Transnational Feminism

Aisha M. Beliso-De Jesús


Typically understood as an unbound field, transnational feminisms comes together as a paradigm that calls attention to the intersections of globalizations, race, sexuality, diasporas and nationalisms from a transnational perspective. Mostly from third world and women of color feminists, we will examine this unwieldy designation in relation to methodologies, analytics, contentions and silences. Where and when does the emergence of this term come to be? How does it differ from other feminist and internationalist/globalization perspectives? What role (if any) does religion or spirituality play in the differing theoretical frameworks?
