About the talk: We will celebrate the International Women’s Day with a roundtable discussion on feminist movement building in a transnational era through open access projects, projects in U.S. and Latin America, and feminist translation.
Locations: This month’s meeting will be held at George Washington University Phillips Hall, Room 411, 801 22nd St, NW, and Towson University Cook Library 404A, Towson, MD 21252. If you would like to join us through phone, please email transfem-1JT3bMlxmMvYtjvyW6yDsg@public.gmane.org for the number and instructions.
About the Network: These are monthly teleconference meetings held on the first Saturdays of each month 10:30-12:00. In each meeting, we will have two presenters talk about a transnational/international women's issue, to learn about the issue and exchange perspectives and strategies on research, service provision, policy, and activism. We want to talk about issues such as women and education, politics, immigration, health, poverty, globalization and more.
Mission: Despite the fact there are many of us who are interested in and work on transnational women's issues as researchers, teachers, librarians, community organizers, service providers, activists, policy makers, journalists, and other professions, we seldom find opportunities to talk to each other, learn from each other, or work together. Our mission is to use technology to develop a sustainable community and network of feminist scholars, activists, community workers, and policy makers working on transnational women's issues, in order to promote transnational awareness of women's issues and develop context-appropriate strategies and actions to better women's lives.
Contact us: If you have further questions, please email us at transfem-bjfSEswcVnc@public.gmane.org
Center for Transnational Women’s Issues aims to promote transnational awareness of women's issues in the community at large through research, arts, education, advocacy, grassroots community work and activism.
Organized by the George Washington University's Women's Studies Program, Women In and Beyond the Global aims to break down barriers between academic and activist knowledge by fueling activist scholarship; encouraging collective reflection on feminist movement-building; and documenting and preserving these activities
through digital media.
