Radical Love Across Differences

“Without love, our efforts to liberate ourselves and our world community from oppression and exploitation are doomed.” – bell hooks

Graduate students from the Boston-area Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality (GCWS) present a biannual interdisciplinary conference entitled Radical Love Across Difference to be held on a virtual platform on April 9-11, 2021. This virtual conference, featuring the work of graduate students from across the world, is free and open to everyone.

By using a praxis of love to highlight the struggles toward liberation, we approach what hooks suggests is a culture of refusing systems of domination. The importance of expressing, maintaining, and transforming radical love, especially across differences, is more pressing than ever. This conference seeks to explore the role radical love plays in health crises, climate change, racial justice, migration, economic justice and further social justice movements through community and belonging, pedagogy and literacy, creative expression and storytelling, virtual life and presence, and further fields
