Message 2: Feminist conference: Call for papers

Date: Wed, 09 Sep 1998 10:33:59 +0500
From: Sadiqi <sadiqifesnet.net.ma>
Subject: Feminist conference: Call for papers

We are pleased to inform you that the Center for Studies and Research
on Women which is affiliated to the Faculty of Letters and humanities
Dhar El Mehraz, Fes, Morocco, is organizing an international
conference on 8, 9, and 10 April 1999 on the following theme:

FEMINIST MOUVEMENTS: ORIGINS AND ORIENTATIONS

Current academic research on women has acquired a significant place in
the field of knowledge. As a scientific discipline, it has largely
contributed to theoretical elaborations. These elaborations, however,
cannot be fully appreciated except in a framework that enhances the
origins and orientations of feminist movements which have initiated
and developed research studies on women.

Through the theme of this conference we aim to place the problem of
origins and orientations of feminist movements in a context wide but
specific enough to foster a real understanding of these movements at a
universal scale. With this aim in mind, the conference will address
the following issues, related to the historical, cultural, social,
legal and ideological dimensions:

1. the historical and cultural conditions which have crystallised into
feminist movements worldwide;

2. the cultural and civilisational origins which have characterised
these movements since their inception;

3. the nature of interaction between Western feminist movements and
their Arab counterparts;

4. the intellectual orientations behind the evolution of feminist
movements throughout the world.

5. Futurist views on feminist movements


Abstracts may be in English, French or Arabic.Deadline for receiving
abstracts: November 30th, 1998.

The University will pay for board and lodging of the participants.
