‘Where is feminism now?’ zine calling for submissions

// 20 August 2008

I’m not sure I ‘get’ the title of this conference at the University of Aberdeen: Ending International Feminist Futures? I know it’s an academic event, but still – or perhaps I’m being a bit dense?!

However, the conference itself looks interesting, including topics such as:

women in Hamas

a feminist critique of “peacekeeping”

feminist performances, masculine performances (although, again, the subheading is a bit baffling! “Women Staging Gender as Big Daddy Indian feminism and the politics of memory”)

“the role of heteronormativity in ’young women’s’ relationships with ‘feminism Male escorts, commercial sex, international political economy ”

Even more interesting, and much less baffling, is this invitation to participate in a collaborative zine to feed into the event:
