7-8 July 2020, University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa
Histories of social movements in the Global South remain dominated by visions and achievements of male activists. Building on current historiographical trends towards transnational histories of women, gender, and feminist activism, this conference seeks to bring together historians and feminist scholars concerned with feminism and socialm movements in the Global South, but particularly across sub-Saharan Africa. Proposals based upon historical and interdisciplinary scholarship about feminism, women and social movements – broadly conceived – from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century will be welcomed.
Proposals due 15 December 2019
