Travelling between the Centre and Periphery: Creating a Feminist Dialogue for the Diaspora
Keynote: Professor Miriam Cooke (Duke University): “Women and the Arab Spring”
The full programme and abstracts are now online for this one-day conference at the University of Warwick on Friday 11th July 2014, including details of Professor Miriam Cooke’s keynote on “Women and the Arab Spring”.
This one-day symposium seeks to develop discussions of centre-periphery frameworks through a focus on feminism in travel narratives, examining how centre-periphery discourses are complicated, challenged, subverted or reinforced through gendered accounts of migration, ethnicity, identity conflicts and political connections. The symposium will explore how migration and diaspora formations are gendered to develop a centre-periphery narrative which juxtaposes traditional and conventional discourses often associated with the marginalised experience.
Registration is £15 standard (£10 student/Warwick staff) and details of how to register are on the website.
