Organisational unit: Research Grouping
In the last few years there has been renewed emphasis on feminism’s academic and cultural importance. This cluster aims to develop new approaches to the study of global feminisms—as 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 women’s lives, narratives, histories and political aims today. The study of global feminisms in an interdisciplinary context will not only reveal the importance of feminism—in theory and practice—as 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 women’s history.
