Feminist and Women's Studies Association (FWSA) Conference. Everyday Encounters with Violence: Critical Feminist Perspectives

We draw upon a wide definition of violence from sources in the arts, humanities and social sciences, seeing this both as an everyday social force inflicting harm, suffering, grief and trauma and as a transformative force that produces gendered agency, social action and resistance. We will examine
violence as embedded in the very fabric of everyday life via gendered
encounters with for example modernity, neoliberalism, sovereign power,
rule of law, globalization, technology, as well as institutional, popular
and everyday cultures. We foresee a range of different types of sessions
fostered in this conference. In addition to traditional plenary and paper sessions, we are looking to include practitioner panels, performative workshops, talking circles and World Café style interactions between participants.
