanding of knowledge production and transmission, with very concrete ethical implications and, more importantly, political potential. Is there such a thing as “queer knowledge” at all? Following Lacan, one of the questions we intend to pose would be - is the true desire for knowledge always paranoid, i.e. a desire not to know, as it necessarily confronts the Real? Can there be power in ignorance, as Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick notes in Epistemology of the Closet?

 

In 2015, the annual course Feminist Critical Analysis will examine these recent theoretical moves and consider their consequences for feminist scholarship and activism. We encourage active participation and debates that will bring together disciplines from across the humanities, social sciences, art, political theory, cultural studies, philosophy, etc.

          

 

The course will be held at the Inter-University Centre, Dubrovnik (www.iuc.hr) from May 25th to May 29th(2015).

 

The course is co-directed by Professor Dasa Duhacek, University of Belgrade, Professor Ethel Brooks, Rutgers University and Distinguished Professor Linda Nicholson, Washington University.

 

The course is built on the intellectual dialogue among a diverse body of scholars from different geographical locations and the participating faculty is drawn from different universities.
