This is a session organized by Feministas Unidas, an allied organization that has a guaranteed session at NeMLA.

Feministas Unidas invites you to join our panel on artistic and theoretical contributions by female and feminist artists in the Hispanic world. In our panel we will discuss the ways in which the current generation of feminist artists and theorists shapes feminist discourse and transforms it to suit the needs of this time in history.

Which feminist traditions are worth preserving and which will have to be displaced as a result of our evolving understanding of the complexities of female marginalization? What kind of artistic and theoretical innovations serve the goals of feminism?
