Igniting Feminism: Theory <=> Action

The focus of this conference is to re-ignite our collective visions and actions within the feminist movement, both in the academy and beyond. In order to build more connections, allies, and conversations in this endeavor, there are three related but distinct tracks for the conference: 1) gender & violence; 2) teaching for social justice; and 3) queer theory & activism. Each track offers space for exploring feminist/queer theory and practice; by bringing them together, they point us towards new feminist and queer alliances for socially just change.

In order to deepen the dialogue at the conference, we encourage faculty and students plus WRC staff, QRC staff, and other student affairs professionals to register. We hope all will attend!

Registration is $15 for graduate students, and free for undergraduate students!  Visit the conference website to register!
