Hour 4: Gender Studies: What Histories Do We Want to Claim?
Panelists discussed the problems of continuity and discontinuity across feminist generations. What turns have we taken, and how do we assess those now? Part of this session was an exploration of what histories we want to claim. We revisited critiques that have been made of the gender studies undertaking and offered some responses. This panel also provided a space for discussion about progressive traditions at The New School and what they do and do not include. Is the history of The New School a weight on innovative gender, queer, and race theory, or does it provide something unique and inspirational?
