Conference to be held St. Mary’s University College, Twickenham on 26 - 27 April 2013. A full programme and registration details can be found on the Freedom, Rights and Power webpage.
This two-day multidisciplinary conference seeks to explore the intersection between gender, revolt and power across the Americas. Women have been central in stretching the definitions of legal rights, challenging old concepts of power, and establishing new parameters of freedom across the Americas throughout the twentieth century. Our conference seeks to create links between historical, regional and current movements for change, and to capitalize on a new momentum that has emerged in relation to discourses of gender and power. We encourage scholars and delegates to think anew about the ways that women have challenged prevailing systems, to examine women’s efforts to renegotiate power paradigms and to consider how the past informs the future as we extend our concepts of freedom within the context of the whole continent.
