Our Space, Our Place: Creating Ecofeminism

Glasgow Women’s Library

Saturday 30th March 2019 10am-4pm


Global ecological activism is built on the work of women. Yet the value of women’s environmental campaigning and action often remains invisible.


Our Space, Our Place: Creating Ecofeminism, a partnership between researchers at universities across Scotland and Glasgow Women’s Library, calls together ecofeminist academics, environmental campaigners, writers, artists, community workers and performers for a day of papers, performances and workshops, exploring how ecofeminist theory and practice can unite to imagine and realise optimistic responses to our changing world.


Our aim is to share and discuss the diverse and daring work being done by women around environmental themes, including academic research, creative explorations and in participation with communities.


Invitation for proposals:

We invite proposals for 20-minute contributions from women with an interest in researching, understanding and describing women and ecology, women and the land and ecofeminism. We welcome proposals for academic papers in language accessible to the non-expert, performances, monologues, readings, presentations, workshops, demonstrations, film showings and any other original, interactive suggestions.
