The Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies of the Faculty of Social Sciences presents “Lesbian ARTivisms in the Age of Globalization”, an international symposium which will take place from September 22 to 24, 2016 at the University of Ottawa.

The presentations will be accessible in French, English and Sign Language and it will take place in an accessible space.

This international interdisciplinary conference will bring together over thirty artists, activists and researchers from a dozen countries. It will address contemporary lesbian (women-who-love-women, lesbian and queer-identified women) issues and respond the following question: how, why and in which struggles do lesbians currently invest?

This event is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the RéQEF (Réseau québécois en études féministes), the Quebec Lesbian Network (QLN) and the Groupe Intervention Vidéo (GIV).
