On October 25, 2021, ISSR and the UMass Department of Sociology's Committee on Colloquia and Social Events hosted a panel discussion among eight contributors to an important new edited volume of feminist theory and practice. Video from the online event can be viewed here for a period of 120 days.
Transnational Feminist Itineraries (Duke University Press) brings together scholars and activists from multiple continents to demonstrate the importance of transnational feminist theory and activist practice in challenging neoliberal globalization and the rise of authoritarian nationalisms around the world.  This new volume illuminates transnational feminism's unique constellation of elements, and contests the idea that transnational feminism works in opposition to other approaches—especially intersectional and decolonial feminisms.
