Island feminist perspectives start with the lived experiences, challenges, and opportunities of islanders, recognizing that these are continuously shaped and reshaped by changes in identities, movements, constructs of gender and sexuality, and race, ethnicity and indigeneity, as well as systems of global and local power.

Our first steps—in what we hope becomes a transnational, multi-lingual space for critical feminist and queer activism and scholarship on and for islands—is to host the first Island Feminisms Conference in conjunction with the Small Islands Culture Research Initiative (SICRI) from June 13th-15th, 2020.
