Event Details:

A conference celebrating the Institute for Research on Women and Gender's 30th Anniversary. Presented by current and former scholars of the Institute, this conference will explore how 30 years of feminist scholarship has changed the nature of knowledge in almost all disciplines. The opening plenary focuses on the revolution in knowledge in the East and the West, and the closing plenary addresses the future of feminist scholarship. Five workshops explore such topics as the complexities of veiling in the Mid-East, third- and fourth-gender constructions among Native North American women, the Bio/politics of late motherhood, raising boys in the 21st century, and how feminist scholarship has changed the way we see art.

Speakers include Cynthia Epstein, Shelley Fisher Fishkin, Karen Offen, Marilyn Yalom, Wang Zheng.
