From: Irene Stuber


The Center for Women in Coalition at the University of California, Riverside is organizing a conference, "Frontline Feminisms: Women, War, and Resistance" to take place on campus January 16-18, 1997. Participants will discuss the forging of new feminisms in the context of militarized situations around the world. The conference aims to link feminist activist and grass-roots organizers engaged in innovative feminist praxes with a gathering of scholars and policy-makers engaged in theorizing conflict and promoting cooperation.

Featured participants will include women from the Balkans, the Middle East, Central America, South Asia, the Philippines, Africa, and the United States.

Workshop and paper proposals are due August 1, after which the planning will become more inclusively collaborative. All scholars and activists interested in attending are invited to send their mail ng and/or e-mail addresses to the organizers for inclusion on the mailing list.

Conference registration will be $30 and modestly-priced lodging will be available. (Registration and lodging can be waived in case of need.)
