Feminist Activists & Scholars of the North Atlantic Inaugural Meeting


  • University of Southern Maine Milk Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

I was invited by the University of Southern Maine's Women and Gender Studies department to the inaugural meeting of the Feminist Activists and Scholars of the North Atlantic (FASONA) network. I joined colleagues from across the North Atlantic to discuss the position of women, gender and feminist studies in the academy. We shared our research, ways of working in the academy and how we link them with our activist and community engagements. We discussed and planned ways in which to promote interdisciplinary, intersectional feminist scholarship, activism and collaboration. We are now currently developing the FASONA network.
