SEWSA 2014 provides a forum to analyze, discuss, and represent diverse histories, theories, and actions that revisit and reexamine feminisms. The conference invites conversations surrounding The Ebb and Flow: Navigating the Changing Landscapes of Feminism that are transformative in the interdisciplinary study of women, gender, and sexuality. The conference will foster a vigorous, open and inclusive dialogue about different avenues to change and transformation. Reflections on changes in feminisms, and all forms of political action, from rage to compromise, will be considered. All disciplines and levels of scholarship are welcome.

Registration includes access to all sessions, keynotes, performances, receptions, Friday lunchbox, and Saturday SEWSA luncheon. While covered by the registration fee, both lunches require tickets. Please indicate attendance at all catered events when registering for the conference.
