Michelle Trim presents paper at National Women's Studies Conference
Michelle Trim presented a paper at the National Women's Studies Association conference in Atlanta, Ga, that was held Nov. 12-15.
Trim's talk, "Post-Feminist Amnesia: Negotiating Resistance to Feminist Histories," offered pedagogical strategies for incorporating the work of feminist blogs into undergraduate women's studies courses to both perpetuate women's memories and to recover feminism as a meaningful category.
Trim argued for an increased awareness of ways that feminists can and should resist the loss of women's memories as part of our national history. Ultimately her paper suggests that although the title "post-feminist" may be supported by postmodern critical theories of gender, it does not recognize the work, both scholarly and activist, that feminists undertake in and out of the academy.
