Voices and Choices: intersecting global feminisms
A postgraduate conference
16-17 November, 2018
Ulster University, Belfast
ABOUT THE EVENT
In a year which marks the centenary of partial women’s suffrage, the 20 year anniversary of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement, and strides towards reproductive justice across the island of Ireland ‘Voices and Choices; intersecting global feminisms’ asks how can feminist and gender studies academics explore the position of marginalised groups in relation to representation and autonomy not only locally but globally?
This conference seeks to make space for the discussion of the local, the global, and the intersecting layers. Themes spanning the low levels of representation of women and marginalised groups in decision making positions, to the restriction of reproductive justice, to the many forgotten feminist Herstories, experienced in Ireland North and South and paralleled in countless localities the world
over will be considered through various feminist lenses.
16-17 November 2018
Conference schedule will be shared here soon.
