Translating feminism: transfer, transgression, transformation (c. 1960-90)

This project will bring together academics from three continents to pursue original, interdisciplinary research on the global reach of feminist writing and women’s movements. The transformation of women’s social status is one of the most important global developments of the post-war period, yet little is known of how women’s rights campaigners and thinkers in different national and cultural settings communicated with one another, read and translated each other’s texts, and, locally, redefined and adapted ideas travelling the world. The network will discuss historical findings and theoretical approaches at three workshops and an international conference, with subsequent dissemination through academic publications and an interactive website.
