>   invitation for proposals on interdisciplinary scholarly and  creative work
>   Womenís Studies as a discipline is going on 
>forty, prompting debate about where the 
>discipline has come from, where it is at the 
>turn of the century, and where it is going. 
>This conference will be a part of that process. 
>We are specifically interested in using the 
>metaphor of familyóinformed by histories and the 
>intersectionality of race, class, gender, 
>sexuality, and nationóto explore and explain and 
>document the discipline of womenís studies, to 
>consider how we have been written by/written 
>ourselves into this family drama, and to reflect 
>on the impact those decisions have had on 
>feminist & womanist movements inside and outside 
>of the university, locally and globally. 
>Conference sessions will juxtapose cultural, 
>generational, and geographic perspectives in 
>order to create a living text of feminist 
>cultures, histories, and representations.  The 
>Conference Committee invites academics, 
>feminists, and activists from all disciplines, 
>institutions, and organizations to
>  submit proposals for ìGlobal and Local Womenís Studies: Going on Forty.î
