Feminisms in Transnational Perspective

The Zagreb Centre for Women’s Studies in collaboration with four institutions’ are pleased to announce the fifth postgraduate course on Feminisms in Transnational Perspective. This year’s theme is Women narrating their lives and actions. The intellectual impulse for the fifth feminist course in the seminar on Feminisms in transnational perspective (Dubrovnik, 23-27 May, 2011) comes from Hannah Arendt’s statement that „lives without words and action are dead for the world”.

manipulating women’s self-representations…Deadline for proposal submissions: January 20, 2011. Więcej
