BU Women's, Gender & Sexuality Conference

FREE conference. Looks great!

"Despite its immense achievements, the women’s liberation movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s has been minimally documented in print or on film. In recent years, however, celebrations of the movement’s accomplishments have proliferated and new films have revived interest in this revolutionary period. It seems timely therefore to bring together activists, scholars, artists, writers, and filmmakers to reflect on the movement: its accomplishments in so many domains, its unfinished business, and its relevance to contemporary work that is advancing women. The conference will engage with political, intellectual, artistic, literary, legal, and personal elements of the movement, and especially with the ways in which these elements intertwined and often reinforced each other. Films of and about the movement will be screened and a signature play of the period will be performed. Linda Gordon, University Professor of the Humanities and Florence Kelley Professor of History at New York University, will deliver the conference keynote address."

    The registration fees vary based on status (student, etc), but they won't turn anyone away based ability to pay.

    Please note this conference is not free. It is $65. Prices are listed on the registration page. I have registered but just want to make sure everyone is aware of the cost.

    I know this a ways away, but how would people feel about meeting up before/after sessions to discuss and get to know each other?

      I think that's a great idea! I think maybe you should post in the comments section where you'd like people to meet you before or after a particular session closer to the date and then if people are interested in meeting up then they know where to find you.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
