The annual Lilith Symposium is a valuable forum for new and established scholars to present research in feminist history and related areas. Following last year's Symposium on The Future of Feminism, our theme this year is:
A Feminist History Of Violence: History as a Weapon of Liberation?
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
The Gendering of colonial, economic, epistemic, physical, psychological and sexual violence; The Feminisation of Subaltern groups; Globalisation and the Gendering of Poverty; State violence and masculinity; Gender and War; Gender and the War on Civil Liberties; Gender and Technologies of control; Capitalism and sexual violence; Violence and the Body; The new backlash Against Reproductive Choice; Violence and Class Privilege; Women's Resistance to Violence.
We welcome proposals, from both new and established scholars, for 20 minute papers relating to the above theme in some way. Papers presented at the Symposium may be considered for publication In the
2007 edition of Lilith.
