The 2021 Rural Women’s Studies Triennial Conference CFP deadline is approaching. “Kitchen Table Talk to Global Forum,” originally planned to take place at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, it is now virtual due to ongoing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The theme “Kitchen Table Talk to Global Forum” emphasizes how conversations, relationships, and food shape rural communities. This theme allows for the consideration of the ways that gendered, sexual, ethnic, and racial identities affect personal power, class consciousness, individual choice, and community development. These subjects lend themselves to the exploration of rural activism, social justice, innovation, politics, business development, cultural expression, self-governance, and collective experiences — both historical and contemporary — in local, regional, national, and global settings.
The new conference dates and call for papers due by Sept. 30, 2020 are available here.
