This year’s conference addresses the theme: “Continuities and Contradictions.” This theme builds on the first two conference themes “An Interdisciplinary Conversation” and “Communicating Alongside | Across | Against” by taking up the notion that often as academics, activists, and people interested in feminisms, womanism, equity and justice, we must come together from very different frameworks of experience and belief to work toward our goals. To do this work, it is often essential that we hold many – often different, contradictory, or even paradoxical – ideas and truths in our hands, hearts, and minds simultaneously. Thus, we must navigate our continuities and contradictions, here and now.
We have some exciting additions to this year’s conference including a community group networking session and a performance based keynote event. Both additions have us over-the-moon with excitement. More details will be coming soon so check back often and don’t forget to follow us on our Facebook page (facebook.com/FeminismsHereandNow) and on Twitter (@FHNconference).
We look forward to seeing you at the conference later this Fall,
Ashley Mattheis, PhD. Candidate, Dept. of Communication and FHN Co-Chair
Sherah Faulkner, PhD. Student, Dept. of Geography and FHN Co-Chair
