About the Theme
In response to wide demand, NWSA 2010 builds on conversations that began in Atlanta at the 2009 conference. Difficult Dialogues II will explore a range of concepts and issues that remain under theorized and under examined in the field of women’s studies. 
 
NWSA 2010 identifies several thematic areas in which ongoing and new difficult dialogues are urgently needed:
 
  • Indigenous Feminisms: Theories, Methods, Politics
  • Complicating the Queer
  • The Politics of Nations
  • “Outsider” Feminisms
  • The Critical and the Creative
