Resistance and Reimagination: Gender, Change, and The Arts

April 8 - April 10

April 8-10, 2021
Virtual Event | Free and Open to the Public

Co-Convened by
The UW System Women’s and Gender Studies Consortium
and
UW-Madison’s 4W Initiative: Women & Wellbeing in Wisconsin & the World

Join us April 8-10, 2021 for a fully virtual conference focused on the integration of the arts into our work as a path toward knowing, resistance, and imagination. This year’s theme encourages a feminist lens to argue against a separation amongst art, politics, activism, and epistemology. With the help of the arts, we can envision how to deconstruct, decolonize, and reimagine life and society. Creative work can be seen as an end in itself and as a feminist tool of inquiry, knowledge production, and critical resistance.

This year we will feature virtual posters, art exhibits, and roundtables discussions that consider the arts as a site of inquiry, pedagogical practice, methodology, activism, exploration, and social transformation. Our keynotes and plenaries similarly include conversations with scholars, students, activists, artists, civil society leaders, and community members who consider the arts as a site of inquiry, pedagogical practice, methodology, activism, exploration, and social transformation.

This conference is completely free and open to the public. See here for registration information.
