The Journey Not Only the Arrival, Critical Connections Not Only Critical Mass: (Re)Thinking Feminist Movements
Thursday, November 14th-Sunday, November 17th 

The National Women’s Studies Association  leads the field of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. Established in 1977, NWSA has more than 2,000 members worldwide. Our annual conference regularly draws more than 2,300 attendees and is the only annual meeting in the continental United States of America and its colonies that is exclusively dedicated to showcasing the latest feminist scholarship. 

The 2024 conference will open on Thursday, November 14th with three pre-conferences and our 2024 Pedagogical Institute. The Program Administration and Development (PAD) and Women’s Centers (WC) meetings offer networking and professional development opportunities for women’s, gender, and sexuality studies and women’s center administrators. The Women of Color Leadership Project (WoCLP) is designed to support women of color in their professional goals and leadership development; interested candidates must apply separately to participate. 

The General Conference begins on Thursday afternoon and concludes Sunday afternoon; it will feature concurrent breakout sessions, receptions, an awards celebration honoring members of the Association, and opportunities for connection.
