Feminist theory workshop travel awards 2017: Durham, North Carolina

The Feminist Theory Workshop (FTW), now in its eleventh year, offers a unique opportunity for 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. The FTW consists of seminars led by visiting scholars, keynote lectures, and roundtable discussions. The 2017 FTW will be held March 24-25, 2017 at  Duke University.

The keynote speakers are Amelia Jones, Professor in Art and Design and Vice-Dean of Critical Studies at the USC Roski School of Art and Design;  Christina Crosby, Professor in English and Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Wesleyan University; Katherine McKittrick, Professor in Gender Studies and the Graduate Program in Cultural Studies at Queen’s University; Kathi Weeks, Professor in Gender Sexuality and Feminist Studies at Duke University; in addition to special guests who will serve on the closing roundtable.

FTW International Travel Award:

The FTW hosts participants from institutions all over the globe, as these diverse voices continue to be crucial to the workshop’s drive to understand feminist theory across both disciplinary and national boundaries. They are offering at least five awards of up to $1,000 to enable the participation of post-graduate and post-doctoral emerging scholars from outside the United States. The awards are to fund the travel expenses of scholars coming from institutions outside the US to attend the workshop. NO payment of any funds will be made to any individual.  Women’s Studies will make direct payments for the approved travel expenses. The FTW provides some meals at the conference for participants, and there are NO registration fees to attend. Attendees are responsible for their own lodging and additional transportation arrangements.

Please also note that all recipients of this travel award will be required to submit a brief written report as well as a video report of their experiences at the workshop either before or shortly after they return home. If selected, complete details will be provided in your award letter.
