We did it! So to Speak will be hosting our very own panel at next year’s AWP conference in Chicago! Entitled Troubling the Label: When does a text become feminist, our panelists Arielle Greenberg, Cate Marvin, Amal Amireh, Eloise Klein Healy, and Ru Freeman will explore the significance of labeling and the issues implicated with labeling, writing, and publishing socially conscious work. Here is the event description:
From conception to critique, what is the significance of when the “feminist” label is applied? Does it matter who applies it? How do we interpret works of literature through a contemporary feminist context? So to Speak: a Feminist Journal of Language and Art brings together writers, publishers and academics to discuss the stage at which a work is labeled feminist and the issues implicated with labeling, writing, and publishing socially conscious work.
We look forward to hearing your comments and questions and to the discussion soon to be had! Check back for more details!
