AWP 2013 Feminist Panels Guide!

AWP is an amazing opportunity to overload on all things literature and spoken performance. We are in a ripe environment to make new connections, deepen our levels of understanding, and learn from our favorite authors. AWP is a T-Rexcellent time to get super smart in a short time span, with like minded folks! Below I have collected a sampling of panels directly discussing feminist and women’s issues, or feminism is implicit in the argument as in the case of In Sickness and In Health — how our society practices the medical gaze is similar to the male, patriarchal gaze directing the agency of individual bodies. Other panels think about ethnicity, pop culture  community and mentorship, and research practices. Download AWP 2013 Feminist Panel Guide.
