Schedule and Location: Wednesday, May 28 5:00pm-6:30pm Vallee-300
We are pleased to announce the formation of the Feminist Studies Research Cluster in the Canadian Sociological Association.
The research cluster provides an institutional base within the CSA to develop feminist research within sociology. In addition to working with feminist sociologists, we also plan to work with other clusters within sociology on shared interests and to reach out to feminist scholars working in related fields and disciplines.
This year the organizers have worked with feminists (including non-sociologists) in six other associations and research institutes to co-sponsor four interdisciplinary sessions at Congress, 2014. Three will be hosted by Sociology and one by Social Work Education. We welcome you to these sessions on May 27 (one in Social Work Education – 3:30pm to 5:00pm in Thistle 259) and May 28 (three in Sociology – 9:00am to 10:30am, 1:45pm to 3:15pm, and 3:30pm to 5:00pm all in Vallee 300). And we invite you to consult the CSA program and website http://www.csa-scs.ca/files/webapps/csapress/annual-conferences/category/sessions/feminist-sociology for the full list of sessions that have been included by CSA under ‘feminist sociology’. For information on other Congress sessions of relevance to feminists that have been suggested by our co-sponsoring organizations, please see the website of the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women at www.criaw-icref.ca after May 10 (check under the heading ‘billboard’ on the home page.
A meeting of the Feminist Studies Research Cluster will be held at Congress on May 28 at 5:00pm in Vallee Room 300 to formally establish the cluster. We invite you to join us – we welcome your input to discussion about the research cluster’s future.
