Symposium: Lilith - A Feminist History Journal

Location: Monash University

Date: Friday 8 November, 2019

Feminist thought and feminist movements are in a state of constant evolution and contestation. The recent global rise of conservatism and authoritarian populism has been met with renewed and vocal opposition to the patriarchy, evident in the popularity of women’s marches and the strength of the #MeToo movement. Masculinity has come under increasing critical scrutiny in this changed socio-political context, but what of its gendered, relational opposite, ‘femininity’? How can the history of the broad and diverse movements known as ‘feminism’ frame understandings of our political present?

Submissions (consisting of a 200 word abstract and 150 word bio) should be emailed to by 4 October 2019. You can find more details about the Symposium and register to attend here.
