2014 NWSA Annual Conference: Feminist Transgressions
November 13-16, 2014 • San Juan, Puerto Rico

NWSA’s 2014 conference theme, Feminist Transgressions, endeavors to take up the histories, geographies, affective dimensions, and political stakes of various feminist insubordinations in the spaces they occupy: intellectual and institutional, local and global, public and intimate, by choice and under duress. Mobilizing the multivalent concept of transgression helps reframe interrogations and impositions into those locations where we labor, love, defy, resist, protest, play, create, and/or celebrate.

Keynote Address: bell hooks
Dr. bell hooks is a noted cultural critic, commentator, and feminist, is Distinguished Professor in Residence in Appalachian Studies at Berea College.
