Moscone Center West–Room 2002

Despite more than four decades of feminist, anti-racist, queer, and other insurgent scholarship, the work and the scholars who produce it still face many barriers in the academy. This strategy and action workshop will focus on developing a plan of action for overcoming these barriers. The morning session will feature a panel that will discuss barriers to and strategies for promoting and disseminating paradigm-shifting intellectual projects in the academy. In the afternoon, participants will work on developing concrete proposals for collective action that can be implemented within the AAR and our home institutions.

The cost of the workshop is $50, which includes the entire day of sessions and a continental breakfast (lunch will be on your own). Registration is limited to the first 80 participants. To sign up for the workshop, log back into the online Annual Meeting registration system and add the workshop or fax in this form to +1-404-727-7959. We do not want anyone to be prevented from attending the workshop due to cost. If you need a subsidy, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
