13th Annual Feminist Theory Workshop
The Feminist Theory Workshop (FTW), which is in its thirteenth year, offers a unique opportunity for internationally recognized faculty and young scholars to engage in sustained dialogue about feminist theory as a scholarly domain of inquiry. The "workshop" approach of this conference requires active participation of both presenters and attendees. Small seminars allow for focused participant exchange, roundtables synthesize central debates of the weekend, and provocative keynote lectures all bring those who attend the workshop into collaborative conversations. The FTW has quickly become the premier forum for annual discussions of Feminist Theory in the US. We have had to close our registration at 250 in the past few years because of space and financial considerations.
The FTW has proven to be a dynamic site of interdisciplinary exploration between academics across fields and disciplines. Our experience shows us that bringing together disparate voices to tackle common questions yields more rigorous dialogue and a greater scope of solutions because of the variety of our experiences and contexts. The diversity of perspectives that FTW offers stays with many participants once they embark on or continue their research because our scholars encounter ideas and perspectives that can change the course of their research.
