The 2006 NWSA 27th Annual Conference will take place in Oakland, California from June 15-18, 2006. The conference takes “Locating Women’s Studies: Formations of Power and Resistance” as its theme. Rebecca Walker will deliver the keynote address. Co-founder of the Third Wave Foundation and the author of Black, White and Jewish: Autobiography of a Shifting Self as well as To Be Real: Telling the Truth and Changing the Face of Feminism, Walker lectures frequently across the US.
NWSA invites papers that examine women’s studies education, scholarship, service, and activism wherever they occur, whether in Research I institutions, comprehensive or liberal arts campuses, community colleges, K-12 schools, women’s centers, research institutes, community organizations, or via independent scholarship and creative works. The Association also invites papers that examine locations in terms of power, including the relations among academic sites, communities, regions, nations, local sites, global settings, and identity groups.
The proposal submission deadline is November 1, 2005. To download the CFP and for complete conference details, visit www.nwsaconference.org
