Abstract

As an interdisciplinary field, Women's Studies has long been in critical conversation with a variety of disciplines, such that its languages of analysis, methodological priorities, and histories of research and writing are often recognizably situated in relation to the disciplinary identities of its practitioners. In recent years however, with the international growth of PhD programs, there has been much discussion and speculation about the extent to which Women's Studies has (or should have) its own post-disciplinary or transdisciplinary mode of inquiry. Posed as a question, the field asks itself: does Women's Studies have a distinctive tradition of inquiry of its own? This site contains summaries and webcasts of papers delivered at the Feminist Theory Workshop: March 23-24, 2007 at Duke University.
