Interdisciplinarity in Feminist State Theory: A Symposium

February 2009

What varied disciplinary legacies inform contemporary feminist scholarship on the state? What contributions does feminist state theory, as an interdisciplinary site, offer to more conventionally disciplined theories of state? How do feminist theorizations of security, sovereignty and welfare overlap or differ across national locations?

These questions are at the heart of this symposium organized by the Women & Gender Studies Institute.
