Subject: Three International Task Force Roundtables at NWSA 2001


> I: INTERNATIONALIZING WOMENıS STUDIES AND GENDER STUDIES CURRICULA
>
> The International Task Force (ITF) of NWSA is organizing a roundtable
> discussion on "Internationalizing Womenıs Studies and Gender Studies
> Curricula" at NWSA 2001 (June 13-17, 2001, Minneapolis, MN).  In the last
> few decades, syllabi and curricula have become a major force in defining
> and contesting fields of study.  In Womenıs Studies and in Gender Studies,
> the political aspect of syllabi > implicitly, how they are taught > the
multiplicity but also of the intersections of feminisms and womanisms:
> African, American, Asian, European, etc.  In the backdrop to our
individual
> choices of syllabi are questions about how we represent nation, gender,
> sexuality, community, and other ideologies.  For example, what should a
> "History of Feminisms" course include?  What are the reasons for separate
> syllabi on Indian or Caribbean women?  How inclusive is a course on "Third
> World Women"?  The roundtable on this topic, sponsored by the
International
> Task Force, calls for papers that focus on the impact of old and new
> curricula on our conceptions of Womenıs Studies and Gender Studies.
Papers
> for this roundtable should be short enough to encourage audience
> participation.  Please send proposals by NOVEMBER 1, 2000 to SONITA SARKER
> ([log in to unmask]).

> II: WOMEN IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY
>
> The International Task Force (ITF) of NWSA is organizing a roundtable on
> "Women in the Global Economy" at NWSA 2001 (June 13-17, 2001, Minneapolis,
> MN).  In this roundtable discussion,  ITF seeks participants who can
> discuss the gender implications of economic and cultural globalization.
> We encourage participation of activists and scholars who are involved in
> local, indigenous struggles and who can shed light on global political
> developments, eg. in light of Seattle1999, the Beijing Plus Five
> conference, NYC 2000, or the upcoming UN  conference on racism in South
> Africa 2001.  Possible discussion points are the following questions: How
> are women organizing in the formal and informal sector?  How are war and
> peace part of the global economy?  What are some noteworthy alliances
> across national borders, e.g. with respect to unionization, co-operative
> movements, anti-sweatshop and/or sex workers' rights campaigns?
> Presentations for this roundtable should be short enough to allow for
> dialogue and discussion.  Please send presentation proposals by e-mail
> ([log in to unmask]) to SONITA SARKER, by NOVEMBER 1, 2000.

> III: TERMINOLOGIES AND THEIR TRANSFORMATIONS
>
> The International Task Force (ITF) of NWSA is organizing a roundtable
> discussion on "Walking the Talk:  A Discussion of Activism and Academic
> Terminology in Transnational Feminist Studies" at NWSA 2001 (June 13-17,
> 2001, Minneapolis, MN).  In light of the considerable recent growth in
> transnational feminist studies, the ITF seeks participants who can detail
> and expand upon the recent practices and theorizations of
transnationalism,
> globalism, and internationalism.  How do we distinguish between these
terms
> in feminist activism and in the academy?  We welcome participants who will
> relate structural processes and struggles to subjectivities, analyzing the
> importance, especially for decolonizing or anti-imperialist feminisms, of
> distinguishing between, for example, national, diasporic, exilic,
> cosmopolitan, and immigrant identities.  Presentations for this roundtable
> should encourage and be short enough to allow for discussion.  Please send
> presentation proposals by e-mail to PAMELA THOMA ([log in to unmask]) OR
> SONITA SARKER ([log in to unmask]) by NOVEMBER 1, 2000.
