Global Feminisms

Organisational unit: Research Grouping

Organisation profile

In the last few years there has been renewed emphasis on feminisms academic and cultural importance. This cluster aims to develop new approaches to the study of global feminismsas modes of research, scholarship, political commitment, pedagogy and artistic production. Thinking about the different ways that race, sexuality, class, nation and war, for example, change how feminism is constituted and practised, this cluster will illuminate new connections and divergences, in order to advance current understanding of womens lives, narratives, histories and political aims today. The study of global feminisms in an interdisciplinary context will not only reveal the importance of feminismin theory and practiceas a vital organizing tool for the study of women and gender, both inside and outside the academy; it will also help to forge the kinds of collective response often found at the heart of significant events in womens history.
