Fourteenth Annual Feminist Theory Workshop
The Program in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies at Duke University hosts an annual Feminist Theory Workshop-a two-day event featuring keynote lectures and working seminars. The workshops are held in March at Duke University.
The Feminist Theory Workshop (FTW), which began in 2007, are organized pedagogically to promote intense study, featuring both keynote lectures by internationally known scholars and small working seminars for participants. The event is free; however, registration is required.
The Feminist Theory Workshop 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 work-shop 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.
