Indian Historiography after Feminism: Crisis or Business as Usual?
THURSDAY, April 30, 4 PM / Humanities 210

What spaces have been occupied by feminist historiography? Has the very success of “women's history” been at the cost of longer-term intellectual gains? This paper will discuss some of these challenges to the thinking of feminism’s mission within and beyond the academy.
