Transnational Feminisms Summer Institute
July 6-11, 2014
The Ohio State University
Thinking Transnational Feminisms, is a collaborative five-day summer institute organized by and for feminist scholars who are engaging the transnational as a process, a critique, a paradigm, and/or a characteristic of social movement in their scholarship to make sense of these multiple, sometimes contradictory, approaches and concepts. We invite graduate students, emerging, and established scholars to join us in exploring and sharpening our understanding of where the field of “transnational feminisms” is and where it is going by sharing and critiquing each others’ work in progress. We especially invite non-U.S. based scholars to participate in this institute to contribute to the work of decentering U.S. academic practices in thinking through transnational feminist knowledge production and engagements.
The institute will feature two types of sessions:
1. Paper workshops that help authors refine their research and writing and advance our collective understanding of transnational feminism. We envision limiting these sessions to 24 authors to facilitate in depth engagement among all institute participants.
2. Roundtables that tackle “big” issues in transnational feminism.
