The F-Word Conference showcases student research and community collaboration across activist and academic disciplines. The conference provides a venue for feminist scholars, students, and community members to learn each other’s skills, knowledges, and experiences. The F-Word Conference is a day long conference, and includes presentations from students, community organization workshop, free meals and keynote speeches. The Conference takes place on UBC campus, on the unceded and ancestral territories of the Musqueam Nation.
The F-Word Conference will provide a safe, anti-oppressive space for students, faculty and activists to collaborate and share their ideas in order to create meaningful dialogue and establish an academic and activist community. The F-Word Conference will create an environment where delegates can bridge the gap between theory and practice to become more effective, responsible and create scholars and activists.
Though we are not affiliated with the F Word Media Collective, a feminist media collective based out of Vancouver operating through Vancouver Co-Op Radio, click through for their website at www.feminisms.org.
