We are in the midst of dramatic global transformation. National economies are collapsing, Brazil, Russia, India, and China continue to rush forward with massive economic development. The "Arab Spring" and Occupy movements, along with other widespread protests aimed at transforming existing systems of governance, continue to simmer, incomplete. The "war on terror" moves into its 13th year and many citizens are told we remain in permanent states of emergency, with vastly increased surveillance and ever evolving weaponry. Social and political allegiances find new shapes as the internet becomes an ever increasing part of our lives and connections. Through it all, how might transnational feminisms help us to analyze and respond to these transformations?
Panelists include Abigail Boggs, Christine Cynn, Magdalena Grabowska, Maja Horn, and Neha Vora.
