Building Interdisciplinary and Transregional Alliances

Transnational feminist works have long complicated disciplinary and area studies approaches, yet our scholarship largely circulates along disciplinary and regional lines. Is this a reflection of institutional priorities and constraints—where funding, publishing, and promotions continue to be centered in departments and area studies centers? Are discussions that cross-cut these lines important, and if so, how might they be fostered, especially in the current climate of cutbacks?

Panelists include Bianca Williams, Sima Shakhsari, Netta van Vliet, and Neetu Khanna. Moderated by Deborah A. Thomas.

This panel was part of The Scholar & Feminist Conference XXXIX – Locations of Learning: Transnational Feminist Practices.
