17-19 November 2005, Duke University

Feminists Theorizing Differences, Hegemonies and Diasporic Formations

How might diaspora studies and transnational feminism be placed in
productive dialogue?

In what way is gender central to the production of diaspora?

How might we see diasporas as differentiated spaces - by time, place,
class and generation?

How might racial formation be seen as central to the project of feminist

transnational critique into an extended conversation with scholarship on
the African Diaspora to think critically about some of the various
"hegemonies" that have shaped these fields. Focusing on questions of
intra-diasporic linkages, unequal circulations and configurations of
culture, power, and politics, the conference aims to formulate a
gendered transnational analysis of the relations of Diaspora that rethinks
implications of globalization in generative and dynamic ways.
