Announcing 2017-18 Feminist Research Seminars
Established in 2014, IRWG Feminist Research Seminars are small, themed residential conferences bringing together a small group of scholars to address quandaries in theoretical or empirical research related to gender, women and sexuality. Feminist Research Seminars are awarded annually through a national application process, offering small groups of feminist scholars from around the country the opportunity to work together in an intimate and supportive setting in Ann Arbor for several days. Past FRS themes have included: postcolonial feminist science studies, disability and environmental activism, and feminist filmmaking. IRWG Feminist Research Seminars are also designed to encourage connections for future collaboration among participants.
We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017-18 Feminist Research Seminars. The next call for proposals will be announced in Fall 2017.
