Feminisms Here and Now: Difficult Attachments (Conference)
November 22 @ 8:00 am - November 23 @ 5:00 pm
“Undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows are invited to submit abstracts to the fourth meeting of Feminisms Here and Now, an interdisciplinary conference organized by PhD students in the Departments of Communication and Geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This year’s theme – “Difficult Attachments” – draws from discussions around our three prior themes, “An Interdisciplinary Conversation,” “Alongside | Across | Against,” and “Continuities and Contradictions,” by taking up the complexities of connection, wherever they may lie. Our previous meeting produced a lively conversation around the difficult attachment many of us have to the myth of scarcity, and the limited vision such an attachment can produce. This year’s theme seeks to build upon that insight and broaden its implications by exploring the notions of both difficulty and attachment through various feminist lenses, here and now.”
