The question of what to write, how to write, and where to write have always been central to feminism. Writing matters not only in the dissemination of knowledge but to the creation of feminist publics. The history of feminism includes a history of materials that have been passed around. In this workshop we hope both to return to some of these histories of feminist writing

Feminist Publishing - Carol Stabile

Carol Stabile

This strand on writing, publishing and the politics of communication operates within the remit of the CREATe project Whose Book Is It Any-way to open out debates on copyright, open access and emergent busi-ness models in order to address the wider ethics and politics of commu-nication inside and outside of the academy. This politics is oriented not just toward a contest over, say, the future of the book as an ana-logue/digital object, but also toward questions of publishing ethics, care, relations and process.

Straying - Feminist Genres - Sarah Kember

Sarah Kember

The second speaker of this panel, which reflects on how feminists have experimented with different modes of writing by inviting three feminist academics based at Goldsmiths to reflect on their decisions to stray from the usual genre of academic writing. What can we learn about feminism and genre from the point of view of feminist academics who have strayed? The discussion will widen to consider why “straying” might itself be a feminist method.
