*** We generally overbook to ensure a full house. Please arrive early to guarantee seating, or check in for a later panel as people often do not attend for the full day. ***

The main objective of this participatory conference is to provide a platform for feminist scholars and activists to engage in a meaningful dialogue about their struggles from their positions at the forefront of contemporary debates on democracy, economic, cultural and racial justice. By inviting scholars and activists who bridge Latin American, Africana, Native American, Latino, Cultural and Women’s and Gender Studies, the conference highlights diversity, encouraging the possibilities of learning from one another. While feminist conferences and meetings tend to focus on particular issues (i.e., Indigenous Feminisms, Black Feminisms, Feminist Activism), our conference emphasizes the necessity of creating spaces for connections and intercultural dialogues.

To enrich the learning process and construct common strategies to fight for justice and democracy, we have developed an alternative format to privilege communication among participants. Instead of panels that privilege an expertise of invited speakers, the Feminist Constellations conference is organized around “Discussion Groups” moderated by keynote speakers. Participation and dialogue amongst conference participants is emphasized in the format, subverting academic institutionalization and elitism by offering paths to bridge – rather than deepen – the stance of feminisms as critique.

Discussion Groups will be composed of feminist scholars and activists who respond to our “Call for Ideas” rather than a “Call for Papers.” The conference is attached to an incipient project for a Working Group on Feminisms in the Americas, sponsored by NYU’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, as a way of furthering the dialogues initiated with the conference. The possibilities for further dialogue may also take the format of a blog to provide a space for sharing, problem solving and communication amongst the constellations of feminists throughout the Americas.
