Projects & Campaigns
The Transnational Feminism Research Circle is a project of the International Institute of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It partners with scholars and groups across campus interested in the study of transnational women's movements. It collaborates with Femsem (Training Seminar in Sociology of Gender) in the Department of Sociology; the Geographies of Feminism and Difference Series in the Department of Geography, the Transnational Gender History Series in the Department of History.
This new research circle focuses on how organizations and governments "mainstream" gender equity concerns into international policy, particularly on the transformation of feminist knowledge into “gender expertise” in various policy arenas. This project is designed to (1) deepen feminist policy-making expertise in Madison, (2) build connections between Madison gender scholars and those considered “gender experts” in policy institutions, and (3) advance UW as a globally recognized center for feminist policy knowledge.
