Reception to follow

In anticipation of the 20th anniversary of Joan W. Scott’s now-classic essay “The Evidence of Experience,” first published in Critical Inquiry in 1991, we have organized a symposium around several concepts that we take to be key in feminist theorizations of history in the current fin de siecle—experience, echo, and event. We draw the first two concepts from Scott, who has for a generation been at the forefront of important theoretical and methodological developments in feminist historical studies, and the third from Tani Barlow, author of the conceptually exciting and historically rich book The Question of Women in Chinese Feminism (Duke 2004).

In conjunction with the symposium, we have also organized a reading group for graduate certificate students in Women’s and Gender Studies. For more information, please contact Lisa Diedrich at ldiedrich@notes.cc.sunysb.edu.

This event was generously supported with a FAHSS Grant from the Provost’s Office at Stony Brook University, with additional support from the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, the History Department, the Humanities Institute, and Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies at Stony Brook.
