Island Studies is an expanding field that explores the social, economic, ecological, and cultural aspects ofislands.  Feminisms too,  are  enjoying  a  resurgence  globally  in  theories,  methods,  and  praxis.  This web conference, co-convened by Marina Karides and Noralis Rodriguez-Coss, is sponsored by the Small IslandCultures Research Initiative (SICRI), with support of the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Award,and the Department of Sociology at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo. The theme IslandFeminisms:Place,Justice,Movement bridges island and feminist studies, interdisciplinary fields that have broadened fromtheir original scope with new voices that have advanced and altered analytical frames. An island feministperspective starts with the lived experiences, challenges, and opportunities of islanders, recognizing thatthese are continuously shaped and reshaped by changes in identities, movements, constructs of genderand  sexuality,  race,  ethnicity,  and  indigeneity,  and  systems  of  global  and  local  power.   We  inviteparticipants interested in pursuing questions about place, justice, and movement in islands to share workacross these three themes.
