March 27 2010


Saturday morning will be dedicated to exploring the history of Gender Studies at The New School and beyond. Panelists will discuss the problems of continuity/discontinuity across feminist generations. What turns have we taken, and how do we assess those now? Part of this session will be an exploration of what histories we want to claim. We will revisit critiques that have been made of the Gender Studies undertaking and offer some responses. This panel will also provide a space for discussion about progressive traditions at The New School and what they do and do not include. Is the history of The New School a weight on innovative gender, queer and race theory or does it provide something unique and inspirational?
