"Transnational Feminism" is an important thematic focus of Gender Studies. How feminists can connect and cooperate transnationally has always been a difficult question to answer. Although feminist historiography often emphasizes its Western emergence, feminisms from the African continent, the Asian region, and the Americas have demonstrated the value of situated knowledges for productive engagements. The session on June 9 is dedicated to the opportunities, potentials and limitations afforded by transnational feminisms.

Dr. Céline Barry, Prof. Dr. Alica Decker and Dr. Christine Vogt-William will discuss the current significance of transnational feminism with a view to locating its current relevance in generating visions for 21st century invested in a greater consciousness of justice.
