The Feminist Theory Workshop (FTW), which is now in its sixteenth year, offers a unique opportunity for scholars to engage in sustained dialogue about feminist theory as a scholarly domain of inquiry. The workshop will be held March 22-23, 2024 at Duke University in Durham, NC.  The “workshop” approach of this conference requires active participation of both presenters and attendees. The FTW consists of seminars led by visiting scholars, keynote lectures, and roundtable discussions. Our keynote speakers for 2024 are Grace Kyungwon Hong, Professor of Gender Studies at UCLA; Julie Livingston, Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and History at New York University; Jasbir Puar, Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Rutgers University; and Kevin E Quashie, Professor of English at Brown University; in addition to special guests who will serve on the closing roundtable.

The Feminist Theory Workshop (FTW) hosts participants from institutions all over the globe, as these diverse voices continue to be crucial to the workshop’s drive to understand feminist theory across both disciplinary and national boundaries. We are offering awards of up to $1,500 to enable the participation of post-graduate and post-doctoral emerging scholars from outside the United States. The awards are to fund the travel expenses of scholars coming from institutions outside the US to attend the workshop. NO payment of any funds will be made to any individual. Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies (GSF) will make direct payments to the contracted travel agent for the approved travel expenses. The FTW provides some meals at the conference and there are NO registration fees to attend. Attendees are responsible for their own lodging and additional transportation arrangements.
