Feminist Collaborations: Intersectional and Transnational Teaching & Learning

Co-editors Isis Nusair and Barbara Shaw are soliciting abstracts for
inclusion in an anthology that focuses on feminist collaborations and the
radical interconnectedness between pedagogy, theory and practice. We seek
cutting edge work that scholars-teachers-activists are engaging with that
goes beyond valuing collaboration abstractly to engaging it and linking
theory to practice in building feminist/women’s/gender/ LGBTQ+ communities.
This project emerges out of three women’s, gender & sexuality curriculum
institutes funded through the Great Lakes College Association (GLCA) and in
which contributors drew on and returned to the work of Richa Nagar,
AnaLouise Keating, Chandra Mohanty, Jacquie Alexander, Ann Russo, and
others to think through feminist-queer collaborations and pedagogies. Our
call for abstracts invites scholars-educators-activists broadly to focus on
the connection between theory and practice in the process of teaching and
learning, and how to develop strategies for doing collaborative work in an
expansive field of study within and across institutional boundaries. The
aim of the anthology is to fill a vacuum in pedagogy especially on how to
teach intersectionality and transnationalism. It will focus on theorizing
pedagogical approaches and providing resources (media and visuals, syllabi
and assignments) for teaching introductory, theory & method, capstone and
special topics courses in an expanding field. This will help in faculty
development and building local, regional, and transnational connections
that imagine its purpose beyond institutionalization and actively
contributes to socio-political change.

Please send 250-300 word abstracts to Barbara Shaw ( bshaw@allegheny.edu )
and Isis Nusair ( nusairi@denison.edu ) by December 20, 2018. Further
inquiries are welcome. Publishers have expressed interest in the volume and
we will be crafting the book proposal based on selected abstracts.
