Genealogies of Feminism

Friday, October 19, 2001–Saturday, October 20, 2001
All Day

William Andrews Clark Memorial Library
2520 Cimarron Street

—a conference organized by Anne K. Mellor, University of California, Los Angeles; Lynn Hunt, University of California, Los Angeles; and Felicity Nussbaum, University of California, Los Angeles

The intent of the conference is to explore the complex ways in which theology and religious practice in the eighteenth century in Europe influenced the development of feminism (as theory and cultural practice) during the Enlightenment. In particular, the question will be raised whether religious movements (especially the Old and New Dissent in Britain and the Evangelical revival in the Church of England) played a negative or positive role in the development of Feminist theory and practice.
