The following is a message from Ann Schofield:

My presentation on 2 December will not be a conventional research paper. This month I was part of a round table discussion at the national meetings of the American Studies Association. The topic was Ellen Messer-Davidow's book, Disciplining Feminism. The book evaluates the state of feminist scholarship in various disciplines as well as in Women's Studies. Messer-Davidow provocatively asks whether the structure of universities has co-opted the radical potential of feminism. The ASA session ranged widely around this and other questions, including the powerful rise of the right in America politics. I'd like to use the Gender Seminar as a forum for continuing this discussion and orientating it toward our situation here at KU.

Sections of Disciplining Feminism: From Social Activism to Academic Discourse are on e reserve. Reading the book is not "required" but it's what I'll use to initially structure our seminar.
