Tentatively titled “States of Emergence/y: Making Feminist Sense of U.S. Foreign Policy since 9/11,” this panel seeks (1) to interrogate the myriad ways in which the U.S. state has responded to recent global crises, whether humanitarian, environmental, financial and/or political, through the explicit deployment and reinterpretation of feminist politics, (2) to make visible the means by which discourses of “crisis” are created and mobilized in U.S. foreign policy (broadly conceived), and (3) to theorize best practices for negotiating these hegemonic discourses in feminist teaching and scholarship.
The organizer welcomes NWSA members (or those scholars and graduate students who will join this organization prior to the event) from a variety of academic locations who are interested in presenting a paper using feminist intersectional, transnational, and/or historically-contextualized perspectives. Topics could include (but are certainly not limited to): Native/indigenous studies, policy analysis, feminist activisms, migration and diasporas, globalization and militarism, and pedagogical practices.
This panel is explicitly connected to the conference subthemes, “The Politics of Crisis” and “Deploying Feminisms,” and will be positioned that way in the proposal process.
Please submit a 50-100 word abstract by February 1st to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be specific not only about your paper’s connection to the proposed panel topic, but also about how your research is grounded in texts, authors, or research relevant to contemporary feminist/critical/interdisciplinary scholarship.
