Throughout the varied histories of diverse feminist movements, collaboration has been both charged with revolutionary potential and fraught with debilitating failure. In this roundtable, we aim to delve deeply into this experience of collaboration: What makes collaborative projects so profoundly powerful, yet so remarkably challenging? Is it possible to engage in a politics of collaboration that elides assimilation? How can we work together across boundaries of geographical location and social identity without obscuring the differences in experience and power that these borders produce?



We invite you to join us for this conversation with Amy Sara Carroll, Amber DiPietra, Katherine Gibson, Petra Kuppers, and Nadine Naber. Identifying as feminist scholars, performance artists, poets, artist-activists (artivists), archivists, educators, bodyworkers, and organizers, and engaging in work in the fields of disability studies, Arab-American studies, Latin@ studies, literary studies, and economy and geography studies, these presenters will lead us in sharing stories of collaboration, discussing the value and influence of collaboration, and strategizing about to how to engage in collaborative practices.
