The theme of this year’s SWS meeting was Intersectionality and Privilege. The highlights for me were presentations by Brenda J Allen on how to Praxis what we Preach, and the Sisters of Color session on Collective Healing.
SWS meetings are also a great opportunity to network with more senior scholars and to build relationships with feminist scholars across North America and (to a lesser extent) internationally.
It was also my first time visiting New Mexico. I’m pictured here with my lovely conference buddy, Paulina, along with snapshots of some of the many murals you can find downtown. I also enjoyed riding the local buses and chatting with folks I met along the way.
Our day trip to the Sandia Mountains was also a highlight and offered some much-needed respite for my nature-loving spirit 🙂
