I am a doctoral candidate who has just returned from Nigeria doing research on women's activism during the nationalist era.  My areas of concentration are history and women's studies, context specific gender theory, and also transnational women's movements.  
 
I am excited to begin this workshop because one of the most pressing questions I have as a self defined feminist scholar is how to adhere to feminist principles in the research process without superimposing those personal feminist views on the research.  I am interested in having this conversation as well as to see how others have defined their feminist methodology.

I'm a doctoral student in Gender and Women's Studies. This is my first digital workshop, and I'm excited to get to see people's writings and work with them on diverse projects.

Both my research and activism are focused on violence against women. 

Looking forward to getting to know y'all more this week~

Hi all,

I currently teach in the Department of Women's Studies at Texas Woman's University. My research explores the formation of feminism as a collective identity in feminist newsletters and newspapers published during the 1970s. I'm hoping to get feedback on a paper that explores the articulation of a feminist political subject in the periodical Country Women.This is my first time participating in this workshop.

I am Vivienne Bozalek and am interested in issues of social justice and critical and political ethics of care and other relational ontologies. I have recently become interested in new feminist materialisms, especially the work of Karen Barad and how that work intersects with political care ethicists such as Joan Tronto, Selma Sevenhuijsen and Fiona Williams. I have attempted to look at these intersections in the piece that I have posted for this week.

I am looking forward to this upcoming week in terms of research and getting ot know all you fantastic and empowered like-minded feminists.

Hey everyone!

I am SO excited to a part of this. I am brand new to HASTAC and this digital workshop. Currently, I am a lecturer of compostion and rhetoric at Appalachian State University. Usually the second year class, Writing Across the Curriculum, fills my semester, but I also have the privilege of teaching a third year business writing course too. 

My area of interest is invitational rhetoric, argument, feminism, and Latin American identity. My main focus with invitational rhetoric is to provide young speakers/writers with a new framework when dealing with conflict or entering a controversial discussion particularly "feminist" conversations. I am particularly excited to share this with you all because I will actually be giving a two part lecture series at a local community center where I live. So I am hoping to get some good feedback from my peers to see what sticks and what doesn't. 

I do want to give a special shout out to Lori Beth DeHertogh. She has been a wonderful mentor, supporter, and friend through out my early career. I really appreciate her tenacity and vision. 

Have fun everyone!

Hi this is the fourth time I have tried to add an introduction and if it doesn't work this time I am giving up! I have done these workshops before and found them valuable that is why I am back again. I look forward to engaging with everyone.

I work at a higher education institution in Cape Town, South Africa and am interested in issues of social justice and the political ethics of care and more recently in new feminist materialisms

Hi Everyone!

This is my first time participation in this workshop and I am so glad that I am FB friends with one of the organizers, otherwise I wouldn't have known about it! I am currently a PhD candidate in an Urban Adult and Higher Education Leadership program.  My field of specialization is higher education, and my research broadly explores the the nexus between higher education contexts and adult identity development.  I am also a women's studies minor and I specifically focus on the experiences of women in their social roles as mothers along identity dimensions of race, gender and class.  I am in the data collection phase of my dissertation which explores the experiences of Black/African American mothers in doctoral study. I am also a parent, so much of my energies have been directed toward the dissertation with little time to focus on preparing papers for publication.  What I hope to gain from this workshop is some feedback on a paper that I have been working on over the last year. 

I am excited to be apart of this workshop!
