Call for Abstracts

The African Gender Institute is convening a symposium titled ‘Dreaming Feminist Futures’ on the 22nd and 23rd March 2018 at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. The symposium aims to hold intergenerational conversations about feminism(s), decolonisation and Africanity. We will use Pumla Gqola’s journey and work to answer critical questions around black women and their relationship to the academy, feminist writing and visibility on the continent.

The key objectives of the symposium are to: create spaces for emerging and established feminists to share and create interdisciplinary knowledge collectively through conversation and art; initiate intergenerational conversations between emerging and established feminists at the University of Cape Town.

The abstract submission deadline is 29th January, 2018, and invitations to participate will be sent by February  8th, 2018.
