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.

More details will be coming soon so check back often and don’t forget to follow us on our Facebook page ( and on Twitter (@FHNconference).

We look forward to seeing you at the conference later this Fall,

Sherah Faulkner, PhD. Student, Dept. of Geography and FHN Co-Chair

Zac Parker, PhD. Candidate, Dept. of Communication and FHN Co-Chair

Feminisms Here and Now: Difficult Attachments is a conference at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, organized by graduate students of UNC’s Departments of Communication and Geography will be held November 22 and 23, 2019.
