Editors of feminist journal to be featured during campus conference

RELEASED: April 5, 2011

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host "'Feminist Teacher' on Location: a Mini-Conference" April 14-16.

The miniature professional conference will give UW-Eau Claire faculty and students the chance to meet with five of the editors of Feminist Teacher, a journal of the practices, theories and scholarship of feminist teaching. The journal has been a forum for discussion for many educational issues within a feminist context for more than 25 years.

The editors visiting campus are Monica Barron, book review editor and general editor of Feminist Teacher; Gail Cohee, director of the Sarah Doyle Women's Center at Brown University; Wendy Gunther-Canada, professor of government at the University of Alabama at Birmingham; and Heather Laine Talley, assistant professor of sociology at Western Carolina University.

The three-day event will begin with a pre-conference session April 14 and conclude April 16 with concurrent working group sessions. The breakout session discussions will be: "Sustainable Revolution through Radical Self-Care," "Feminism and Political Science" and "Greening Adrienne Rich's 'Politics of Location.'"

More information about the event, including editor biographies and the complete conference schedule, may be found online. To register, contact Dr. Theresa Kemp, interim coordinator for women's studies, at tkemp@uwec.edu or 715-836-5717.
